Insert Document in MongoDB's Collection

We can use insert() or save() methods to insert document(data) in  collection MongoDB.
Syntax                                                                                                               
Basic syntax of insert() command is as follows:


>db.COLLECTION_NAME.insert(document)


Example


>db.mycol.insert({
   _id: ObjectId(7df78ad8902c),
   title: 'MongoDB Overview',
   description: 'MongoDB is no sql database',
   by: 'Codefari',
   url: 'http://www.codefari.com',
   tags: ['mongodb', 'database', 'NoSQL'],

})


mycol is collection name, MongoDB will create collection if doesn't exist in the database then insert document into it. to know how to create collection click here.
if we did not specify the _id parameter, MongoDB assign a unique Object_Id for this document. _id is 12 bytes hexadecimal number unique for every document in a collection. 12 bytes are divided as follows:


_id: ObjectId(4 bytes timestamp, 3 bytes machine id, 2 bytes process id, 3 bytes incrementer)


If we want to insert multiple documents in single query, then we will be pass an array of document in insert() command.

Example


>db.post.insert([
{
   title: 'MongoDB Overview',
   description: 'MongoDB is no sql database',
   by: 'Codefari',
   url: 'http://www.codefari.com',
   tags: ['mongodb', 'database', 'NoSQL'],
   likes: 100
},
{
   title: 'NoSQL Database',
   description: 'NoSQL database doesn't have tables',
   by: 'Codefari',
   url: 'http://www.codefari.com',
   tags: ['mongodb', 'database', 'NoSQL'],
   likes: 20,
   comments: [  
                      {
         user:'user1',
         message: 'My first comment',
         dateCreated: new Date(2013,11,10,2,35),
         like: 0
      }
   ]
}
])



we can use  this way also to insert the document use db.post.save(document). Save () method will work same as insert() method when we did not specify_id in the document. When we have specify _id then it will replace whole data of document containing _id as specified in save() method.

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
BEGIN DECLARE@ResultTABLE ( IDINT, NAMEVARCHAR(50), [ADDRESS]VARCHAR(255) ) INSERTINTO@Result EXECusp_proc1@Name='codefari' END
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.
SELECTDISTINCTo.name FROMsyscommentss INNERJOINsysobjectsoONs.id=o.id

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

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…
