SQL : Sql Query Execution Order

Most programming languages executes set of statements from Top to Bottom but SQL Server executes set of statements in a logical order which is uniquely decides by the SQL Server in a predefined order known as Logical Query processing phase.

Introduction

When we are developing an application our concern mostly related to the code optimization which enhances the performance of application. When we are talking about an application it has broadly divided into two part one is the our code written in any programming language and other is the code written in database which executes at database level and return the results to our application.
In real world most application facing the performance issue which can be improved by code optimization. Here we will talk about the SQL query optimization.Most programming languages executes set of statements from Top to Bottom but SQL Server executes set of statements in a logical order which is uniquely decides by the SQL Server in a predefined order known as Logical Query processing phase.

Difference between Stored Procedures and User Defined Functions in SQL Server


Stored Procedure
Stored Procedures are pre-compile objects which are compiled for first time and saved, which executes (compiled code) whenever it is called. Stored procedure does not necessarily return data, but it can return more than one result set. It can be used to affect data (update/insert/delete), can have transactions, can have error handling, do not have restrictions about non-deterministic functions, and can call other stored procedures.

User Defined Function
User defined function is compiled and executed every time when it is called. Function attempts to return something, always, and has several restrictions - for example, you can't use DML statements, call stored procedures, call NEWID(), etc. You also cannot have error handling, transactions, or non-deterministic functions (e.g. GETDATE() in SQL Server 2000).

Differences :
  • Stored procedures compiled first time and reuse the execution plan when next time called while function compiled every time when called.
  • Stored procedure can have input parameter as well as output parameter while user defined function can have only input parameters.

SQL Server- User Defined Function to Parse HTML- Strip HTML -Without Using Regular Expression

This is a simple tip post. In this post I will show you a user defined function in SQL Server which parse the HTML and retrieve the Text only from it.

In previous posts, I explained Case Sensitive Search in SQL Server, Check Primary Key Existence in Table, Reset Identity Column in SQL Server, Insert Values into Identity column, Identity Column in SQL Server , STUFF Function, LEN Function, UNICODE Function, LEFT Function, CHARINDEX Function, Simple script to backup all SQL Server databases, Table-Valued Parameters and some other articles related to SQL ServerASP.Net, C#.

Following UDF takes the HTML as input and returns Text only from it. Please note you need to replace all the single quotes (if any) with two single quote (not double quote) in HTML before passing it as input to function.

SQL Server- Case Sensitive Search in SQL Server

Case Sensitive Search in SQL Server
Today I was working on text search functionality in my application. It was not a very big deal until I had not a requirement for Case Sensitive search functionality. This was new thing (at least for me). I Googled it and find number of search results with same solution. So here I am just adding one more search result for Google.

In previous posts, I explained Check Primary Key Existence in Table, Reset Identity Column in SQL Server, Insert Values into Identity column, Identity Column in SQL Server , STUFF Function, LEN Function, UNICODE Function, LEFT Function, CHARINDEX Function, Simple script to backup all SQL Server databases, Table-Valued Parameters and some other articles related to SQL ServerASP.Net, C#.

In  SQL Server ,  Installation by default are case insensitive .This means that SQL Server ignores the case of the characters and treats the string 'Dot Net World' equal to the string 'dot net world'.

SQl Server- Reset Identity Column in SQL Server

If you deleted all the records from the table and there is an Identity column in your table, You will see that when you insert a new record in your table then Identity column value starts from the last value of that column incremented by your step value.

If you want to start the Identity column value from the seed value after deleting all the record then you must have reset the Identity column value. Here, I am going to show you that how you can reset Identity column value in SQL Server?.

IDENTITY column is an auto incrementing column provided by SQL Server. SQL Server will take care of incrementing this column automatically.This is much like an AutoNumber field in Microsoft Access or a sequence in Oracle.
