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 =

"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.  

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

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.

for example I need need to send the following array to the strored procedure:

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

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 the values from the Deleted virtual table to another Stored Procedure



I am wondering if something can be done.  I have a large database that I would like to implement change tracking on selected tables.  We've come up with a way to do it the least painful way we can, but I do not know if it will work.

I've created a trigger that will pass the table name to a stored procedure.  That stored procedure creates a Tracking table by appending the suffix 'Changes' to the past in table name.  But now how do I get the data from the Deleted table?

I can't do a SELECT INTO or INSERT INTO because the tables have timestamp fields and blobs.  I don't care if I do net get the data from those fields but I don't want to have to enter all the field names besides those two types.  I can make a stored procedure get the column names and types from a system table and dynamically build the SQL.  But I would prefer to do that in one place instead of each trigger.

Basically the problem is how do I get the data from the Deleted table to another stored procedure without explicitly naming all \the fields in the trigger.

If you don't understand what I mean then please ask, I will clarify with examples.



Passing a SSIS Variable with a string datatype to a Stored Procedure requiring a uniqueidentifier


I have a SSIS package that uses a SQL Server stored procedure as a data source. The parameter in the stored procedure is pulling data from a column with a uniqueidentifer (guid) data type. I created a package level variable in SSIS with a string datatype. SSIS variables do not offer a uniqueidentifier datatype.

I have the following text in the SQL Command text box:

exec dbo.spBillingReferenceSource
@BatchID = ? 

When I click the parameters button the mappings are @BatchID for the parameter (which is the exact name of the parameter in the stored procedure) and User::BatchID (the SSIS variable) 

When I run the stored procedure in preview mode in the SSIS dataflow, it returns an error message -- "No value given for one or more of the required parameters"

If I run the stored procedure by typing the value in the datasource box such as listed below, it works and delivers the proper records. I have even modified the stored procedure to convert the column to use varchar(36). However, it still returns the same error message. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can get this to work. 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.

Inserting rows via stored procedure and under certain conditions


I'm using Dynamic Data with Entity Framework in VS2010.

Let's say my table has these fields:

PersonID (FK)
LocationID (FK)

Hypothetical scenario (it's easier for me to explain this way, so just bear with me for now)... But let's say each row in the table represents "how many items were sold by such-and-such employee at such-and-such location," where location and person are foreign keys which are referencing other tables.  Basically, there should be no more than a ONE row which has a particular combination of Person and Location.  Makes sense?

So, when inserting new rows using my Dynamic Data app, the insert form displays editable fields for Person (dropdown), Location (dropdown), and Items Sold (textbox).  How do I prevent users from inserting another row into the table containing an already-existing combination of Person and Location?   How do I displaying useful feedback to them in the event that they DO attempt to do this?

I have several thoughts about this, but since I'm new to Dynamic Data, I'm not sure which way to go.  For example:

Option 1:  Use "cascading dropdowns" approach in the insert form and only pull in the "allowed" combinations of the two dropd

Creating A Stored Procedure Which Searches Team Names

This is where I thought about creating a stored procedure to carry out this task.

I looked online for ideas but I not found anything as yet.

If anyone done anything similar to my request please let me know.
