COnfigurations stored in SQL Server ...

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
I have a couple of connections in my package which use configs stored in SQL Server. I am finding that when I open the package in BIDS, the configuration value in the SQL Server table is updated with the information pertaining to the connection in the package. Sounds bizzarre, but I have watched this happen several times. Am I hallucinating or is this intended behavior? I have checked and there is no replication or any process that updates the config tables. Appreciate the feedback.Jagannathan Santhanam

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.

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

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 =

Sending Email by exeucting a stored proc on SQL Server that references CLR

Hi Guys, I want to modify the data type of the @body variable in the stored procedure that sends an email. The stored procedure is as follows:   CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[spSendMail4]<br/> @recipients [nvarchar](4000),<br/> @cc [nvarchar](4000),<br/> @subject [nvarchar](4000),<br/> @from [nvarchar](4000), @body [nvarchar](4000), @attachment [nvarchar](4000)<br/> WITH EXECUTE AS CALLER<br/> AS <br/> EXTERNAL NAME [SMTPCLR].[StoredProcedure].[spSendMail]<br/> GO   I want to change the @body variable to data type: text. The reason for this, is because I am sending an HTML email whose content (characters) exceed 8000. Basically the new stored procedure should looks like below:   CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[spSendMail4] @recipients [nvarchar](4000), @cc [nvarchar](4000), @subject [nvarchar](4000), @from [nvarchar](4000), @body text, @attachment [nvarchar](4000) WITH EXECUTE AS CALLER AS EXTERNAL NAME [SMTPCLR].[StoredProcedure].[spSendMail] GO   If attempt to make this change, I get the below error:   CREATE PROCEDURE for "spSendMail" failed because T-SQL and CLR types for parameter "@body" do not match.   Understandably so, because from the article http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms131092%28SQL.100%29.aspx CLR data type (.NET Framework) is not compa

SQL Server 2005 Express Edition - GUI to set permissions on stored procedures

Hi there, I have SQL Serve 2005 Express Edition (Build 2600: Service Pack 3) installed; I also have the Management Console installed. My problem is that I cannot set execute permission, or any other type of permissions on my stored procedures through the GUI, as the Property menu item is missing from the right click menu. I read somewhere that this happens when you have SP1, but as I stated above I have got SP3 installed... Any help?   Regards, D.

SQL Server 2005 Stored Procedures

  I had written a stored proc. to get date & time in Std. format  dd/mm/yy hh:mm:ss AM/PM. I wanted that  when no value is given to the stored procedure it should produce current date & time in the above std. format & when some date is given , it should display that date in above std. format. The stored proc. is as follows: set  ANSI_NULLS ON set  QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON GO ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[GETDATETIME] @DATE DATETIME = NULL, @NEWDATE VARCHAR(MAX) OUTPUT AS BEGIN --DECLARE @TEMPDATE DATETIME; --SET @TEMPDATE=NULL; --SET @TEMPDATE=; IF (@DATE IS NULL) BEGIN SET @DATE=GETDATE(); SET @DATE=CONVERT(DATETIME,CONVERT(VARCHAR(MAX),@DATE,3)+ ' ' + CONVERT(VARCHAR(MAX),@DATE,24)) ; SET @NEWDATE = convert(varchar(MAX),@DATE, 103)+' ' + CONVERT(VARCHAR(MAX),SUBSTRING(CONVERT(varchar(MAX),@DATE,22),10,12)); GOTO L1; END SET @DATE=CONVERT(DATETIME,CONVERT(VARCHAR(MAX),@DATE,3)+ ' ' + CONVERT(VARCHAR(MAX),@DATE,24)) ; SET @NEWDATE = convert(varchar(MAX),@DATE, 103)+' ' + CONVERT(VARCHAR(MAX),SUBSTRING(CONVERT(varchar(MAX),@DATE,22),10,12)); -- Declare the return variable here --DECLARE @Result int -- Add the T-SQL statements to compute the return value here --SELECT @Result = @p1 -- Return the result of the function --SET @NEWDATE2=CONVERT(VARCHAR(MAX),@NEWDATE); L1: RETURN CONVERT(VARCHAR(MAX),@N

what is stored the guidlocal column in MSmerge_genhistory table (MS SQL Server 2000)?

In MSmerge_genhistory table there is a column called guidlocal. I noticed that for a large subset of the records on both the publisher and the subscriber, the value in this column is '00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000'. What does it mean? BOL says that guidlocal is: "Local identifier of the changes identified by generation at the Subscriber." but I still can't make it out what does '00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000' mean?

Folders or folder like equivalent in SQL Server 2008 ? for packages & stored procedures ?

Hi,      Currently running SQL-Server 2000.  We have hundreds of stored procedures and DTS packages. We have so many it's becoming a serious challenge for names and such.  We were wondering if SQL Server 2008 has a way to 'nest' both the equivalent of DTS packages (SSIS) and stored procedures in something akin to 'folders'.  We know we have to upgrade one of these days but a version that would handle these would be much more attractive. Just getting this functionality would be worth whatever effort would be required to upgrade.   Thanks in advance for any help on this.

CLR stored procedures asssemblies working in sql server 2005 but giving issues over sql server 2008

Hi I developed CLR stored procedures assemblies using VS2005 and deployed in sql server 2005 are working fine. Currently we are migrating to sql server 2008. The same CLR assemblies are not working in 2008 version and raising following error. Here i created CLR assemblies in sql server 2008 using 'sa' user account which is having db_owner permission over 'mydatabase'. I am getting an error message like "A .NET Framework error occurred during execution of user-defined routine or aggregate". In sql logs showing messages like as -- Common language runtime (CLR) functionality initialized using CLR version v2.0.50727 from C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\. -- AppDomain 2 (mydatabase.dbo[runtime].1) created.   Please let me know what may be the cause for this type of issues. Is there any specific backward compatibility settings has to be done over sql server 2008 or sql server 2008 R2 while using 2005 CLR routines?   Thanks in advance.  

Stored procedures not found in Analysis Server

Hi, it seems that my AS2008R2 installation got corrupted and I don't find any way to repair it. AS doesn't "find" stored procedures. Nor stored procedures written by me, nor system stored procedures, nor Data Mining stored procedures. E.g., when I try to browse a Data Mining model I get the following error: Query (1, 6) The '[System].[Microsoft].[AnalysisServices].[System].[DataMining].[AssociationRules].[GetStatistics]' function does not exist. The problem started with my AS2008 installation. I unistalled, then re-installed. Then I upgraded to AS2008R2. Then I repaired the AS2008R2 installation. Nothing ! I don't want to reinstall the server. Please help ! Thanks          Teodoro Marinucci

How to play wmv file is stored in ftp server using MediaElement?

Hello, I have a ftp server to store wmv files (with username and password). MediaElement can play a local wmv file well, but when I change the uri to access a file in ftp server (ftp://abc.serveftp.net/Assets/sample.wmv) and media element cannot play this file, I try to use Window Media Player installed on my machine to open a wmv file manually and that's ok, I think it is possible for MediaElement can play wmv throught ftp. How can I do that? Thank you for your answer. string sourceFile = "ftp://abc.serveftp.net/Assets/sample.wmv"; mediaElement.Source = new Uri(sourceFile);
