I have two tables, stg,main with the same structure.Each day data is refeshed into stg from the flat file. And from there into main.Before the main table is loaded,I need to validate if the data in all the columns of the row is matching.The main challenge is I have 100 columns in these tables. Can any one recommend me of a optimal solution to compare data across the tables ?The bottom line is I should not create duplicate rows into the main table.

Thanks in Advance.

Suggest you look at EXCEPT (and maybe INTERSECT) in BOL

Sincere Thanks for coming up with your suggestions.At this point I have tried out Except operator and this seems to be working reasonably well for me.

Hi,

I have implemented the same task using SSIS and it works like a charm. I have used lookup table task in SSIS.

http://www.sqlis.com/post/Get-all-from-Table-A-that-isnt-in-Table-B.aspx ===> use method 2, it works for me.

Hope this helps,

\\K

Hi,

Looking for a method of comparing rows in the same table, I ran across this thread. I thought I would add my 2p to the debate:


SET @result = 0

IF EXISTS (SELECT EX.DocumentID FROM
(SELECT DocumentID, DocTitle, SortLetter, SortNumber FROM
PMProcessProcedures WHERE PMProcessID = @ID
EXCEPT
SELECT DocumentID, DocTitle, SortLetter, SortNumber FROM
PMProcessProcedures WHERE PMProcessID = @Approved) EX)

SET @result = 1



This will set @result if the two rows are different.

Hope this helps someone...

Here is your Solution

http://www.sqlservercentral.com/scripts/Table+Data+Comparison/141216/

get the SQL Statement after running procedure and then change EXISTS with NOT EXISTS and you all done.
