Dynamic PIVOT query in SQL Server

Problem: Suppose we have a table TMP where we keep the data of Representatives like RepName, NumberOfLead, Date etc. as below
 












Now we have to show data like below.
  





Answer: Very easy we can use PIVOT function but it may create a problem when we add new Representative. We have to change our Procedure  when a new representative will be add. Don't worry one solution is here we can use PIVOT in dynamic query like below.
CREATE TABLE #TMP
(
       REPNAME VARCHAR(100),
       NUMBEROFLEAD INT,
       DATE DATETIME
)

INSERT INTO #TMP
SELECT 'DILIP',2,'11/11/2015'
UNION ALL
SELECT 'ANIL',4,'11/11/2015'
UNION ALL
SELECT 'PARAM',7,'11/11/2015'
UNION ALL
SELECT 'DILIP',6,'11/12/2015'
UNION ALL
SELECT 'ANIL',3,'11/12/2015'
UNION ALL
SELECT 'PARAM',5,'11/12/2015'

SELECT * FROM #TMP
DECLARE @COLS AS NVARCHAR(MAX),
    @QUERY  AS NVARCHAR(MAX);

SET @COLS = STUFF((SELECT DISTINCT ',' + QUOTENAME(TMP.REPNAME)
            FROM #TMP TMP
            FOR XML PATH(''), TYPE
            ).value('.', 'NVARCHAR(MAX)')
        ,1,1,'')

SET @QUERY = 'SELECT DATE, ' + @COLS + ' FROM
            (
                SELECT REPNAME
                    , NUMBEROFLEAD
                    , DATE
                FROM #TMP
           ) X
            PIVOT
            (
                 MAX(NUMBEROFLEAD)
                FOR REPNAME IN (' + @COLS + ')
            ) P '


EXECUTE(@QUERY)

DROP TABLE #TMP

This query will return result as above given pic..
Now you can try this with adding new representative as below

SELECT 'MANISH',5,'11/12/2015'

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 …
