Fetch records using limit() and skip() method from MongoDB Collection

limit(): To fetch limited records from MongoDB collection we need to use limit() method. We need to pass number in limit() method as parameter, which number of documents that we want to display.
skip(): skip() method is responsible to skip number of documents, it accept number type argument.
The Limit() Method
The limit() Method is accepts one number type argument which is number of document that we want to display in MongoDB Collection data.
 SYNTAX: Below is given Basic syntax of limit() method is as follows


>db.COLLECTION_NAME.find().limit(NUMBER)


EXAMPLE: Consider the collection tesCol has the below given data


{ "_id" : ObjectId(5983548781331adf45ec5), "title":"MongoDB Overview"}
{ "_id" : ObjectId(5983548781331adf45ec6), "title":"NoSQL Overview"}
{ "_id" : ObjectId(5983548781331adf45ec7), "title":"Codefari query overview"}



Below given example will display only 2 documents while querying the document.


>db.tesCol.find({},{"title":1,_id:0}).limit(2)
{"title":"MongoDB Overview"}
{"title":"NoSQL Overview"}
> 


when we don't specify number argument in limit() method then it will show all documents from the collection.

MongoDB Skip() Method
Apart from limit() method there is one more method skip() which also accepts number type argument and used to skip number of documents.
SYNTAX: Basic syntax of skip() method is as follows


>db.COLLECTION_NAME.find().limit(NUMBER).skip(NUMBER)


EXAMPLE: Following example will only display only second document.


>db.tesCol.find({},{"title":1,_id:0}).limit(1).skip(1)
{"title":"NoSQL Overview"}
> 



Please note default value in skip() method is 0

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…

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 …
