For help, click:





The reason is you don’t have permission to create database or you did not access to the SQL Server Database Engine as a system administrator.

To resolve this scenario you have to permission for the particular user access from login to admin of SQL Server contact your SQL Admin.

Sometimes scenario also comes when you login with windows authentication in your system the reason may be as below... 
  1. All logins that are members of the sysadmin fixed server role have been removed by mistake. 
  2. All Windows Groups that are members of the sysadmin fixed server role have been removed by mistake. 
  3. The logins that are members of the sysadmin fixed server role are for individuals who have left the company or who are not available. 
  4. The sa account is disabled or no one knows the password.
To resolve this problem follow step by step instruction

  1. Note: If your server is not already registered then right click Local Server Groups-> Point to Task -> then click Register Local Server. 
  2. In the registered area, right click on your server ->then c lick SQL Server Configuration Manager.

  2. In SQL Server Configuration Manager click on SQL Server Services at left panel, in the right panel you will find all instance of SQL Server, find your instance , The default instance of SQL Server includes (MSSQLSERVER) like Sql Server(MSSQLSERVER)
  3. Right-click the instance of SQL Server, and then click Properties. 
  4. Click on startup parameter box, type -m and then click Add (That's a dash then lower case letter m.). 
  5. Click OK, and after the message to restart, right-click your server name, and then click Restart.

6.  After SQL Server has restarted your server will be in single-user mode. Make sure that that SQL Server Agent is not running. If started, it will take your only connection.

Query to find stored procedures by nested stored procedure name

Problem: Suppose we have a stored procedure which has been used in several stored procedure, I mean stored procedure usp_proc1 is nested in many stored procedures like below
So I want to find all those queries who containing usp_proc1
Solution: There is a lot of solutions, I'm giving some of them below. If you want to get the only name of the stored procedures then use the following query. Using join query on system tables syscomments and sysobjects we can get the stored procedures name which containing the particular table, nested procs or any other string. FROMsyscommentss

Check for changes to an SQL Server table?

Problem: Suppose your team is working on the under-development project so it might be possible continuous work on the database and perform changes in Table, Stored procedure as per requirement, and daily you have to update the testing server database as per changes are done in developing server database then how it is possible to trace those changes. There are a lot of solutions for this problem which is listed below Solution 1: For SQL Server 2000, 2005 and above use the CHECKSUM command SELECTCHECKSUM_AGG(BINARY_CHECKSUM(*))FROMYour_Table_NameWITH (NOLOCK); That will return the same number each time its run as long as the table contents haven't changed. Unfortunately CHECKSUM does not work always properly to detect changes. It is only a primitive checksum and no CRC calculation. Therefore you can't use it to detect all changes, e. g. symmetrical changes result in the same CHECKSUM! Solution 2: 1.Run the following query. Before executing query replace DB_Name with your database name…

Merge and Merge join transformation in SSIS

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…
