T-SQL Challenge #1

  • Ohk Thanks for acknowledge this,,, i write this to solve in SQL 2000 and only for that same data i generate row numbers in this so i write this if you some solution which works on all the data then what i write..

    -- Code for Challenge #1

    SELECT T1.code, T1.aname, D.bname, D.cname

    FROM TableA T1



    SELECT COALESCE(D2.code, D3.code) AS code







    FROM TableB T2

    ) D2





    FROM TableC T3

    ) D3

    ON D2.code = D3.code

    AND D2.RowId = D3.RowId

    ) D

    ON T1.code = D.code

    Whilst I enjoyed the mental exercise and learning something I didn't know about 2005, I just can't picture when I would actually do such a join in real life. Is there a logical, meaningful example that was the basis of this problem ... and if not, does anyone have any ideas of when you'd prefer results which only join multiple values in this manner?

    Heh... I don't know about now, but I went through that with customer placement with AT&T years ago... even though a 3.5" diskette could hold thousands of new customer records, they only allowed us to put 100 on a disk and they had to all be in the same "region". Even when they shifted to FTP uploads, they still kept the paradigm of only 100 customers in a batch.

    The reason why they did this is they would have a keypunch person verify each phone number manually then prep a work order for a tech. They used 100 as the breaking point for how many a tech should be able to handle in a day.

    I think they're a little more efficient now... well... maybe. 😛

    RBAR is pronounced "ree-bar" and is a "Modenism" for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
    First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
    ________Stop thinking about what you want to do to a ROW... think, instead, of what you want to do to a COLUMN.

    Change is inevitable... Change for the better is not.

  • Ouch! I just realized that I triple-posted the other day when I was having a lot of trouble with the site... :w00t:

  • First we need to full join the tables @b-2 and @C based on the code and the position of the bname and cname. Then later make right join with @a table.

    select a1.code,a1.aname,b1.bname,c1.cname

    from @C c1

    full join @b-2 b1

    on c1.code=b1.code and

    (select count(c2.code) from @C c2 where c1.cname>=c2.cname and c1.code=c2.code)


    (select count(b2.code) from @b-2 b2 where b1.bname>=b2.bname and b1.code=b2.code)

    right join @a a1 on isnull(b1.code,c1.code)= a1.code

  • select


    , aname

    , bname

    , cname

    from (



    , bName

    , ROW_NUMBER() over (partition by code order by code) as br

    from @b-2

    ) b

    right join (



    , cname

    , ROW_NUMBER() over (partition by code order by code) as cr

    from @C

    ) c on b.code = c.code and b.br = c.cr

    right join @a a on c.code = a.code

  • Here is what I came up with:

    SELECT ISNULL(ac.code, b1.code) AS code, a2.aname, b1.bname, ac.cname

    FROM (SELECT a.code, a.aname, c.cname, ROW_NUMBER() OVER (Partition BY a.aname ORDER BY a.code, a.aname) AS RNO

    FROM @a AS a


    ON a.code = c.code) AS ac

    FULL JOIN (SELECT b.code, b.bname, ROW_NUMBER() OVER (Partition BY b.code ORDER BY b.code, b.bname) AS RNO

    FROM @b-2 b) AS b1

    ON ac.code = b1.code

    AND ac.RNO = b1.RNO

    LEFT JOIN @a AS a2

    ON ISNULL(ac.code, b1.code) = a2.code

    ORDER BY ISNULL(ac.code, b1.code), a2.aname, b1.bname, ac.cname

  • select a.*,d.bname,d.cname from @a a

    left join

    (select b.code b_code,b.bname,c.code c_code,c.cname from

    (select ROW_NUMBER() over(partition by code order by code)Rank

    ,* from @b-2)b full join

    (select ROW_NUMBER() over(partition by code order by code)Rank

    ,* from @C)c

    on b.code=c.code and b.rank=c.rank)d

    on a.code in (b_code,c_code)
