Creating a table-valued function on a user defined type in SQL Server CLR

We would like to be able to create a table-valued function on a user defined type.  We would like the syntax in SQL to look like it works for the XML nodes function:   DECLARE @myXml XML = '<a><b>1</b><b>2</b><b>3</b></a>' ; SELECT  node.query('text()') FROM    @myXml.nodes('a/b') nodes (node) ;   In other words, in the FROM clause, we can access the "nodes" method of the xml variable and it returns a rowset. Thanks!

trying to use CASE within table-valued function

Hi, I am trying to create a table-valued function that takes a string argument and, depending upon it's value, returns one of a number of identically-structured tables (and before someone asks why multiple identically structured tables, NOT my idea!).  I am a novice with T-SQL, but I've been attempting something like this for the function: Case @Input   When 's1' then return table1   When 's1' then return table2 End ... but I keep getting errors.  Can someone help get the ball rolling and show me the basics on how to set up a function to do this?  I'm hoping since I'm just redirecting to existing tables that this function will have minimal performance hits.

Cannot call Table Valued Function from Dynamic stored procedure statement

Hello,  I have a table-valued function that splits string into a table column. I can easily call this function from a stored procedure within a regular SELECT statement: SELECT * FROM Table1 WHERE Code1 = '1' AND Code2 IN(SELECT * FROM [dbo].[fnSplitValues](@Code2String))   However when I try to use the same logic for a dynamic SELECT statement: ‘SELECT * FROM Table1 WHERE Code1 = '1' AND Code2 IN(SELECT * FROM ' + [dbo].[fnSplitValues](@Code2String) + ')’ I get an error ‘Cannot find either column "dbo" or the user-defined function or aggregate "dbo.fnSplitValues", or the name is ambiguous.’ Any idea what is wrong with my dynamic SQL?   Please help, Lana

Schema comparer mistake in table-valued function (Nullability in column definition)

Hello. In my database i have table valued function. In its definition nullability of column is not set directly. This column has a user-defined data type. So the question is: is this column nullable? As i can see here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms174979.aspx   When column nullability is not explicitly specified, column nullability follows the rules shown in the following table. Column data type Rule Alias data type The Database Engine uses the nullability that is specified when the data type was created. To determine the default nullability of the data type, use sp_help. It should be not null, as user defined type is declared as not null. SMO says, that column is not null, but schema compare says it is nullable. Who is wrong and why?

Inline table valued function, full outer join and cross apply

Good afternoon, I'm experiencing quite strange issue with our T-SQL code. We have inline table-valued function which is using full outer join on 1 = 1. The reason why we do it this way is - we need to combine one row from 2 different result sets either of them can have either 0 or 1 row. The strange thing, that if we have the situation when both row-sets are empty, function does not return the row (as expected). Although, select which uses this function with cross apply "uses" the result from the previous row. Below is the simplified example. First select with ID = 2 predicate does not return any rows. Although if I remove this filter, it re-uses Value2 from the previous row. create FUNCTION dbo.Func(@Id int) RETURNS TABLE AS RETURN ( with CTE1(Value1) as ( select 'Value1' where @ID = 1 ) ,CTE2(Value2) as ( select 'Value2' from CTE1 ) select CTE1.Value1, CTE2.Value2 from CTE1 full outer join CTE2 on 1 = 1 ) go select * from dbo.Func(2) go create table dbo.TestTable ( ID int not null ) go insert into dbo.TestTable values(1), (2) go select t.ID, f.Value1, f.Value2 from dbo.TestTable t cross apply dbo.Func(t.ID) f where t.ID = 2 go select t.ID, f.Value1, f.Value2 from dbo.TestTable t cross apply dbo.Func(t.ID) f order by t.id go Our SQL version is: Microsoft SQL Server 2008 (SP1) - 10.0.2531.0 (X64) &nb

if NULL in database table - display empty string?


I have a table in an Sql Server Database from which I want to fetch data to a form. 

[Headline] [varchar](max) NULL,
[Text] [varchar](max) NULL,

[ID] [int] IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL,

[Headline] [varchar](max) NULL,

[Text] [varchar](max) NULL,

I want to check both Headline and Text to see if they are null, and if so display an empty string each for them. I've looked at some tutorials but don't yet understand really how to use it. DBNull? DataRow.IsNull? Something else? Can I check both Headline and Text at the same time or do I need do check them separately?

Desired rows not returned because of null values

Table valued function content


Hi there,

I have been scouring the web for hours with no success.

I am looking for a way to fetch a function's script/code content. I have a way of doing this with stored procedures (see below), I also need to do this with functions.



SELECT [sp].[name], [sc].[text], [sc].[ctext]
INNER JOIN SYS.OBJECTS AS [sp] ON [sc].[id] = [sp].[object_id]
WHERE [sp].[type] = 'p'


Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance for all the trouble.

TSQL cell balance from previous non null row table contains 20mill + rows so cursor not practical


I have a requirement to carry a running total forward in a table containing multiple periods and accounts, the table extract below shows an example

for row_num 5 the RunningTotal is -32.98, I would like to UPDATE the value of row_nums 6 through 9 to be -32.98 as they are at present NULL, the row_num 9 has a RunningTotal value of -32.69 I would like to UPDATE all preceding NULL values with -32.69 (10 through 13), the pattern being NULL value to be updated with populated value untill new populated value encountered 

I have set a field to be row_num using ROW_NUMBER () based upon TenancyNumber and WeeklyPeriod, a cursor is not practical in this instance as this table has rapid growth and presently has population of 20 mill + rows


rttdrtcw_id TenancyNumber WeeklyPeriod Tran_Year Tran_Week Receipt Debit Credit Adjustment row_num RunningTotal

18947           111                 200005        2000            5              -247.4   247.69 0     0            

SQL Server 2008 CLR Table-Valued function works exactly twice, then fails unless assembly reloaded.


Very simple TVF UDF uses WebRequest and HttpWebReponse, passing the response stream off to custom class that implements IEnumerable. First invocation has a good delay (seen many other posters on this issue), second invocation is lightening fast, then all calls after that produce this error:

Msg 6522, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
A .NET Framework error occurred during execution of user-defined routine or aggregate "tvf_OneMinuteBars":
System.Net.WebException: The operation has timed out
   at System.Net.HttpWebRequest.GetResponse()

Now, I've tried all manner of settings on the webrequest: KeepAlive, Timeout (currently 15 secs), Proxy = null. But I just can't figure it out. What is really a bummer is that I can debug invoke this against a local SQL Server as many times as I like. But if I deploy (in VS) to two different servers, or if I manually copy the assembly to the servers and do the CREATE ASSEMBLY / CREATE FUNCTION manually, it always times out after the second invocation.

Here is the tricky part: the object calling GetResponse calls HttpWebResponse.GetResponseStream(), storing the reference in a property. Then the object reference passed to the constructor of a custom class implementing IEnumerable, which does the right things with the response stream. Super fast, n

Using jQuery to Filter Table Rows

The project is using the .net GridView control, so I had limited control over the output HTML code. Still, I think this code can work for most tables. One thing to notice: you should use the class "filterable" on your table or on one of its parents for the code to work.
First, we need a text box:
ASP.NetWindows Application  .NET Framework  C#  VB.Net  ADO.Net  
Sql Server  SharePoint  Silverlight  Others  All
