TRY/CATCH and error handling in SQL server 2005/2008

SQL Server 2005 provide a strong set of tool to handle error or exception, in privious version it was not easy to handle exceptions.
We use TRY/CATCH in SQL Server same as populer languages, We write saperate logic and exception handling code.

Syntax:
BEGIN TRY
-- Your Code or query
END TRY
BEGIN CATCH
-- Handling code
END CATCH

We write our logic code within TRY bolck and exception code in CATCH block, if nay error occur in logic code it jumps to CATCH 

block, resume the execution and transaction is rollback.

Functions which is use in CATCH

1- ERROR_NUMBER() Returns error no othe error message.
2- ERROR_SEVERITY() returns the error severity regardless of how many times it is run.
3- ERROR_STATE() Returns the state number of error messages that cause the catch block.
4- ERROR_PROCEDURE() Return the Procedure Name.
5- ERROR_LINE() Return error line number.
6- ERROR_MESSAGE() return error description.

Note : If we are calling all above method out side from CATCH block it will return NULL..

Example


CREATE PROCEDURE dbo.usp_TRY_CATCH_TEST
AS
BEGIN
BEGIN TRY
   SELECT 1/0
END TRY
BEGIN CATCH
   SELECT ERROR_NUMBER() AS error_no
   ,ERROR_SEVERITY() AS error_severity
   ,ERROR_STATE() AS error_state
   ,ERROR_PROCEDURE() AS error_procedure
   ,ERROR_LINE() AS error_lineNo
   ,ERROR_MESSAGE() AS error_message
END CATCH
END

What is difference between UNION and UNION ALL in SQL Server

We use UNION and UNION ALL operator to combine multiple results set into one result set.
UNION operator is used to combining multiple results set into one result set but removes any duplicate rows. Basically, UNION is used to performing a DISTINCT operation across all columns in the result set. UNION operator has the extra overhead of removing duplicate rows and sorting result.
UNION ALL operator use to combine multiple results set into one result set but it does not remove any duplicate result. Actually, this does not remove duplicate rows so it is faster than the UNION operator. If you want to combine multiple results and without duplicate records then use UNION otherwise UNION ALL is better.
Following some rules for using UNION/UNION ALL operator
1.The number of the column should be the same in the query's when you want to combine them. 2.The column should be of the same data type. 3.ORDER BY clause can be applied to the overall result set not within each result set.
4.Column name of …

Add day to ISODate in MongoDB

We can use $add operator to add days in ISODate in mongodb, $add is the Arithmetic Aggregation Operator which adds number and date in mongodb.
Syntax:

{ $add: [ <expression1>, <expression2>, ... ] }

Note:  If one of the argument is date $add operator treats to other arguments as milliseconds to add to the date.
Example: Suppose we have a Test collection as below.

{"Title" : "Add day to ISODate in MongoBD","CreatedDate" : ISODate("2016-07-07T08:00:00.000Z")}

Query to add 2 days in CreatedDate

db.Test.aggregate([      { $project: { Title: 1, AddedDate: { $add: [ "$CreatedDate", 2*24*60*60000 ] } } }    ])

Result:

{ "_id" : ObjectId("579a1567ac1b3f3732483de0"), "Title" : "Add day to ISODate in MongoBD", "AddedDate" : ISODate("2016-07-09T08:00:00.000Z") }

Note: As mentioned in above note we have to convert days in millisecond because $add operator treat to other arg…

Merge and Merge join transformation in SSIS

MERGE TRANSFORMATION
Using Merge Transformation we can combine two sorted data-set into single data-set basically Merge Transformation used to combines rows from two sorted data flows into one sorted data flow. Following tasks you may perform using Merge Transformation: 1.Suppose we have a scenario like, we need to merge data from a database table and excel means we want to merge data from two different data sources. For such type of scenario, you can use Merge Transformation. 2.If we want to merge data from two same structured tables but exists two different servers. 3.Sometimes we get an error due to data in a row, after correcting errors in the data we can re-merge rows easily. See below explanations may help you to understand Merge Transformation: I do evaluate here, you already know about the data source, data conversion, data flow, task flow, control flow etc. Note:Before Merge transformation, we need to sort the data using Sort Transformation. After sorting data add data path to Merge…
