Update a table using JOIN in SQL Server

Suppose we have a table INVENTORY (books data) and another table PUBLISHER. We need update daily INVENTORY table due to price fluctuation by PUBLISHER. We will use bulk update to update the INVENTORY table. See the following query.

First, run the following script it will create two temp tables INVENTORY and PUBLISHER with some data latter we will run the bulk update query.


CREATE TABLE #INVENTORY
(
  ID BIGINT IDENTITY(1,1) PRIMARY KEY
  ,ISBN VARCHAR(13)
  ,TITLE VARCHAR(400)
  ,AUTHOR VARCHAR(400)
  ,PRICE DECIMAL(18,2)
  ,CREATED_DATE DATETIME
  ,UPDATED_DATE DATETIME
)

CREATE TABLE #PUBLISHER
(
  ID BIGINT IDENTITY(1,1) PRIMARY KEY
  ,ISBN VARCHAR(13)
  ,TITLE VARCHAR(400)
  ,AUTHOR VARCHAR(400)
  ,PRICE DECIMAL(18,2)
  ,PUBLISHER VARCHAR(200)
  ,CREATED_DATE DATETIME
  ,UPDATED_DATE DATETIME
)

INSERT INTO #INVENTORY(ISBN,TITLE,AUTHOR,PRICE,CREATED_DATE)
SELECT '9990987654321','INFERNO','DOWN BROWN',90.00,GETDATE()
UNION ALL
SELECT '9990987654322','MONGODB TUTORIALS','DILIP',60.00,GETDATE()
UNION ALL
SELECT '9990987654323','SQL SERVER','KEVIN',45.00,GETDATE()
UNION ALL
SELECT '9990987654324','XYZ','ABC',12.00,GETDATE()

INSERT INTO #PUBLISHER(ISBN,TITLE,AUTHOR,PRICE,CREATED_DATE)
SELECT '9990987654321','INFERNO','DOWN BROWN',85.00,GETDATE()
UNION ALL
SELECT '9990987654322','MONGODB TUTORIALS','DILIP',65.00,GETDATE()
UNION ALL
SELECT '9990987654324','XYZ','ABC',16.00,GETDATE()

When you will run the select query on INVENTORY and PUBLISHER table then realize that price differences. Now we have to update INVENTORY table from PUBLISHER table. See following query.


UPDATE I
SET PRICE = P.PRICE
FROM #INVENTORY I
JOIN #PUBLISHER AS P
ON I.ISBN=P.ISBN

SELECT * FROM #INVENTORY
DROP TABLE #INVENTORY
DROP TABLE #PUBLISHER

Result
ID    ISBN          TITLE              AUTHOR        PRICE    CREATED_DATE            UPDATED_DATE
----- ------------- ------------------ ------------- -------- ----------------------- -------------
1     9990987654321 INFERNO            DOWN BROWN    85.00    2016-07-20 16:55:30.990 NULL
2     9990987654322 MONGODB TUTORIALS  DILIP         65.00    2016-07-20 16:55:30.990 NULL
3     9990987654323 SQL SERVER         KEVIN         45.00    2016-07-20 16:55:30.990 NULL

4     9990987654324 XYZ                ABC           16.00    2016-07-20 16:55:30.990  NULL

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 …

Remove special character from string in MongoDB

Problem: Suppose wehave a collection and one field is type string contains some special character (like !@#$%) and we don’t want these special character.
Solution: We can easily remove the special character from field using script “replace(/[^a-zA-Z 0-9 ]/g, '')” in our query.  How can we remove special character from string using this script please see following example.
Example: Suppose we have a collection “EduSurvey “where we are collecting information from institutions.

{Name:"JB institute”, About:"This is good one collage for MBA", Information:"This $%%institute ##has good faculty etc$$"}
{Name:"MK institute”, About:"This is good one collage for MCA", Information:"This$$%# is the dummy text12"}
{Name:"MG institute”, About:"This is good one collage for B,Tech", Information:"This# institute@ has&* good infrastructure"}

Did you notice Information fields contains some special character so we…
