TSQL: Passing array/list/set to stored procedure (MS SQL Server)

Posted By: outcoldman     Posted Date: August 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
Passing array/list/set to stored procedure is fairly common task when you are working with Databases. You can meet this when you want to filter some collection. Other case - it can be an import into database from extern sources. I will consider few solutions: creation of sql-query at server code, put set of parameters to sql stored procedure's parameter with next variants: parameters separated by comma, bulk insert, and at last table-valued parameters (it is most interesting approach, which we can use from MS SQL Server 2008). Ok, let's suppose that we have list of items and we need to filter this items by categories ("TV", "TV game device", "DVD-player") and by firms ("Firm 1", "Firm2", "Firm 3). It will look at database like this So we need a query which will return us list of items from database. Also we need opportunity to filter these items by categories or by firms. We will filter them by identifiers. Ok, we know the mission. How we will solve it? Most easy way, used by junior developers - it is creating SQL-instruction with C# code, it can be like this List<int> categories = new List<int>() { 1, 2, 3 };   StringBuilder sbSql = new StringBuilder(); sbSql.Append( @" select i.Name as ItemName, f.Name as FirmName, c.Name as CategoryName from Item i inner join Firm f on i.FirmId =

Passing an array from C# code-behind to SQL Server stored procedure



 Via the button1_ click event I retrieve all files in a directory (Example Follows)

    protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        DirectoryInfo di = new DirectoryInfo(@"C:\Test");

        foreach (FileInfo filename in di.GetFiles())

I now need to check whether this filename exists as a field in a SQL Server table.  For example, if the directory retrieves a file named ExampleFile.txt which does not exist in the (Table = TableFileStore;s Field = FileRetrievals) then I want to insert the filename. 

How do I construct a stored procedure to pass the filename(s) into a stored procedure as a parameter?  Do I need to also create an array of filenames and pass the array into my stored procedure?  Does the stored procedure belong within the foreach loop?    

How best to achieve the above goal?


Passing array paramaters to stored procedure


Hello all

I need to send an array of strings to a stored procedure and then use that array of strings to create a filter of the data returned.

string[] filter = new string[2];

filter[0] = "product 1";

filter[1] = "product 2";

and use that array to run the fillowing sql command:

select * from tableName where productDescription = filter[0] or productDescription = filter[1]

Is that possible?

What is the best way to do that?

Thank you

Send Email from SQL Server Express Using a CLR Stored Procedure

One of the nice things about SQL Server is the ability to send email using T-SQL. The downside is that this functionality does not exist in SQL Server Express. In this tip I will show you how to build a basic CLR stored procedure to send email messages from SQL Server Express, although this same technique could be used for any version of SQL Server.

If you have not yet built a CLR stored procedure, please refer to this tip for what needs to be done for the initial setup.

"Out-of-Range" Error When Passing DateTime (DD/MM/YYYY) into Stored Procedure

Hi everybody, I hope some of you will be able to help me regarding this datetime problem. The query in the stored procedure doesn't accept DD/MM/YYYY format, although all dates are being saved in the format of DD/MM/YYYY hh:mm:ss. Example of query that throws the error: @sDate = '31/8/2010' @eDate = '1/9/2010' SELECT * FROM tb_Schedule where scheduledate >= @sDate and scheduledate <= @eDate  Error:  The conversion of a char data type to a datetime data type resulted in an out-of-range datetime value FYI, the SQL Server 2005 is defaulted to British English(2057)for all logins and the DB server itself and my server Regional and Language is set to English (United Kingdom). Any help will be appreciated. Thank you very much.  

can a Workflow access a stored procedure and pass the parameters from the list data to the stored pr

The reason that I would like to consider this functionailty is because my table architecture is complicated and I do not want to modify my master table to accept all of this data where some of the data should be normalized into sub tables.  Has anyone see evidence of the stored-procedure parm approach?  Is this best accomplished through VS 2010 or can I do it through SPD? Thanks

TSQL Stored Procedure

Hi, I have a rather odd Stored Procedure I need to write, I was wondering if anyone could help me?   I have two tables which I need to basically match up and get information from.   Table: FormField - FormFieldID (PK) - Name   Table: FormFieldValues - FormFieldValue - FormFieldID - Value (Value of the FormField) - FormKey (This is to keep the form values together, for example Bob's DOB is 01/01/1975)   Example View   FormField.Name          FormFieldValue                   FormKey First_Name                 Bob                                    1 First_Name                 Jim                                     2 DOB                 &nbs

Passing Table Variable to Stored Procedure

My stored procedure expects a uniqueidentifier as a parameter.  However, this unique identifier is stored in a table variable, which looks like this:DECLARE @TableGiftGuid table ( GiftGuid uniqueidentifier )When I try to execute a stored procedure by passing the GiftGuid like so:EXEC my_procedure (SELECT GiftGuid FROM @TableGiftGuid) I get an error. What I ended up doing is declaring another variable, storing the GiftGuid into it and then passing the variable to the stored procedure like this: DECLARE @TableGiftGuid table ( GiftGuid uniqueidentifier ) DECLARE @GiftGuid uniqueidentifieDECLARE @TableGiftGuid table ( GiftGuid uniqueidentifier ) DECLARE @GiftGuid uniqueidentifier SET @GiftGuid = (SELECT GiftGuid FROM @TableGiftGuid) EXEC my_procedure @GiftGuidThat works, but is there a more elegant way of doing this?

Executing an SSIS package from an stored procedure and passing a parameter to it:

Hello all, I'm trying to execute an SSIS package from an stored procedure, using xp_cmdshell. When I execute the package, hard coding the value on the variable, I get rows inserted to my destination tables, which indicates my package pulled the correct data based on the TransactionID parameter. When I execute the package from the stored procedure, the package executes without issues, but I get no rows inserted into my destination tables, which leads me to think it is a data type issue, between the package and the variables I'm using within the stored procedure. The variable TransactionID on the SSIS package, is a string data type, therefore I'm passing it as a varchar from the stored procedure. Am I doing this correctly? Maybe I'm missing something, can you guys see anything wrong? Also, I tried login into the server and executing these 2 commands on the cmd prompt: One with "" quotes between the TransactionID value: dtexec /FILE "D:\SSISPackages\MyOrderCheckProcess\MyOrderCheck_RenewalOrder.dtsx" /CONFIGFILE "D:\SSISPackages\MyOrderCheckProcess\MyOrderCheckProcess_Config.dtsConfig" /CHECKPOINTING OFF  /REPORTING EWCDI  /SET \Package.Variables[User::TransactionID].Properties[Value];"470219"   And also one without quotes between the TransactionID value: dtexec /FILE "D:\SSISPackages\MyOrderCheckProcess\MyOrde
