Copy columns within same table

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 19, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

How do I move the data from one column to another column within the same table?

I have work phone numbers that should be in the contact phone number column.

Will the following work:

     UPDATE table1

     SET contact_phone =

    (SELECT work_phone

     FROM table1

     WHERE id IN

     (SELECT id FROM table1)

Entity Data Model and database view returning the same columns as there are in a table


When adding a stored procedure into the Entity Data Model I can select whether the procedure returns a scalar, a (new) complex type or one of the entity types I already defined. 

How do I do something similar for a view?

I mean assuming I have a view like this

CREATE VIEW FilteredFoos as SELECT Foo.* FROM Foo join ... WHERE ...

(that is a view that implements some involved filtering, but returns all columns from one table) how do I add it to the project so that I can use the entity set, but get the Foo objects, not some new FilteredFoo objects.

var foos = myDB.FilteredFoos.Include("Bar").ToList();

foreach (Foo foo in foos) { ...

Thanks, Jenda

How to create scrolling table for columns in a SharePoint Designer Data View


I have a fairly complex SharePoint Designer 2007 Data View they have added two more requirements.

1. Have the columns on the right side be able to scroll left to right as there is a large number of columns, while the first 3 columns on the left side stay locked in place.  This is only one list not two, and because of some other requirements I have it must remain to be just one list.

2. Then they also need to have scrolling up and down of the entire list with the headers locked in place.

The first requirement is more important than the second, but preferrably I need to do both.

I am new to XSL so not familar with the syntax. Is this something I can do on a custom Data View? Does anyone have any examples of how?

I have a drawing that show how it needs to look but I don't see an option here to upload a graphic.

So here is a link to my graphic example uploaded to my blog area: http://lindachapman.blogspot.com/  or just the image here: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_aB01ue__NvQ/TGL42MOvrGI/AAAAAAAAAA4/c3xP4uCy4BU/s1600/Scrolling.png

How to copy table data from test to production database

I'm using SQL Server 2008 R2 and I'd like to copy all data rows from one table of a test database to the identical table in a production database. The primary key of the table is referred to by other tables so a DELETE followed by a number of INSERTs won't do it because of referential integrity issues. What is the best method to replace the data rows in the destination database with the values from the source database? Thanks, Guido

Computed Columns in Table Variables or Table Types

I was just looking for confirmation that computed columns can or cannot be used in a @Table Variable or User-Defined Table Type. I'm trying this: declare @testtable as table(  [testcol] as case when [testcol] = '' then 'a' else 'b' end,  [testcol2] varchar(100) ); insert into @testtable select '','someval' insert into @testtable select 'c','someval2' select * from @testtable It all parses fine, but during the first insert an error is returned Msg 402, Level 16, State 1, Line 2 The data types void type and varchar are incompatible in the equal to operator. Thank you, Paul

Want to show FormView in Edit mode with specific table columns depending on their Genre??

hi, I have  a table in my database called "Profiles". This holds data on Female and Male personal characteristics. On my aspx, I have a formview in edit mode which is binded to an object data source with a GetDataByUserId Select method which retrieves data from the "Profiles" Table via a DAL. The "Profiles" table has some columns which relates to females only and some just males and some are generic to both. See example below     UserId - / of Type GUID GenreId /  of Type BOOL. Hip Size (For females) Dress Size ( For Females) ChestSize (For Men ) TrouserSize (For Men) Weight ( For both )   When the User logs in , they go to an update Page which has the Formview in Edit Item Mode and contains drop down Lists which are binded to the Users Selected Value. The DDL are in turn bound to their related table such as HIP, Dress, Chest, Trouser etc. Objective If a female user logs in I just want to show them the (Hip Size) DDL  and DressSizeDDL in the Edit item template of the formview and not the ChestSize DDL or  TrouserSize DDL. At present the GetProfileByUserId returns all colums from the table My question is how do I do this and just show DDL which are relevant to the Female or Male Only. In some cases the user may not have selected an item in the previous form so they could also be

Copy table (with content and links) from one page to another

Hi, I'm new to sharepoint and learning this software on my own.  I'm running WinXP Professional.  I've created a table on one page in a subfolder/directory (10Kgold) and would like to use the same table on a page in a different subfolder (24Kgold).  Both subfolders are in the same root folder.  Here are the steps I took: On 10kgold/bracelets.aspx page: right-click on element to copy --> select Copy On 24kgold/bracelets.aspx page: right-click --> Paste On the 24kgold/bracelets page, the "Paste" option was disabled, so then I knew I wouldn't be able to copy/paste the table I copied from 10K gold/bracelets page. I don't want to recreate this table again if I don't have to. Also, I've tried to copy and paste links within the same page, but that doesn't work either. Here are the steps: Select link (yellow-gold) on 10kgold/bracelets page: right-click --> Copy Scroll to where I want to paste the link Right-click (yellow-gold) on 24kgold/bracelets page: --> Paste Is there a way to copy and paste links and tables, etc. from one page to another, with the page/s being in either the same subfolder and/or a different subfolder as long as they are within the same root folder? Thanks in advance for your help.
