temporary tables in SQL Server 2008

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

Are there any changes in the rules for creating temporary tables in SQL Server 2008 comparing to 2005? 2008 example in 'SELECT INTO' explicitly uses 'tempdb' while in 2005 any database was OK. Is this just an illustration or change in the features?

Temporary Tables - MS SQL Server

Usage of temporary tables in MS SQL Server is more developer friendly and they are widely used in development. Local temporary tables are visible only in current session while global temporary tables are visible across all sessions.

Temporary tables in SQL Server vs. table variables

When writing T-SQL code, you often need a table in which to store data temporarily when it comes time to execute that code. You have four table options: normal tables, local temporary tables, global temporary tables and table variables. I'll discuss the differences between using temporary tables in SQL Server versus table variables.

Importing Access 2010 tables to SQL Server 2008 R2

I'm trying to import a series of Access 2010 tables to Sql Server 2008 R2.  The Access import drivers are for *.mdb (which if I recall was the file extension for Access when I was a kid, and don't recognize the .accdb file extention).  Similarly, the Excel driver is for Excel 2003.  Isn't there a driver and method to import directly to SQL 2008 from Access 2010? SQL is installed on my server, but Access is not installed on the server.  When I copy the file onto the server and try and open it directly into SQL, I get a 'no editor installed' error. I can't get the 'upsize' wizard to work becuase it won't open the connection to SQL, even though I enter the userid and password of the SQL DB owner.  I get the following error: ===================================================== Connection failed: ============================================================= I have to say I'm stumped.  The rest of the Office 2010 suite works really well together - perhaps I'm missing something very simple? Thanks!     I guess I could export my tables as Excel 2003 and then import them using Integration Services, or install SQL Express on my laptop and 'upsize' to that instance, but SQL State: ‘0100’ SQL Server Error: 11004 [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Dirver][TCP/IP Sockets]ConnectionOpen (Connect()). Connection failed: SQL

View Temporary Tables While Debugging in SQL 2008

Error when using SQL Server temporary tables with Eclipselink JPA

I am using SQL Server 2008 with Eclipselink JPA. SQL Server requires temporary table names to start with # e.g. #AS_ARCHIVE_TMP. When I execute a native query using the table e.g. INSERT INTO AS_ACTIVITY_AR (ACTIVITY_ID,ACTIVITY_TIME,ACTIVITY_TYPE) SELECT ACTIVITY_ID,ACTIVITY_TIME,ACTIVITY_TYPE FROM AS_ACTIVITY WHERE ACTIVITY_ID IN (SELECT ACTIVITY_ID FROM #AS_ARCHIVE_TMP)  I get a warning and then an error because the table name is interpreted as a bind parameter due to the #.  Missing Query parameter for named argument: AS_ARCHIVE_TMP null will be substituted.  Exception EclipseLink-4002 (Eclipse Persistence Services - 2.1.1.v20100817-r8050): org.eclipse.persistence.exceptions.DatabaseException Internal Exception: weblogic.jdbc.sqlserverbase.ddc: FMWGENSQLServer JDBC DriverInvalid parameter binding(s). Error Code: 0 Query: DataModifyQuery(sql="INSERT INTO AS_ACTIVITY_AR (ACTIVITY_ID,ACTIVITY_TIME,ACTIVITY_TYPE) SELECT ACTIVITY_ID,ACTIVITY_TIME,ACTIVITY_TYPE FROM AS_ACTIVITY WHERE ACTIVITY_ID IN (SELECT ACTIVITY_ID FROM ?) ") Is there some solution to this problem? Can I escape the table name somehow so it won't be treated as a bind parameter? I have posted the same question on the eclispelink forum, but I am posting it here in case someone else has come across the same issue.  Is it possible to create a temporary table without

Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 2008 does not list all tables in database

When logging into SSMS 2008 to a SQL2008 database when I expand the tables in a database I only see a few tables listed.  I can login to the same instance with SSMS 2005 and all of the tables are there.  Is there a reason why this is this way?

I can do a select * from in a query window for any of the tables in the database via SSMS 2008 as well and it work fine.  It just does not display the tables.

Inserting and updating 2 tables in sql server 2008 from 2 worksheets in Excel


hi all,

        I have an excel sheet with 2 tabs and has data in those 2 sheets(sheet1, sheet2) which correspond to different tables in the same database. This excel sheet gets updated daily, I am wiriting a console app( which will later be a batch build). I have to  insert the data from the excel sheet to corresponding tables (table1, table2,table3) in database when i run it and and also if the table has the same data already present it should ignore and if there are any modifications done the data it should update the table. I know we can do this using ado.net or LINQ, I am a little new to database based programming ..so any help is more appreciated. I have already tried googling but colud not find the perfect solution.

Howto use Visual Studo 2008 to maintain SQL Server 2005 tables and stored procedures


I I have an ASP.Net web site I built using Visual Studio 2008.  I also have a SQL 2005 database I use with this web site.  I presently use MS SQL Server MManagement Studio Express to add / modify SQL tables, stored procedures, etc.

Seven reasons to care about SQL Server 2008 R2

Microsoft begins to fully realize its vision of SQL Server as an information platform and not "just" a database. Hence the main theme for this release -- at least according to Microsoft -- is self-service BI. The PowerPivot plug-ins for Excel 2010 and SharePoint 2010 are easily going to make the biggest splash of all the new features, not least because they're the most complete. But then, SQL Server 2008 R2 isn't strictly necessary for PowerPivot for Excel, which works with plenty of other data sources.

sql server 2008 adventureworks database


dear Friends

For my MCTS 70 -433 examination, I recently installed sql server 2008 and installed the sample databases too. but my issue is, in that book they have mentioned a database called "AdventureWorks2008" and the nice thing is I don't have a such a database with me in my sql server 2008. 

And the query is 

-- MERGE Statement
USE AdventureWorks2008
MERGE INTO	Sales.SalesOrderDetailHistory AS SODH
USING Sales.SalesOrderDetail AS SOD
ON SODH.SalesOrderID = SOD.SalesOrderID
AND SODH.SalesOrderDetailID = SOD.SalesOrderDetailID
INSERT (LineTotal, SalesOrderID, SalesOrderDetailID, CarrierTrackingNumber, OrderQty
, ProductID, SpecialOfferID, UnitPrice, UnitPriceDiscount
, rowguid, ModifiedDate, Cancelled)
VALUES(LineTotal, SalesOrderID, SalesOrderDetailID, CarrierTrackingNumber, OrderQty
, ProductID, SpecialOfferID, UnitPrice, UnitPriceDiscount
, rowguid, ModifiedDate, DEFAULT)
UPDATE SET SOHD.Cancelled = 'True'
OUTPUT $action , inserted.* ;	

Please help me to overcome this issue and let me know where can I download that database too.

Thanking you

happy Coding
