What is the default Cursor used in Stored Proc

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 23, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
When stored proc defined like below, what is the default cursor that sql server uses. In oracle we have to provide like "open cursor for.." , why its different in sql server?

Create Procedure GetProc
        @Id int
    FROM sample
    WHERE id = @Id

Oracle stored proc optionally returning a ref cursor.

Hi, I would like to use a technique for exception handling on our database stored procs whereby, each proc exposes a p_error_code output parameter of type int. 0 indicates no error, and other values indicate application specific exceptions. Now, where a stored proc will return a ref cursor if no exceeptions occur, we would like to check the p_error_code and if not 0, then use the ref cursor. If an exception does occur, then the stored proc may or may not have populated the ref cursor, but the dotnet code will almost definately not read the contents. Now, we have done this with the following code:            OracleCommand command = CommandFactory.CreateCommand(transaction, "RTS.p_get_audit_trail");             command.Parameters.Add(ParameterFactory.CreateParameter("p_doc_id", RTSId));             command.Parameters.Add(ParameterFactory.CreateParameter("p_rev_id", RevisionId));             command.Parameters.Add(ParameterFactory.CreateParameter("p_c_item_id", ContentItemId));             command.Parameters.Add(ParameterFactory.CreateParameter("p_error_code", OracleType.Number, ParameterDirection.Output));          &nbs

Data Truncation issue with Enterprise Library Logging WriteLog stored Proc


Hi ,

I'm using Enterprise Library Logging  feature for logging. The issue i am facing is when the Logging message is too large(more than 65534 chars) ,complete data  is not logged in the Formatted Mesage column which is  of data Type nText .

I am able insert complete data if i try inserting from Sql insert Query from sql management studio. Do i need to add any attributes to data base listener or do i need to change the sp.

 Is there any way to increase the WriteLog stored proc param size in EnterpriseLibrary.Logging config file ? . Please let me know.


Thanks In Advance.

Populating a list box in InfoPath from a sql stored proc


I have an InfoPath web enabled form that gets published to a SharePoint site.  I need to add a list box to the form that gets populated with data returned from an existing call to a SQL Stored Proc.  

As the form works now, the user types in a patient id #, then clicks a button that calls the Stored Proc and returns any patients that match the given patient ID.  This part works.  

My task is to add a list box so that if more than one patient is returned , display the list box with all of these patients populated in it.

I am hoping to do this within the confines of the existing code.  The existing code looks like this:

private bool LoadPatientInformationFromDB(string patientId, string patientFirstName,
      string patientLastName, string patientMiddleInitial, string birthDate, string gender,
        string admitDate, string location)
      bool completed = false;
      //Load from DB
      SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(GetOrderSetDBConnectionString()); 
      //Create Form Builder
      formBuilder = new FormBuilder();
      SqlDataAdapter adpt = null;
        if (!String.IsNullOrEmpty(patientId) || !String.IsNullOrEmpty(patientFirstName) ||
          !String.IsNullOrEmpty(patientLastName) || !String.IsNullOrEmpty(patientMiddleInitial)
          || !St

Sending Email by exeucting a stored proc on SQL Server that references CLR

Hi Guys, I want to modify the data type of the @body variable in the stored procedure that sends an email. The stored procedure is as follows:   CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[spSendMail4]<br/> @recipients [nvarchar](4000),<br/> @cc [nvarchar](4000),<br/> @subject [nvarchar](4000),<br/> @from [nvarchar](4000), @body [nvarchar](4000), @attachment [nvarchar](4000)<br/> WITH EXECUTE AS CALLER<br/> AS <br/> EXTERNAL NAME [SMTPCLR].[StoredProcedure].[spSendMail]<br/> GO   I want to change the @body variable to data type: text. The reason for this, is because I am sending an HTML email whose content (characters) exceed 8000. Basically the new stored procedure should looks like below:   CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[spSendMail4] @recipients [nvarchar](4000), @cc [nvarchar](4000), @subject [nvarchar](4000), @from [nvarchar](4000), @body text, @attachment [nvarchar](4000) WITH EXECUTE AS CALLER AS EXTERNAL NAME [SMTPCLR].[StoredProcedure].[spSendMail] GO   If attempt to make this change, I get the below error:   CREATE PROCEDURE for "spSendMail" failed because T-SQL and CLR types for parameter "@body" do not match.   Understandably so, because from the article http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms131092%28SQL.100%29.aspx CLR data type (.NET Framework) is not compa

Replication stored procedures not being passed parameters- default appears instead

Hi I am setting up transactional replication from Oracle to SQL Server, it is working fine for 9 tables, but for one it fails on updating and deleting with a message like this: Procedure or function 'spu_VGSM_SUBMISSION_CONTACT' expects parameter '@pkc1', which was not supplied. This is correct, in that the sp should be being passed this parameter, but when I do a trace it will show something like: exec "spd_VGSM_SUBMISSION_CONTACT" '12-3456-10','BLOGGS','S', '2010-07-01 12:43:43', 'M123456' default In other words, the old primary key values which should be being passed in are being replaced with "default". I am using the CALL syntax for the update sp. If anyone can suggest why this is I would be very grateful. This is the publication: exec sp_addpublication @publication = N'_Submission_Contact', @description = N'Transactional publication from Oracle Publisher.', @sync_method = N'concurrent_c', @retention = 0, @allow_push = N'true', @allow_pull = N'true', @allow_anonymous = N'false', @enabled_for_internet = N'false', @snapshot_in_defaultfolder = N'true', @compress_snapshot = N'false', @ftp_port = 21, @ftp_login = N'anonymous', @allow_subscription_copy = N'false', @add_to_active_directory = N'false', @repl_freq = N'continuous', @status = N'active', @independent_agent = N'true', @immediate_sync = N'

Reading data to a table from a stored proc

This has me brain locked.  1. I've got a stored procedure.  2. It does a select with a couple joins.  I want to take the results of that stored proc and read them into some a table -- temp table would be ideal.  here's my (really tough) constraints... these really complicate things: 1. the stored proc uses dynamic SQL. As a consequence, I don't know the columns it's going to return (it's kind of the whole point of using it).  2. Since the stored proc uses dynamic SQL, it needs to use sp_executesql internally.    What won't work(i don't think?): 1. I can't create a function that returns a table and does a "return select * from....", since you can't (I don't think?) call a stored a stored proc in the return statement of a function 2. I can't just do an "Insert into #xyz exec .." because I can't pre-define the temp table (I think this is needed?). 3. I don't have a linked server. and i'd rather not. All of this runs local in the same instance of SqlServer, and will have to handle loads of volume (each hit will return a few million rows).  So (I think?) OPENQUERY  is out.  4. OPENROWSET is a possibility, I suppose, but again, everything is running locally. I think that goes through OLEDB (?) and I'm not sure that's even an option.    THOUGHTS???  HELP?? is it even possible?? Pl

Testing Foregin Key without error out of stored proc

I have a Customer table. Several dirrect mapping tables link to this record. In my stored procedure I would like to try and delete this Customer record and if any keys are bound to it, then catch that error without breaking the stored proc ( try - catch ) Is this possible in a stored proc? I would like to just use a print statement that the record couldnt be deleted. Thanks, Nick

SqlDataSource : in what order do parameters get fed to stored proc?

Hello, I'm wondering if someone can explain how a SqlDataSource determines the order in which parameters are fed to a stored procedure. I'm not able to find clear documentation.So suppose a proc has: CREATE PROCEDURE  updateOneCar@CarActiveFlagCheck int, @CommentsForCar varchar(1500) = NULL, @manufacturerID int...and then suppose the ASP.NET page has the manufacturerID supplied by a querystring, and has a FormView as follows: <asp:FormView ID="FormView1" runat="server" DataSourceID="SQL01"          DataKeyNames="manufacturerID" EditRowStyle-Wrap="False" RenderOuterTable="False">         <EditItemTemplate>         <div>             manufacturerID: <%# Eval("manufacturerID")%>             <br />             Is my Car on?: <%# Eval("carFlag")%>             <br />             Is my car Active Flag:             <asp:CheckBox ID="CarActiveFlagCheckBox" runat="server"              

Can i write stored proc for the two queries, truncating and inserting two different tables?

Hi All, I have two queries below. trying to write stored proc so i can combine these queries so i can use only one execute sql task. both the queries are truncating and inserting records in two different tables.

Converting a Stored Proc to a query

I have a stored procedure that I want to convert to a query that I can email to the DBAs to run.  The stored proc has 2 parameters (start and end date) as I need them to run the query in date chunks (i.e. 1/1/2010 - 1/31/2010) due to the size of the table. *** Please allow me to mark threads as answered and I will, Thank you ***

Stored Procedure Default Return Value

Tried searching and have not found the answer to this one.  Think I know from testing but want to be sure.   I have a SP on  MSSQL 2000 that I created.  Within the table I call 6 update statements.  All my params are input. I developing software using VS 2008 PRO with a typed dataset.  I added the stored procedure to my tableadapter and it created the subsequent update() method with an int return type.  I coded a statement to test the return value like so... int Success = tableadapter.update(value1,value2,etc) I examined the Success variable and found it to be 6. I looked at another SP that calls 7 update statements within it and the return value after being called was 7. I did not specify any return value in my SP.  I can only presume that the SP is by default returning the aggregate amount of rows affected.  My question is if my presumption is correct.  My reason for asking is I would like to know this value is reliable for testing that all 6 update statements in the SP were  successful.    Thank you.

can i use stored proc to send email.

Cursor problem with Stored Procedure and PHP

I'm struggling with accessing the result set of a stored procedure using the SQL Server Driver for PHP 1.1. I've already got a few of them running, but this one is special in that it has an XML input parameter which is parsed into a table variable. This table variable is then used within a select statement. When I execute the SP within Management Studio, it runs fine and returns exactly one result set with multiple rows. But when I execute it from PHP, I get the error message "Executing SQL directly; no cursor. ". I've tried every cursor type out there, the only one that doesn't fail is SQLSRV_CURSOR_FORWARD, but with that I'm not getting any results at all. The original SP is enormous, so I have stripped it down as far as I could so it still throws the error. If I remove the bold part, my PHP code executes fine.   USE [testsite] GO SET  ANSI_NULLS ON GO SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON GO ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[getCrossSellingItems]     @InputIds XML AS     SET NOCOUNT ON ;     DECLARE @tblInputIds TABLE     (         Id INT     );     INSERT INTO @tblInputIds (Id)     (         SELECT         T.Item.value('@Id', 'INT') FROM @InputIds.nodes('/Root/Item') AS T(

How to assign datatype at run time to a declared var in a stored proc?

Hi, I want to declare a local var. in sp. such that it would have the same datatype as a column in a specific table Example (forgive the syntax!) Decalre @Address  CustomerTable.Address The above would translate to the following at execution time Declare @Address VARCHAR(200) This feature was in Oracle, is it in SQL Server as well? Thanks. EK
