Top SQL Server Google Searches For August 2006

These are the top SQL Searches on this site for the month of August I have left out searches that have nothing to do with SQL Server or programming (for example atlantic city escorts)

Here are the results...
dtsrun from sp
query multiple databases
first business day of each month query
Truncated table recovery
check constraint
dbcc report files
first business day of each month
String or binary data would be truncated.
SQL SELECT *
substr()
Login failed for user '(null)'. Reason: Not associated with a trusted SQL Server connection.
xp_fileexist
SQL SELECT WHERE DATE
CONCAT_NULL_YIELDS_NULL
check constrant
SQL 2000 parallel backup restore
dtsrun

Let's talk about a couple of these

query multiple databases
I covered that in this post

first business day of each month query
You really need to have a calendar table for this one. You can also use a number table and check for the min date where select datepart(dw,date) between 2 and 6 but what about holidays. A calendar table is your best bet. And I know just a place to get some code for that-->A way to load a calendar table

Login failed for user '(null)'. Reason: Not associated with a trusted SQL Server connection.
That can be found here: 2000 version, 2005 version

xp_fileexist
That is covered here

String or binary data would be truncated
And that was covered here


So there you have it, those were some of the searches and I covered some of that stuff already. I always like to look at the searches because it gives me ideas for future blog posts

That's about the most shameless attempt at linkbaiting that I've ever seen lol

Well "A way to load a calendar table" doesn't link to my blog. But yes the others do, I use these seaches to write blogpost.
This month I decided to provide links to the posts that I had already written for some of these searches (for convenience reasons) sinxe it looks like people are still seraching for the same stuff
