Table joined to multiple other table articles

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 12, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
Our database has recently been normalized for address information. We have three table articles,


Each of these three tables has a FK reference to a common [Address] table.

[Studio].[AddressGUID] = [Address].[AddressGUID]
[Client].[AddressGUID] = [Address].[AddressGUID]
[Employee].[AddressGUID] = [Address].[AddressGUID]

This setup suits us, but there are different types of filters on Studio, Client, and Employee

[Studio] table is a @partition_options = 0, download-only, not filtered
[Client] table is @partition_options = 1, filtered by [Client].[Filter] = HOST_NAME()
[Employee] table is @partition_options = 1, filtered by [Employee].[Filter] = HOST_NAME()

I only want [Address] records that match either a Studio, Client, or Employee to show up. BOL suggests that each article should only have 1 parameterized filter and 1 join filter maximum. The only way that I can see that's acceptable is to make [Address] with @partition_options = 1 and a filter clause of
'[Address].[AddressGUID] IN (
SELECT [AddressGUID] FROM [Studio]
WHERE [Client].[Filter] = HOST_NAME()
UNION SELECT [AddressGUID] FROM [Employee]

Multiple Source connections in Configuration Table

 I am trying to query multiple servers for properties and record those properties in a table for later use.  I can make this work with the ForEachEnumerator by querying a table. However, I would like to use the Package Configurations option if I can instead.  Any options? Is there a way to force the package to loop through multiple values for one variable, contained in an SSIS configuration table?  Thanks in advance!

searching SQL table with multiple parameters

I want to query an SQL table using some Web controls to provide the parameters for filtering the records in the table. Results are displayed in a GridView. I have a TextBox with an ID of "keyword" where the user may enter one or more keywords. I'd like to search 2 columns for instances of these keywords. I also have a DropDownList named "category" that lists categories contained in a "category" column of the table. I have a dataset with a TableAdapter for the table I want to search. Got it working fine with the DropDown List but not sure how to proceed with the TextBox and keywords. What SQL query should I use? The user may not enter anything into the textbox, they may enter one word, or multiple words. This is where I am now: SELECT * FROM tablename WHERE category = @category AND ?????  

group on or filter multiple datasets in 1 table?

I am fairly new to using BIDS, so please bear with me. I currently have 2 datasets, and 1 table.  The layout of the table is: Header HeaderGroup1 HeaderGroup2 Details FooterGroup2 FooterGroup2 Footer Group1 Footer Group1 Footer This is working, but what I need to do is figure out a way to add another Footer Group2 that includes an expression which involves either using data from a 3rd data set because of needing a different filter, or figuring out a way to filter the same data set twice in the one table.   I can give more specific info if you let me know what you need. Thanks!

Entities Data Models with multiple Categories using a membership table

(Using SQL Server 2008 and ASP.NET MVC2) I have a simple business table and a category table. I have a 3rd table to map business to category, a many-to-many relationship. the Map table contains a BusinessID and CategoryID. I'm lost as to how I can load the categories into my Business View Model using the entities model.Without incorporating categories, my code looks like this: var businessList = from b in entitiesDB.Businesses select new Models.BusinessViewModel { BusinessID = b.BusinessID, Name = b.Name } with Business View Model defined as: public class BusinessViewModel { [ScaffoldColumn(false)] public Guid BusinessID { get; set; } public string Name { get; set; } public List<Models.CategoryViewModel> Categories { get; set; } } but if i want to populate the Categories with the mapped categories, how would one do that?Thanks in advance for any help!

Adding a table or view multiple times when building a query with BI Report Designer and Report Build

How can I add a table/view multiple times to a single query by using BI Report Designer or Report Builder 3.0?

Hi All

I have a single select query with multiple table joins in it.

I want to retrieve the Most Recent records from one of the table among the tables in multiple joins.


(select t1.col1, t2.col2 , t3.col3, t4.col4, t4.Add_Date,t5.col5,

from dbo.table1 t1

left outer join dbo.table2 t2 on t1.col1=t2.col2

left outer join

(select col3 from dbo.table3 where condition1="expr") as t3

on t1.col1=t3.col3

left outer join dbo.table4 t4 on t1.col1=t4.col4 order by t4.Add_Date

left outer join dbo.table5 t5 on t1.col1=t5.col5 )

Problem is that, I am not able to use the "Order by" for a particular table.

Data Flows in SSIS - Mapping Multiple source tables to Destination table **Newb question**

Hi I am new to SSIS and had a basic question. I have around 30+ tables in a db that needs to be migrated to a newer schema in the DB. The data flow task seems to be ideally suited for my requirement. My question is do I need to create 30+ different data flow tasks for this which will get executed one after the other or is there a better way to migrate large number of tables. Also how are referential constraints taken care of during such migration. Thanks and Regards, Ganesh Ranganathan

Multiple companies and fiscal calendars in date dimension table

We are creating an application where different companies can have their own fiscal calendar starting on different dates. For example one company’s fiscal year may start in April and some others in Sep. Also fiscal calendars may start at any date. (E.g. 29 Sept).

These fiscal calendars would be created for parent companies. We have added the parent company ids to the date dimension table. Please suggest the correct way of setting the attribute relationship in the above scenario. If this is not the right method to do this, please suggest the correct design approach for achieving this.


Thanks in advance,
