How to select negation of a bit column's value

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
Hi There, This "should" be simple: I have a bit column and want to select it's negation. However this fails: Select Not <column name> from <table> So far I'm using the absurdly long: select convert(bit, (case when <column name> = 'true' then 'false' else 'true' end)) from <table> Anything friendlier than this? Thanks, Karl

BDC Column with Ability to Select Multiple Values


Use Case:

We are creating a storage location for technical product articles. These will be SharePoint publishing pages. Each page will have metadata assigned to it to make it searchable by properties. The possible values for one of the columns (Part Number) could potentially be sourced by our ERP system. I'd like to do this to eliminate the possibility of free-text entry errors, but there are probably over 10,000 parts so a drop-down list isn't feasible.


Ideal Situation:

The end user enters the part number and clicks a button to verify it against a BDC entry from our ERP system. If they weren't sure on the part number they needed, they could do a lookup from that metadata entry screen. They'd need to have the option to add multiple part numbers as one technical product article could reference multiple part numbers.



Is BDC an option for all of this or am I looking at a custom metadata solution? I thought I heard along the way that BDC only supported one value choice, but I couldn't find a verification for that in the forums.



Use BDC data in list as multi-select column

I have a document library that uses values from another system for its metadata.  Right now, we copy the values from the primary system into SharePoint so users can choose them.  I want to find a way to use the BDC connection that I have set up to automatically pull those values.  The problem is that the current metadata is set to multi-select.  So, I have a file that is in the library and it can be used for multiple clients - clients is a column in my library and users can select many entries.  When I set up a column to pull BDC data, it only allows single entry.  Does anyone have any ideas?

Using "select" as default in list choice column

I have some choice columns in a list.  I set the first item in the choice to read "Select".  However, if that field was not changed (it's not required) it displays the "select" on views and in the DisplayForm.aspx.  Is there a way to have it NOT display anything?  I tried setting the column to not show anything for the default, but it wouldn't work.
There are no mistakes; every result tells you something of value about what your are trying to accomplish.
