Update A Table By Copying A Column From Another Table

bytes.com

I need to update a table by copying a column from another table (having the same structure, but on another database), from the record having the same primary key. 1 - What is the correct query? 2 - I tried copying them record by record, but the datatype is ntext, (it displays <long text> in the result pane), and trying to update it results in the following error message: The text, ntext, and image data types are invalid in this subquery or aggregate expression. I tried variations of the following: UPDATE TABLE SET column0 = ( SELECTcolumn0 FROManotherDB.dbo.TABLE WHEREanotherDB.dbo.TABLE.column1 = column1 ) WHEREanotherDB.dbo.TABLE.column1 = column1

Copy Table Column To Another Table Column If Cells Are Identical www.excelforum.com

I have two Tables, Table1 and Table2, in a single Excel spreadsheet. Table1 is our master log, and Table2 contains only Provider Names, Contact Names, Phone Numbers, and Email Addresses. I need to compare column K from Table1 with column AT from Table2. Whenever Excel finds a perfect match, I need Excel to copy AW:AY to AB:AD. For each value in column AT, there will be several identical matches in column K. I have tried to implement vlookup() and index(match()), but cannot figure either one of them. Table1 is almost 1500 rows long, while Table2 is not quite 80.

I want to have a box on my main form that allows me to update the [Status] [Status Comment][Status Date/Time] in Table A and it then those same columns be copied to Table B sitting the [Record ID] field.

Let me know if anyone has any ideas... I am fairly novice when it comes to programming.

Copy Table With Autoincrement phpbuilder.com

I have tried a lot to copy a table with php, but I can't: I tried first: CREATE TABLE copy SELECT * FROM table but it doesn't copy autoincrement or primary key. Deleting the autoincrement column, and then assigning it, does however makes an auto_increment column, but the values doesn't correspond with the original, because some posts where deleted there, and then the auto_increment values are higher. Then I tried to assign those two values later, by first truncating. CREATE TABLE copy SELECT * FROM table"; $sql2="TRUNCATE TABLE copy"; $sql3="INSERT INTO copy SELECT * FROM table"; $sql4="ALTER TABLE copy ADD PRIMARY KEY (id)"; $sql5="ALTER TABLE copy CHANGE `id` `id` INT( 11 ) NOT NULL PRIMARY KEY AUTO_INCREMENT"; $sql6="ALTER TABLE copy AUTO_INCREMENT=$maxid but that doesn't work either. Isn't there a simple way to copy a table including the primary key and the autoincrement with php?

SSIS DYnamic Temp Tables social.msdn.microsoft.com

Hi, I have a database with serveral tables, for example 'customer', I want to update this table with a SSIS package. However, to ensure we don't have issues if the update fails then I've put in an intermediate stage Using an Execute SQL Task I create temporary tables, for example 'customer_tmp'. Data is then imported into these tables. When all the data is imported successfully the original tables are dropped and the temporary tables are renamed, removing the '_tmp' This works fine and I'm happy with it. However, if someone adds a column to one of the tables in SQL server it is lost on the next upload. Similarly I have to hard code creating the indexes into the package as well. Does anyone know how I could copy the original�table definitions and create the temporary tables dynamically. So that any new columns would be picked up? And indeed is it possible to copy the indexes from one table to another before the drop and rename trick? Thanks in advance. Iain

MSSQL Server 7.0: How To Update A Column In One Table With Values From Another Table forums.databasejournal.com

This may be simple but I'm stumped. I have 2 tables- tableA and tableB. Each table has basically the same columns and rows with some variations. The common keys of both tables are employee ID. There are more employees listed in tableA than there are in tableB. The phone numbers in tableA are incorrect, but they are correct in tableB. How can I update tableA to have tableB's phone numbers wherever the employee ID field is the same for both tables? I've been playing around with an update statement, and select statements, but I can't figure out the syntax to update one column using values from another table without appending or overwriting all of the other columns in tableA. I need to keep ALL values in tableA the same except for the phone number column. Your help is GREATLY appreciated.

Selecting A Certain Range That Changes www.ozgrid.com

I have two tables in two different worksheets. In the first table, rows get deleted if the value in column 'S' (the first row to the right of the table) is not '1', and columns get deleted if the value in row '2' (third row above the table) is not '1'. In the second table, the number of columns stays always the same but rows get deleted if the value in column 'N' (first column to the right of the table) is not '1'. After the rows and columns are deleted the tables get pasted in a ppt presentation. Now the problem: I am a beginner in VBA and up til now I am only able to define a certain Range, e.g. ("A5:M17"), to be copied and pasted into ppt. But since the tables will sometimes be bigger than other times depending if rows/columns are deleted, I would rather define a dynamic Range. The top left cell of both tabels to be copied is always 'A5' but the bottom right cell changes.

How To Convert Null To Currency Or Numeric www.sqlteam.com

Greetings - I have a problem that I am unable to fix. I am migrating data from one ERP system to another ERP system. I created a table in SQL via DTS by converting an excel file into an SQL Table. The table has a column 'currentcost'. Most items in the table have a value in this column. However, some items have <null> in this column. I am updating another SQL table with currentcost that is in this column. However, my table being updated requires a value in its corresponding currentcost table. Therefore, my update statement terminates due to the source table having <null> values. I tried an update statement to convert <null> into a '0' It was 'update Source_New_ItemMaster set currentcost = '0' where currentcost = <null> This obviously didn't work. How can a change a <null> value in an SQL table to '0' (zero)?

I am using a multi-statement table-valued function to assemble data from several tables and views for a report.� To do this, I INSERT data into the first few columns and then use UPDATEs to put data additional data into each row.� Each UPDATE uses a WHERE criteria that identifies a unique row, based on the value of the first few columns.� � The problem I'm having is that the UPDATEs are taking forever to execute.� I believe the reason is that the temporary table that's created for the function is not indexed, so each row update requires a complete search of several columns. � In other situations I've been able to define one column as a primary key for the temporary table, but in this situation the primary key would have to consist of four columns, which doesn't seem to be allowed in the table definition for the function. � Is there any way to create indexes for the temporary tables that are created for multistatement table-valued functions?� I think that would improve the UPDATE performance dramatically. � Thanks, Lee Silverman JackRabbit Sports

Make TIMESTAMP Column Update Even Though I Didn't Change Anything? stackoverflow.com

The table also has a lot of other columns.I have a "change classified" section on my page.When users change their classifieds,I want the time stamp to update its time stamp.And it does,but sometimes you don't change a classified at all,you just want it to be "renewed".How can I make my Time Stamp column update even though nothing has been updated? Ie: UPDATE table SET text='hello' WHERE table.id='id_here'; In the above example, if the column "text" was already hello,nothing would happen here.The Time stamp wouldn't update.

Multiple Databases Schemas To Update Performance? stackoverflow.com

I have thousands of databases schema to update (add a column, update some rows and add 3 rows in 2 different tables). I have 2 different approaches to do so: 1) Put the name of each schema before table names # database A01be91a86 UPDATE A01be91a86.ACTION set CODE_QUALIFICATION.... ALTER table A01e02a697.IMPRESSION add column NAME..... # database blabla # thousand databases # database zfc982251d UPDATE zfc982251d.ACTION set CODE_QUALIFICATION.... ALTER table zfc982251d.IMPRESSION add column NAME..... 2) connect to the database schema before each update # database A01be91a86 connect A01be91a86 UPDATE ACTION set CODE_QUALIFICATION.... ALTER table IMPRESSION add column NAME..... # database blabla # thousand databases # database zfc982251d connect zfc982251d UPDATE ACTION set CODE_QUALIFICATION.... ALTER table IMPRESSION add column NAME..... The goal is to limit the time the whole script will take to execute What is the best approach? The first one or the second one? Or maybe a third one I didn't think of.

Problems When Copying Table From Excel To Word www.xtremevbtalk.com

How To UPDATE A Variable Number Of Columns social.msdn.microsoft.com

� Hi, I need to update a number of columns in a number of tables - I just don't know how many. In this case, I am updating all varchar fields and nvarchar fields to be converted to lower case. The problem is that the table structure is amended over time as columns are added programmatically, so I do not know which tables have which columns and if so which of them are varchars. � I can get a table of which fields I need to update using: � SELECT TABLE_NAME, COLUMN_NAME, ORDINAL_POSITION, DATA_TYPE INTO tblTempLCase FROM information_schema.columns WHERE DATA_TYPE LIKE '%varchar' and I can do the update with UPDATE tblxxx SET column = LOWER(column) � But what I don't know is how to step through my temporary table and do the updates. I can do it in ASP.NET, but that involves pushing commands and data between ASP and SQL, and will be too slow. How do I do it in SQL? � Thanks, � Dave Stephens

Compare Data And Add To Table www.dbforums.com

Hi all, Newbie here. I was wondering if any of you gurus could answer a question for me. Here is what I need to do (and I stress need): I have 2 tables. Table A has 3 columns, column 1 is unique customer numbers, column 2 is ticket numbers, column 3 is empty records. Table B has 2 columns, column 1 is unique customer numbers (same numbers, although not the same order as Table A) , column 2 is invoice numbers. I need to compare Table A where records in column 1 match records in column 1 in Table B. Where the records do match, I need to copy the records from Table B, column 2 to Table A column 3. Can anyone here help me with this, please? It would really get me out of a jam with this, since it is the last step I have to take to finally get this new app rolled out. Thanks a lot. Mark

How To Copy A Column From One Table And Insert It Into Another Table In The Same Db www.access-programmers.co.uk

How to copy a column from one table and insert it into another table in the same database Hi, All, I have two tables (old and new) sitting in the same database. The new table is the result of 'data cleansing' done by an external company. In the process (export and import via excel) two memo type colums in the table were truncated in excel. To make the new table usable, I must therefore now copy/insert the two memo columns from the old table into the new table. Both tables are already Access tables and sit in the same database. Both tables, of course, have the same number of rows. I tried to high-light one column in the old table, clicked copy, then high-lighted a blank column in the target table, then clicked Paste, but got error msg: "This text is too long for this field. Try copying a shorter text", as if I had wanted to copy the whole column into one cell rather than one column into another column of equal length. What is the best way to proceed? Thanks for your help. Adrian
