SQL Server - How to find all empty/have values tables

Many times our managers ask to find empty tables and have value tables report. It is time taken to find the tables manually. I am writing some query which may help you to find empty and have values table.
Following query help you to find all empty tables in database.

1 – See following query


SELECT IST.TABLE_NAME , MAX(SI.rows ) TOTAL_RECORDS
FROM sysindexes SIINFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES IST
WHERE IST.TABLE_NAME = OBJECT_NAME(SI.id)
      AND IST.TABLE_TYPE = 'BASE TABLE'
GROUP BY IST.TABLE_SCHEMAIST.TABLE_NAME
HAVING MAX(SI.rows)<=0

  
2- If you want to find all empty tables of particular “schema” then use following query.


SELECT IST.TABLE_NAME , MAX(SI.rows ) TOTAL_RECORDS
FROM sysindexes SIINFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES IST
WHERE IST.TABLE_NAME = OBJECT_NAME(SI.id)
      AND IST.TABLE_TYPE = 'BASE TABLE'
      AND IST.TABLE_SCHEMA='Schema_Name'
GROUP BY IST.TABLE_SCHEMAIST.TABLE_NAME
HAVING MAX(SI.rows)<=0


If you want to find those all tables that have values then use the following queries.
1 – Query to find all tables that have values.


SELECT IST.TABLE_NAME , MAX(SI.rows ) TOTAL_RECORDS
FROM sysindexes SIINFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES IST
WHERE IST.TABLE_NAME = OBJECT_NAME(SI.id)
      AND IST.TABLE_TYPE = 'BASE TABLE'
GROUP BY IST.TABLE_SCHEMAIST.TABLE_NAME
HAVING MAX(SI.rows)>0


2- If you want to find all tables that have values of particular “schema” then use following query.


SELECT IST.TABLE_NAME , MAX(SI.rows ) TOTAL_RECORDS
FROM sysindexes SIINFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES IST
WHERE IST.TABLE_NAME = OBJECT_NAME(SI.id)
      AND IST.TABLE_TYPE = 'BASE TABLE'
      AND IST.TABLE_SCHEMA = 'SCHEMA_NAME'
GROUP BY IST.TABLE_SCHEMAIST.TABLE_NAME
HAVING MAX(SI.rows)>0


Another query may also help you to find all Empty tables.


;WITH TBL AS
(
   SELECT
      SUM(row_countAS ROW_COUNT,
      OBJECT_NAME(OBJECT_IDAS TABLE_NAME,
      OBJECT_SCHEMA_NAME(OBJECT_IDAS TABLE_SCHEMA
   FROM
      sys.dm_db_partition_stats
   WHERE
      INDEX_ID = 0 OR INDEX_ID= 1
         
   GROUP BY
      OBJECT_ID
)
SELECT *
FROM TBL
WHERE ROW_COUNT = 0

  
You can filter for schema as below.


;WITH TBL AS
(
   SELECT
      SUM(row_countAS ROW_COUNT,
      OBJECT_NAME(OBJECT_IDAS TABLE_NAME,
      OBJECT_SCHEMA_NAME(OBJECT_IDAS TABLE_SCHEMA
   FROM
      sys.dm_db_partition_stats
   WHERE
      INDEX_ID = 0 OR INDEX_ID= 1
         
   GROUP BY
      OBJECT_ID
)
SELECT *
FROM TBL
WHERE ROW_COUNT = 0
AND TABLE_SCHEMA='Schema_Name'


If you wish to find all tables which have values so please change in above query ROW_COUNT >0

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…

Check if an index exists in SQL Server

Many times we come across the scenario where we need to some code based on whether an index exists or not.
The following query may help you to check an index is exists in a particular table or not. Suppose we have a table like dbo.Table1 and it has index idx_Index and in some scenario, we need to check idx_Index exists or not.

System.index catalog view records for each Clustered and Non-Clustered indexes.  We can execute the following query to find out a particular index exists or not in a particular table

IFEXISTS (   SELECT 1 FROMsys.indexes   WHEREname='idx_Index'ANDobject_id=OBJECT_ID('dbo.Table1') ) BEGIN PRINT'Index is Exists' END
