AVG() function in SQL Server

AVG function returns average of the values of column in group.

AVG() Syntax
SELECT AVG(<column_name>) FROM <table_name>

Example:  Suppose we have a table blog as below. Here we have to fetch AVG() of PageViewed and SessionInMin column for different group like title , date etc..

       ID INT IDENTITY(1,1),
       Title VARCHAR(100),
       PageViewed INT,
       SessionInMin DECIMAL(18,2),
       vDate DATETIME

INSERT INTO #BLOG (Title,PageViewed,SessionInMin,vDate)
SELECT 'SQL Server overview',20,2.5,'2015/05/05'
SELECT 'MongoDB Overview',10,4.5,'2015/05/05'
SELECT 'SSIS Tutorial',12,15.5,'2015/05/05'
SELECT 'MongoDB Overview',15,6.5,'2015/05/06'
SELECT 'SSIS Tutorial',30,17.5,'2015/05/06'

SELECT AVG(PageViewed) PageViewed,AVG(SessionInMin) SessionInMin FROM #BLOG

Average of PageViewd and SessionInMin column without group
SELECT AVG(PageViewed) PageViewed,AVG(SessionInMin) SessionInMin FROM #BLOG

PageViewed  SessionInMin
----------- --------------
17          9.300000

Average of PageViewd and SessionInMin column with group of Title column
SELECT AVG(PageViewed) PageViewed,AVG(SessionInMin) SessionInMin,Title FROM #BLOG

PageViewed  SessionInMin     Title
----------- --------------- --------
12          5.500000         MongoDB Overview
20          2.500000         SQL Server overview
21          16.500000        SSIS Tutorial

Average of PageViewd and SessionInMin column with group of vDate column

SELECT AVG(PageViewed) PageViewed,AVG(SessionInMin) SessionInMin,vDate FROM #BLOG GROUP BY vDate

PageViewed  SessionInMin           vDate
----------- --------------------- -----------------------
14          7.500000               2015-05-05 00:00:00.000
22          12.000000              2015-05-06 00:00:00.000

Note:     1-  NULL value are ignored.
                2-  Column type should be int, decimal, float, bigint etc.

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 …

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…

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.

{ $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 ] } } }    ])


{ "_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…
