  • 1. Updateable results grid in SQL Management Studio?
    In SQL Enterprise Manager (2000) I can right-click a table and then select Open Table > Query. In this mode I can specify a query, execute it and then edit the results right there in the grid. This gives me quick-and-dirty way to modify data w/o much hassle. Is there a way to do the above in SQL Management Studio 2005? If I right-click a table on Object Explorer, it only gives me Open Table option with no ability to filter the results... Any suggestions? TIA!
  • 2. Ad-hoc reporting
    We have a web application using SQL Server 2000, and we'd like to add ad-hoc reporting. Here are the options we thought of so far: 1. Use SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services - but we're not sure how "ad-hoc" we can get using SSRS. Has anyone tried? 2. Use a 3rd party reporting software package. Does anyone know of any? 3. Build a custom .NET ad-hoc app that is fine tuned for this application. This is likely the most costly. The goal is to have the users build and save report templates, and the be able to select any combination of fields in the relational schema to include in the reports, and select on any fields as well. Does anyone have any other suggestions? Thank you!!
  • 3. How to fast migrate sql 2005 server to another machine ?

  • 4. How to know if INSERTing or UPDATing?
    Hi all. I am quite new to SQLServer 2005 and I cannot seem to solve it. If we have a INSERT, UPDATE trigger, how do we know if the action that fired it is an INSERT or an UPDATE? Looking at 'deleted' virtual values perhaps? COLUMNS_UPDATED() yields > 0 even for INSERTS. TIA Cheers. Carlos.
  • 5. Roll back in DTS steps
    Is it possible to put a roll-back on a DTS steps ? Here is my situation: I have a DTS package where I drop all the constraints of a table then truncate the table for a fast Bulk-load process. After several steps, I bulk-load the table then, apply back all the constraints. The problem is, If the DTS package fails somewhere between the above 2 steps or at the bulk-insert step, I can not re-run the DTS package because I get error in the drop constraints-truncate step because the constaints are not re-created due to the first failure. The question is, is there a way that I can apply to the DTS that will roll-back the drop constraints-truncate step if the any of the steps until and including bulk insert-recreate constraints step fails ? so that when I run it second time, It will not give me "can not drop constraint because it doesn't exists in the database" error. How can I apply this roll-back if possible ? Some info: I can not have all the steps in one execute sql DTS item because the table has dependencies. "drop constraints and truncate table" is a single step and "Bulk load and re-create constraints" is another singe step. Thanks for any help.

Unable allocate min server memory size to greater than 1GB

I have installed a SQL Sever 2000 Standard Edition with Service Pack 4 on a 
Windows 2003 Standard Server with 2GB memory. But it does not allow me to set 
 the min server memory size that is greater than 1GB.  Do any one know what 
the problem is ? Thx.

do you get an error? can you set it via sp_configure? technically, your sql 
can use up to 2GB on win2k3 std. though, this would be unwise 'cuz you have 
to leave some for the OS.

Check the setting for 'max server memory'. 'min server memory' will not be 
allowed to exceed that. Also, with /3gb enabled, 1gb is reserved for the 
Windows kernel. Ensure that in your boot.ini that /3gb or /pae are NOT 
enabled as 2gb of RAM is too low to be using those options (both eat more 
free memory for the extra memory structures).

I represent Joe Nam to revise the question.
1. our sql server have set "use a fixed memory size" to 1800M, since the 
total memory of sql server exist 2G.
2. We don't know why the usage of physical memory only allocate below 1G of 
Please kindly advise the problem of our sql server setting.
Thank you for all advanced experts.

1.unable to allocate 'min server memory'

I have SQL2000 Enterprise running on a Win2003 Enterprise machine, with 16GB
of ram....and no other applications. I start the database up and get an
error "unable to allocate 'min server memory'", which doesn't allow the DB
to startup unless I bring the setting down to around 1GB.. Any idea why this
would occur, if I have this much ram?

Thanks for your help
