$out operator in MongoDB

$out is responsible to write a specific collection taking documents returned by aggregation pipeline. We should keep $out at the last stage in the pipeline. $out operator give the facility to return result set of any size.


{ $out: "<output-collection>" }

When you use $out operator it create a new collection in current data base, It just like a view in SQL Server but it create as table. If you want to aggregate some document from collection and want to write in a new collection then you have to use $out operator in mongodb. $out operator create new collection if aggregation succeed if aggregation failed It will not create a collection.

$out operation replace the existing collection if already exists in current database, mean if you are performing aggregation using $out operation and collection already exist in database which is specified by $out, it replaces the existing collection with $out specify collection. If operation filed then no changes make in database. If pervious collection has any index it will not change when replace with new.

If there are not any unique field in $out collection then operation will be failed, you have to use _id including index in output collection.









Above collection (EMP) created for employee and the projects. Suppose we have to create a new collection where to summarize employee’s projects.
 Run the following query.

db.EMP.aggregate( [

               { $group : { _id : "$Name", Projects: { $push: "$Project" } } },

               { $out : "EmpProject" }

            ] ) 

It will create new collection in current database. New collection will create with name “EmpProject” look like below.

 { "_id" : "Pankaj", "Projects" : [ "Pro7" ] }

 { "_id" : "Vipul", "Projects" : [ "Pro3", "Pro4", "Pro5" ] }

 { "_id" : "Dilip", "Projects" : [ "Pro1", "Pro2", "Pro6" ] }

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
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. FROMsyscommentss

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

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…
