SELECT, INSERT, DELETE and UPDATE Statements in SQL Server

SELECT 
Select statement use to retrieve data from table, the result is store in result table called Result-Set.
Syntax:
SELECT <column's name> FROM <Table Name>
Example:
IF OBJECT_ID('dbo.Employee', 'U') IS NOT NULL
       DROP TABLE Employee
CREATE TABLE Employee
(
       ID INT IDENTITY(1,1),
       FNAME VARCHAR(50),
       LNAME VARCHAR(50),
       ADDRESS VARCHAR(1000),
       CREATEDDATE DATETIME
)
INSERT INTO Employee (FNAME,LNAME,ADDRESS,CREATEDDATE) VALUES('DILIP','SINGH','DELHI',GETDATE())
INSERT INTO Employee (FNAME,LNAME,ADDRESS,CREATEDDATE) VALUES('VIPUL','BHATT','NOIDA',GETDATE())
INSERT INTO Employee (FNAME,LNAME,ADDRESS,CREATEDDATE) VALUES('RAJ','SINGH','BOKARO',GETDATE())
First run above code, it will create table "Employee" and also will insert  three records in table.
Select Statement
SELECT * FROM Employee
Above query will return all the columns in result-set.
Result







Select statement with column name
SELECT FNAME,LNAME,ADDRESS FROM Employee
It will return column 'FNAME','LNAME','ADDRESS' in result-set.

Result







INSERT
Insert statement use for insert new records into table.
Syntax:
INSERT INTO <table name> VALUES <values>
Example:
IF OBJECT_ID('dbo.Employee', 'U') IS NOT NULL
       DROP TABLE Employee
CREATE TABLE Employee
(
       ID INT IDENTITY(1,1),
       FNAME VARCHAR(50),
       LNAME VARCHAR(50),
       ADDRESS VARCHAR(1000),
       CREATEDDATE DATETIME
)
Run above query then select statement as bellow.
SELECT * FROM Employee
You will find no records
Insert Statements
INSERT INTO Employee (FNAME,LNAME,ADDRESS,CREATEDDATE) VALUES('DILIP','SINGH','DELHI',GETDATE())
INSERT INTO Employee (FNAME,LNAME,ADDRESS,CREATEDDATE) VALUES('VIPUL','BHATT','NOIDA',GETDATE())
INSERT INTO Employee (FNAME,LNAME,ADDRESS,CREATEDDATE) VALUES('RAJ','SINGH','BOKARO',GETDATE())
Again run select statement.
SELECT * FROM Employee
Result







DELETE
Delete statement use to delete records from table.
Syntax:
DELETE FROM <table name> WHERE <condition>
Example:
IF OBJECT_ID('dbo.Employee', 'U') IS NOT NULL
       DROP TABLE Employee
CREATE TABLE Employee
(
       ID INT IDENTITY(1,1),
       FNAME VARCHAR(50),
       LNAME VARCHAR(50),
       ADDRESS VARCHAR(1000),
       CREATEDDATE DATETIME
)
INSERT INTO Employee (FNAME,LNAME,ADDRESS,CREATEDDATE) VALUES('DILIP','SINGH','DELHI',GETDATE())
INSERT INTO Employee (FNAME,LNAME,ADDRESS,CREATEDDATE) VALUES('VIPUL','BHATT','NOIDA',GETDATE())
INSERT INTO Employee (FNAME,LNAME,ADDRESS,CREATEDDATE) VALUES('RAJ','SINGH','BOKARO',GETDATE())
Run above query then select statement

SELECT * FROM Employee
 Result







Delete Statement
DELETE FROM Employee
Note: this query will delete all records of table

Delete records with condition, where clause use for condition
DELETE FROM Employee WHERE FNAME='DILIP'
Now run select statement
SELECT * FROM Employee
Result







Above result set show, the row which FNAME is DILIP has been deleted from table.

UPDATE
Update statement use to update particular column record in table.
Syntax:
UPDATE <table name> SET <column name> WHERE <condition>
Example:
IF OBJECT_ID('dbo.Employee', 'U') IS NOT NULL
       DROP TABLE Employee
CREATE TABLE Employee
(
       ID INT IDENTITY(1,1),
       FNAME VARCHAR(50),
       LNAME VARCHAR(50),
       ADDRESS VARCHAR(1000),
       CREATEDDATE DATETIME
)
INSERT INTO Employee (FNAME,LNAME,ADDRESS,CREATEDDATE)
 VALUES('DILIP','SINGH','DELHI',GETDATE())
INSERT INTO Employee (FNAME,LNAME,ADDRESS,CREATEDDATE) VALUES('VIPUL','BHATT','NOIDA',GETDATE())
INSERT INTO Employee (FNAME,LNAME,ADDRESS,CREATEDDATE) VALUES('RAJ','SINGH','BOKARO',GETDATE())
Run above query then select statement 

Result







Update Statement
UPDATE Employee SET ADDRESS='GORAKHPUR' 
It will update ADDRESS column with 'GORKHPUR' of all table row.
Run select statement
SELECT * FROM Employee
Result







Update Statement with  condition
UPDATE Employee SET ADDRESS='GORAKHPUR' WHERE FNAME='DILIP'
run select statement
SELECT * FROM Employee
Result

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…
