Fact Table Missing Records

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 18, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

  I am updating FACT TABLE. I am getting all the facts but when I do look-up to get corresponding values in the associated Dimensions, I am unable to find some of the records (say its missing or some inconsistent data or corrupt). So how do I go from here?

Fact table in DSV vs partitions pointed to a different table

I am seeing an issue in my cube for a partition that is based on a separate table than the Fact table in the DSV. I have 8 partitions all from different physical tables. In the DSV I used 1 of those 8 partition tables as the "source" of the DSV so I could model the relationships between the fact and the dimensions. On 1 of the 8 it loads over 1 million rows from the partition into the cube, but when I use the browser to show the count in that particular partition it shows the exact same number of records that are in the table that was used in the DSV. The strange thing is all the other partitions work fine except this 1. I have deleted the partition and added it back multiple times and cant get it to work right. Has someone seen this problem before?   I have run into this a couple times, one way of fixing it was to recreate the entire project in a new project, copy all objects from the old projects and rebuild. I cant seem to figure out another way of fixing this.Craig

Selecting different no. of records from the same table

Hello all, This might seem a basic thing but bothering me from last few days. Suppose I have a table containing 5 million records and I am running queries one by one (one query executes completly and then next query is fired)as below on that table. SELECT top 20000 FROM MyTable SELECT top 200000 FROM MyTable SELECT top 2000000 FROM MyTable  Now my questions are; Will SQL Server use same execution plan? As I am running these queries one by one in same order as given above, will second query take less time than it should if run standalone (only second query is fired, no query fired before that) and similarly will third query take less time than it should if run standalone (only third query is fired, no query fired before that), since there is a possibility of same execution plan being used?  Regards.

Get the count of the recently added records to a table

i need to create 2 temporary tables. The records inserted into the 2nd table is the same as that from table1. Now, i am inserting some other records into table 2.what i need is, to retrieve the count of the recently added records into table2.How to achieve this? 

Getting counts by 2nd Date Dimension Attribute with Snapshot Style Fact Table

  I have an MDX question finding hard to solve.  I have a Snapshot Fact Table with a snapshot of the records in the source system for each batch date.  All records in the fact table are assigned the batch date with the batch date key.  There are many records for each day and each batch date is an entire copy of the source records.  So, the grain of the fact table is one record for each batch date that exists in the source system.  These facts rows have another date in them for when the record was entered.  This date is different from the batch date in that the batch date is based on the day the batch was processed and the entered date is based on when the record was entered.  If a record was entered many days before, its batch date will be today but its entered date will be several days ago.  Therefore each day a copy of all the records entered the previous batch date and all the records added on today's batch date are present. Fact Table : FactSnaphshotKey (surrogate for easier administration) BatchDateKey (link to batch date dimension – date dimension, first in dimension list so it is used for semi aggregate measures) EnteredDateKey (link to entered date dimension – date dimension) Facts Count – measure for fact table - default measure from Analysis Services cube 2 Dim

Cannot Insert records in table using NHibernate

I am very much new with NHibernate. I am inserting a new record in the table. However, it seems that it does not insert. What I'm using is Fluent NHibernate.Below is the code which inserts records. public virtual void Save(string CreatedBy) { ISession NHSession = Star.CNPL_BusinessObjects.Common.Session.OpenSession(); ITransaction NHTransaction = NHSession.BeginTransaction(); try { this.Save(CreatedBy, NHSession); NHTransaction.Commit(); NHSession.Flush(); } catch (Exception ex) { NHTransaction.Rollback(); throw ex; } } public virtual void Save(string CreatedBy, ISession Session) { try { if (this.IsPersisted) { this.SaveAuditTrail(Session, false, CreatedBy); Session.SaveOrUpdateCopy(this); } else { Session.Save(this); } } catch (Exception ex) { throw ex; } }

Update an accumlating shapshot fact table

This is my first time implmenting an accumulating snapshot fact table and I require some guidance. Accumulating snapshot fact tables show the status at any given moment. It is useful to track items with certain life time, for example: status of order lines.eg everytime there is new piece of information about a particular purchase, we update the fact table record. We only insert a new record in the fact table when there is a new purchase requisition. What I really need to know is how best to handle the updates.  This really feels very similar to managing SCD-1's in dimension processing! Anyone able to advise? thanks in advance Here is a perfect example we can use  http://blog.oaktonsoftware.com/2007/03/accumulating-snapshot-use-accumulating.html Figure 1, below, shows an accumulating snapshot for the mortgage application process. The grain of this fact table is an application. Each application will be represented by a single row in the fact table. The major milestones are represented by multiple foreign key references to the Day dimension—the date of submission, the date approved by mortgage officer, the date all supporting documentation was complete, the date approved by an underwriter, and the date of closing.

daily complete cube rebuild four dimensions and fact table including remapping of all surrogate keys

Hi SSIS Engineers: Forgive me if this is a multi-forum question. Our primary activity in the next week is to automate the processing in SSIS, where I led the team to create complete processing flows for Full and Add in the order of Dimension, Measure Group, Partition, Cube, Database. These work. The problem occurs in a complete refresh of the ERP database that caused me manual effort inside SSAS, which I plan to find a way to automate in SSIS. I performed a complete refresh of our cube from the ERP source from a time perspective. We are automating this process in SSIS. In SSAS, I had to manually delete the four dimensions from the UDM view via the Solution Explorer. Since the complete refresh increased the surrogate keys in the dimensions and since the names were the same, I couldn't just drop the partition and reprocess the dimensions, since, in effect, new fact rows would have to be mapped to the new keys. SSAS held on to the old keys even with Full Processing of the Dimensions first, then the Cube. Until I dropped--deleted-- the dimensional tables from the Solution Explorer and the UDM then later readded the dimensions with the new surrogate keys (both add, update and delete dimensional attribute changes in full refresh) via the Add Dimension wizard, the cube kept the old surrogate keys and failed in measure group, fact, database and partition processing.

Problem with listing records from table (object not found)

Hi everyone, I'm creating a website based on ASP.NET MVC 2 and SQL Server 2008 R2 Express for the database. After creating the table in database, I want to list all records in that table.

how to return records in squence of inner join table?

Hi, I have test database with following script. I am trying to explain my problem with this sample db script. I am creating a temp. table with the ordered column from other table and then using that table to join the other table. If you notice the output of the below select query, the returned rows from first table are in the sequence of insertion not in the sequence of the temp. table. Is there any other way to retrieve rows in the sequence of temp. (joined) table? CREATE TABLE [dbo].[Table_2]( [c1] [int] NULL, [c2] [nvarchar](50) NULL ) ON [PRIMARY] GO INSERT [dbo].[Table_2] ([c1], [c2]) VALUES (1, N'z') INSERT [dbo].[Table_2] ([c1], [c2]) VALUES (2, N'y') INSERT [dbo].[Table_2] ([c1], [c2]) VALUES (3, N'x') INSERT [dbo].[Table_2] ([c1], [c2]) VALUES (4, N'a') INSERT [dbo].[Table_2] ([c1], [c2]) VALUES (5, N'b') INSERT [dbo].[Table_2] ([c1], [c2]) VALUES (6, N'c') CREATE TABLE [dbo].[Table_1]( [c1] [int] NULL, [c2] [nvarchar](50) NULL ) ON [PRIMARY] GO INSERT [dbo].[Table_1] ([c1], [c2]) VALUES (3, N'x') INSERT [dbo].[Table_1] ([c1], [c2]) VALUES (2, N'y') INSERT [dbo].[Table_1] ([c1], [c2]) VALUES (1, N'z') INSERT [dbo].[Table_1] ([c1], [c2]) VALUES (6, N'c') INSERT [dbo].[Table_1] ([c1], [c2]) VALUES (5, N'b') INSERT [dbo].[Table_1] ([c1], [c2]) VALUES (4, N'a&

Avoiding a SELECT distinct query generated by SSAS when using dimension derived from fact table

Hi, I am using a dimension derived out ot a fact table and the factt able primary key is dimension key. Issue is, there are large number of rows and so many attributes. SSAS issues distinct query and it takes large amount of time. Without the distinct statement, query takes only 3 min for 4 million rows. With the distinct, it takes 20 min. Becuase the fact primary key is the dimension key there is no need of a distinct statement. I know there is a option in the dimension to say "By Table" to avoid this. But unfortuantely, i breach the 4 GB limit for strings. Any suggestions for optimization? Thanks,  Sambath
