Return only the records with a string of text that is less than a certain value?

Hi people,

I'm not sure whether this is possible or not, but worth-

I need to be able somehow output only the lines with the text of a column field less to (because of the arguments) 30 characters (including spaces). I know that I can use CFs Left() function to cut the chain, but I don't want to have words cut off mid-sentence. Therefore, I want to somehow restrict the query to only the records that contain a string of less than 30 characters.

Is this possible?

Thanks in advance :-)

You can use the length of the db function. It may or may not be named LEN()

SELECT SomeColumn
FROM YourTable
WHERE LEN (SomeColumn)<=>

Or you can retrieve all of the records and use one of the functions of the chain at cflib.org as FullLeft().

  • Return only the columns with different values.

    Hi all

    I am trying to solve a seemingly trivial problem but can't seem to get any clear answer anywhere in any forum. Consider a single table with 5 columns and only two lines:
    row_id           first_name         last_name        age            gender
    1                    John                  doe               27             M
    1                    Jane                  doe               27              F  
    Assume that there is no primary key or any other constraint. Also assume that there are only and only two lines of this table. So I need basically a query that, overall above lines, would return first name and sex, because they are only different columns in two lines, as well as their values. Even if I can get sort of column names that are different and that would be enough that I can easily access the values later. It is also important to remember that I may not know the names of the columns in the columns, so basically, somehow, I use user_tab_columns in the process.

    Any help appreciated.

    ;
    

    Output:

    DIFFERENT_COLUMNS
    ---------------------------------------
    first_name,gender
    

    This assumes that you have really a table, then you can use ROWID to distinguish the lines, since there is no primary key.
    If this isn't the case, you first assign ROW_NUMBER in a subquery.

  • best way to find the maximum value that is less than a specific value?

    Hello guys,.

    What is the fastest way to find a record that has value max of a field and there is a limitation to a specific value for ex:

    example 1:
    create table dummy(master_id number, detail_id number, some_value varchar2(80));
     
    insert into dummy values (1,1,'bla bla1');
    insert into dummy values (1,2,'bla bla2');

    I want to get:
    1 3 bla bla3
    2 4 bla bla7
    And these applications give a correct result:

  • Need help to write a MySQL query that returns only the peer matching records

    Notice the ' ABC / GHI' record does not have a Counter-match ' GHI / ABC' record. This record must not be returned because there is no Counter-Party correspondent. With this table, the ' ABC / GHI' record should be the one returned in the query.

    Hello

    The data type of the function output has been configured as 'List of SQLInstanceRuleStatuss', where SQLInstanceRuleStatuss is the custom type, I created in the same module.

    When I tested the function, it returns all instances of SQL Server with two other columns.

    But when I try to create a view with the Rows property that is configured to use the feature, it returns only the first line:

    for (it in queryResult.topologyObjects)

  • return only the decimal value

    What function can I use to return only the decimal value of a formula

    (97 * 2.2) / 14 value returns 15.24

    I only want to use le.24

    Salvation is

    Use the formula - INT (formula)

    In the special case above:

    =(97*2.2)/14 - INT ((97*2.2)/14)

    You see two places to the right of the decimal separator in reason to be rounded off to the value real, in the shape of the cell to only show as two decimal places, either by setting the width of the cell close enough to force the rounding of the displayed value.

    Note that if the result is rounded (using the ROUND function) the actual value of the cell will be the rounded value. For the other two cases, the value displayed indicates only two decimal places, but the real value in the cell (and the additional calculations used by referring to this cell) is 0.242857142857144, which could lead to surprises in the results of the calculations downstream.

    Before Oracle 9 it was true. Since you're using Oracle 10, you can if you wish; but I'm guessing that you don't want in this case.

    A WITH clause is an option?

    If possible, I don't want to put a selection in a database to display object and join against other queries.

    Yes, a WITH clause that is an option. Viewed online, as Zhxiang has shown, are another option. Either way gives you a regular display effect without creating a database object.

    You did not show a sample and the results, so no one can tell if a join is really what you want. Other possibilities include INTERSECT or an IN subquery.

  • Return only the hits that corresponds to 3 or more keywords in the search string

    I created a Multi context column index that works as expected.

    In my application, I would like to be able to search using the following (or similar) string:

    "man dog cat tree fetch stick."

    And I would like to return only results that contain 3 or more words. That is to say, any result which contained 'man' and 'dog' and 'stick' would be a match, but the results which contained only "fetch" and "dog" wouldn't.

    Can anyone think of a way to create such a feature?

    Thank you very much in advance for your suggestions.

    Andy

    The "accum" operator (shortened - ",") could help here. Accum is set such that several results are guaranteed to produce a higher score than the terms less. He did this in 'zoning' results - if you do a search of accum for two words, then suddenly will always score in the range 1-50, and and two hits will always be in the range of 51 to 100.

    You can so work with your terms of six search, the result will be something like:
    1 Word hit 1-16
    2 words hit 17-33
    3 words reached 33-50
    4 words hit 51-83
    5 words hit 84-100

    So the search for at least three words is: CONTAINS (col, ' man, dog, cat, stick, tree, look for ") 32 >

    See the complete example below:

    SQL> drop table foo;
    Table dropped.
    
    SQL>
    SQL> create table foo(bar varchar2(60));
    Table created.

    1 row created.
    
    SQL> create index foobar on foo(bar) indextype is ctxsys.context;
    Index created.
    
    SQL> select score(0), bar from foo where contains (bar, 'man , dog , cat , stick , tree , fetch', 0) > 0;
    
      SCORE(0)    BAR
    ----------    ------------------------------------------------------------
         17    man dog
         34    man dog cat
         51    man dog cat stick
         67    man dog cat stick tree
         84    man dog cat stick tree fetch

         67    man dog cat stick tree
         84    man dog cat stick tree fetch
    

    Of course you don't know the terms of research beforehand how many there are, in this case, you'll need to do the calculation, or use a lookup table to understand what are the limits of the partition.

    Hi all!

             1 John Smith Street 1 City 1              
             1 John Smith Street 1 City 1 (31) 234-1234
    UserID is PK on this table. Imagine that this application represents two versions of the same record on a table. This recording was 'day' and the phone field changed from null to "(31) 234-1234'.»

    What I´d like to do is to retrieve only (or fields) that changed between these 2 versions of the same record. The idea is to call this query (or process PLSQL) a trigger and save these data on a table. The data returned by the query (or process), on the example above, should be something like:
           USERID     USERNAME STREET CITY PHONE        
    ---------- -------- ------ ---- -------------
             1                      (31) 234-1234
    1 row selected.
    If two columns have been modified, (Eg., City column also changed "City 1' to 'city 12'), the return value should be:

    Is there a way we can insert commas in the table?

    This statement has been inserted

    What is your question.

    SQL> INSERT INTO TABLEA(CITY) VALUES('ALBANY,NEWYORK,TROY') ;
    
    1 row created.
