How to replace/change a column in a select statement

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 14, 2011    Points: 0   Category :
 

I have a column called datedx which is defined as varchar8, and the format is yyyymmdd.

If the length is 8, then it is ok.  There are 3 possibilities in this field:

1.  If it is yyyymmdd, then it is ok.

2.  If it is yyyymm, then I would like the result to be yyyymm + 15.

3.  If it is yyyy, then I would like the result to be yyyy+0715.

Please help me to write this into a script.

Thank you for your help.

Sincerely,

Sally

select statement to find a column which contains the word

  

hi,

I am trying to find out how to select a row of data from a table, where a column contains a keyword (from a querystring)

How would i write this select statement? I only want the column to contain a keyword, along with other words, rather than the columns only data is the keyword.

eg: the row below would be returned because column2 contains 'hello'

column2

thanks!

Bug: Does not change column type from nvarchar to ntext

  

Scenario: If you create a table with a column of type nvarchar, populate it with some content and try to modify it using the WebMatrix editor, from nvarchar to ntext, it does not display any error message or warning that this is not possible. It silently saves and reverts the change, back to nvarchar. Wasted some hours on this issue as I thought my column was ntext, but in fact was still nvarchar.

Expected behavior: It should change to ntext, or if SQL CE doesn't support that, it should notify the user that no change was applied.


dynamically change column names in Crystal reports

  

I need to develop 3 pages.

On the first page user defines atmost 7 column names to be displayed on the report. I'm saving these names in a Sql DB table 'Columns' with Column_Nm and Column_ID as Table columns.

On the second page I'm retrieving column_Nm from the table and displaying them on the page so that the user enters the data. This data is saved in another table 'Summary' with the Columns column1 through column7.

on the 3rd page I need to show a report of 'Summary' table.

How do I dynamically replace column1 through column7 names with that of 'Column_Nm' on the report?

Any help/suggestions would be appreciated.

 


BDC Column with Ability to Select Multiple Values

  

Use Case:

We are creating a storage location for technical product articles. These will be SharePoint publishing pages. Each page will have metadata assigned to it to make it searchable by properties. The possible values for one of the columns (Part Number) could potentially be sourced by our ERP system. I'd like to do this to eliminate the possibility of free-text entry errors, but there are probably over 10,000 parts so a drop-down list isn't feasible.

 

Ideal Situation:

The end user enters the part number and clicks a button to verify it against a BDC entry from our ERP system. If they weren't sure on the part number they needed, they could do a lookup from that metadata entry screen. They'd need to have the option to add multiple part numbers as one technical product article could reference multiple part numbers.

 

Question:

Is BDC an option for all of this or am I looking at a custom metadata solution? I thought I heard along the way that BDC only supported one value choice, but I couldn't find a verification for that in the forums.

 

Thanks.


Use BDC data in list as multi-select column

  
I have a document library that uses values from another system for its metadata.  Right now, we copy the values from the primary system into SharePoint so users can choose them.  I want to find a way to use the BDC connection that I have set up to automatically pull those values.  The problem is that the current metadata is set to multi-select.  So, I have a file that is in the library and it can be used for multiple clients - clients is a column in my library and users can select many entries.  When I set up a column to pull BDC data, it only allows single entry.  Does anyone have any ideas?

DataGridView>Edit Columns> Column Read Only property is unwilling to change

  
Hello, I am facing the following mystery: When changing the read only property of a column to false and reopening the "edit columns" window, it mysteriously turns back to true. Even when closing the designer and changing it in the designer code, the resulting execution does not allow edit, as well as when re-opening the designer you see true again.             this.numberDataGridViewTextBoxColumn1.DataPropertyName = "Number";             this.numberDataGridViewTextBoxColumn1.HeaderText = "Number";             this.numberDataGridViewTextBoxColumn1.Name = "numberDataGridViewTextBoxColumn1";             this.numberDataGridViewTextBoxColumn1.ReadOnly = true;//False is required We thought it might be related to data binding. rebinding the grid did not help as well. The is no other place in the code where it changes. Please advice, Thanks
