SQL Object Definition Keyword Search Stored Procedure

There are many times when you encounter a SQL database that has had a lot of fingers in it but not a lot of guidance for you to follow, that you need to find a given concept or word to find what objects you need to be looking at in a given situation. The stored procedure below will allow you to do that. It searches both parent and child objects definition for words that are like or equal to your search term and returns them in order of rank, and then in order of object creation using their object id.

SQL Object (Table, Stored Procedures, Functions, Views) Dependencies

I often get asked to help figure out a confusing and archaic SQL database structure as various developers over the years have added layer after layer of stored procedures, tables, views and functions and nobody in the present day actually knows what a lot of it is or does anymore and folks are paralyzed because they are afraid to make any kinds of changes. However, not all is lost! Using the sample below you can see how your stored procedures, tables, views and functions are connected to each other and what you will need to address and what you need to thoroughly test if you make any kind of changes. The format below is for SQL, but I am working on an update for MySQL, DB2 and Oracle as well so check back later for that.

USAGE:

select distinct [Table Name] = o.Name, [Found In] = sp.Name, sp.type
from sys.objects o inner join sys.sql_expression_dependencies sd on o.object_id = sd.referenced_id
inner join sys.objects sp on sd.referencing_id = sp.object_id
and sp.type in ('P','TR', 'FN', 'V', 'TF','IF')

-- where o.name = 'Your Table Name'
--where sp.Name = 'your stored procedure, function or trigger or other type'

--order set to sort by table, object type and object name
order by o.Name, sp.type,sp.name
-- change order to drill down from procedure, trigger or function name or type
--order by sp.name,o.Name, sp.type_desc

--Type Options

-- C CHECK_CONSTRAINT
--D DEFAULT_CONSTRAINT
--F FOREIGN_KEY_CONSTRAINT
--FN SQL_SCALAR_FUNCTION
--IF SQL_INLINE_TABLE_VALUED_FUNCTION
--IT INTERNAL_TABLE
--P SQL_STORED_PROCEDURE
--PK PRIMARY_KEY_CONSTRAINT
--R RULE
--S SYSTEM_TABLE
--SQ SERVICE_QUEUE
--TF SQL_TABLE_VALUED_FUNCTION
--TR SQL_TRIGGER
--U USER_TABLE
--UQ UNIQUE_CONSTRAINT
--V VIEW

Dynamic Predicate (WHERE clause) for a LINQ Query

I love LINQ! It really has been a godsend and anyone still using datatable.select seriously needs to learn it. One thing I didn’t like too much though was I was having to write each LINQ query out instead of being able to pass it off to a function as a parameter. I haven’t gotten all the way there yet but this was a start. The idea was when we have a source of data that we refer to often that we pass the predicate (WHERE statement) off to a function instead of having to rewrite the whole query each time. While this example uses a datatable, you can use it with any collection that can have LINQ written against it.

So how is it done? First we identify the single element type we need to use ( Of TRow As DataRow) and then identify the “source” we are using and tie the identifier to that source ((source As TypedTableBase(Of TRow)). Then we must specify the predicate, or the WHERE clause that is going to be passed (predicate As Func(Of TRow, Boolean)) which will either be returned as true or false. Then we identify how we want the returned information ordered (OrderByField As String). Our function will then return a EnumerableRowCollection(Of TRow), our collection of datarows that have met the conditions of our predicate(EnumerableRowCollection(Of TRow)). This is a basic example. Of course you must make sure your order field doesn’t contain nulls, or have handled that situation properly and make sure your column names (if you are using a strongly typed datasource never mind this, it will rename the columns for you) are standard.

What is left // TO DO is to accomplish this with a table join, which is what my next step will be. It won’t be hard. Hopefully this code helps you and I hope you all have a great Christmas!

Northwind Database For DB2

Well if I thought Oracle was a mess getting the Northwind database to I hadn’t seen anything yet. I don’t care for the user tools at all in IBM Data Studio. The mapping to get SSIS to push a copy of my SQL based Northwind database was all over the map. If you don’t know, Northwind is the training tool of choice for many developers, businesses and consultants.

So again, I am doing you a solid. Linked here is the SSIS package you can pick up and use to transfer your SQL based version of Northwind to DB2. I also included the DB2 ddl for the database for your reference. I haven’t found an easy way to do it from the Access version. Sorry folks.

A couple things. You will need to create the database on your DB2 instance like below. use your standard command prompt with admin privileges.

create database NORTHWIN using codeset UTF-8 territory en

You may notice I left off the D. Yes I did. DB2 prefers its databases to be 8 characters or less. So that is why

Get the DTSX package here.

Once you have it open in Notepad and edit these lines with your information:

DTS:ConnectionString=”Data Source=DESKTOP-P1TI349;Initial Catalog=Northwind;Provider=SQLOLEDB;Integrated Security=SSPI;Auto Translate=false;” />

DTS:ConnectionString=”Data Source=NORTHWIN;User ID=db2admin;Provider=IBMOLEDB.DB2COPY1;Persist Security Info=True;Location=DESKTOP-P1TI349:50000;Extended Properties=&quot;&quot;;”>

Find/Replace DB2COPY1 with the name of your instance.

Save the file and open in SSIS.

And then you should be good to go…. if you have changes in your SQL Northwind database that aren’t reflected here (it will prompt you) you will need to use SSIS to transfer the data. Be sure for your destination you choose the instance name of your DB2 instance. (Mine was DB2COPY1).

That’s about it. Have a good day….

Email Excel Spreadsheet as Email Body Issues

Hello all. I had a production manager wanting an excel spreadsheet mailed as the body of the email. As some of you know the code generated by excel to produce the email is pretty crazy. But as a result, it showed up fine in Outlook and Android but it did not show the gridlines on the spreadsheet. So this code is based on the excellent work by Ron DeBruin over at http://www.rondebruin.nl/win/s1/outlook/bmail3.htm . I did a replacement for the HTML Range in this manner and the grid lines did appear. And the manager was happy.

Sub Mail_Selection_Range_Outlook_Body()
‘For Tips see: http://www.rondebruin.nl/win/winmail/Outlook/tips.htm
‘Don’t forget to copy the function RangetoHTML in the module.

    Dim rng As Range
    Dim OutApp As Object

    On Error Resume Next
    ‘Only the visible cells in the selection
    Set rng = Selection.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible)

    ‘Set rng = Sheets(“YourSheet”).Range(“D4:D12”).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible)

Class to Simplify and Minimize Code for Stored Procedures and TSQL

First of all if you are using TSQL in your code you really need to get in a another line of work. It isn’t scalable, difficult to maintain and is generally a bad practice. But I know some of you still do it so I did include it. This class will allow you to in a few lines of code do your select, update, insert or delete statements in a very few lines of code. All that is required of the developer is to list the values in order (if you are using stored procedures) that are required. Also included is how to declare a new instance of a sqlparametercollection – which you aren’t suppose to be able to do. I ended up not needing it but included it just in case someone needs to do that someday. Also if you are using a strongly typed dataset there is a method included of how to do that. After the code is example of usage. Have a great day!

Get CPU Usage of a Process using C#

This was a fun assignment. I was asked to write a piece of code that when a particular process id was passed to it it would return its CPU usage. WMI is fun. Have a great night….

public static decimal GetUssage(string pid)
{
//get the process
ManagementObjectSearcher searcher = new ManagementObjectSearcher(“SELECT * FROM Win32_Process WHERE ProcessID = ” + pid);
decimal PercentProcessorTime = 0;
foreach (ManagementObject queryObj in searcher.Get())
{
DateTime firstSample, secondSample;

//populate the process info
firstSample = DateTime.Now;
queryObj.Get();
//get cpu usage
ulong u_oldCPU = (ulong)queryObj.Properties[“UserModeTime”].Value
+ (ulong)queryObj.Properties[“KernelModeTime”].Value;
//sleep to create interval
System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(1000);
//refresh object
secondSample = DateTime.Now;
queryObj.Get();
//get new usage
ulong u_newCPU = (ulong)queryObj.Properties[“UserModeTime”].Value
+ (ulong)queryObj.Properties[“KernelModeTime”].Value;

decimal msPassed = (decimal)(secondSample – firstSample).TotalMilliseconds;

//formula to get CPU ussage
if (u_newCPU > u_oldCPU)
PercentProcessorTime = (decimal)((u_newCPU – u_oldCPU)
/ (msPassed * 100 * Environment.ProcessorCount));

Console.WriteLine(“processor time ” + PercentProcessorTime);
}
return PercentProcessorTime;
}
