How to terminate sqlcmd immediately after execution completed? – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/01/24

The subtle difference between -q and -Q: the latter will exit after executing the command (regardless of the SQL server version; I think this was introduced in SQL Server 2005 or 2000).

Inside the command, you can use single ' quotes for strings.

C:\Users\jeroenp>sqlcmd /?

Static Code Analyzer for T-SQL – MS SQL Server.

Plugs into MS SSMS and can also be run from command line.It reports useful clues which you can turn/on off to your liking. http://sqlcodeguard.com/index-database-issues.html

It will spot declared but unused variables, but it appears it doesn’t do code coverage or execution path to spot stuff like variables being used without being initialized.

Common Table Expressions: no nesting, but consecutively usage – via Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/09/28

Common table expressions are awesome. They work in at least Oracle and SQL Server.

You cannot nest them, but you can use them consecutively. Thanks spender for explaining that:

WITH
x AS
(
SELECT * FROM MyTable
),
y AS
(
SELECT * FROM x
)
SELECT * FROM y

SQL Server: when your database is in “Recovery Pending” mode

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/03/31

With SQL Server, when your database is in “Recovery Pending” mode don’t just start blindingly search google, but sit down as you might be causing more damage doing so.

After sitting down, read these two posts by Paul Randal | SQLskills.com from his SQL Server Corruption series:

  1. Search Engine Q&A #4: Using EMERGENCY mode to access a RECOVERY PENDING or SUSPECT database.
  2. SQL Server EMERGENCY mode repair.

Then think about it before acting.

Though the simplest cause for “Recovery Pending” might be that a disk spin-up was slow, or a disk became full (and everything might just be dandy after the disk is available and there is enough room on it), make sure you read the above posts first before relying on the simple causes.
