DataSource Controls :: Pull A Random Record From The Db?

Jan 22, 2010

I want to pull a random record from the db.

Here what I have so far.

Dim RandomNumber As New Random()
Dim num As Integer
num = RandomNumber.Next(1, 75).ToString
Dim Cnn As New OleDb.OleDbConnection("File Name=E:WebRHIUDLShelf_Life.UDL;")
Dim da As New OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter("SELECT tbMaster_List.dbMFG, tbMaster_List.dbDescription, tbInStock.ID, tbInStock.dbMFG_Lot_Code, tbInStock.dbDateReceived, tbInStock.dbDateOpened, tbInStock.dbExpireDate, tbInStock.dbLocation FROM (tbInStock
INNER JOIN tbMaster_List ON tbInStock.LnkToMaster = tbMaster_List.ID) ", Cnn)
Dim dtt As New DataTable()

This is were I am stuck.

I need to filter all rows out except where row(index) = num

Me.GridView4.DataSource = dtt
Label1.Text = "Error: Unable to Pull Data"
End Try

C# - How To Pull A Random And Unique Record From SQL Via LINQ

Apr 23, 2010

how to pull a RANDOM item from the database when using LINQ. There seems to be a couple of differnet ways to handle this. What I need to do though is pull a RANDOM item from the database that the user has not seen before.

The data I am pulling from the database is very small. Is there any way I can just hit the database once for 1000 records and then randomly scroll through those?

Should I put a cookie on the users system recording the IDs of which items they have seen, pull a random record, check to see if it is seen and if so, pull from the database again? That seems like performance issues just waiting to happen.

DataSource Controls :: Can Pull A Top Record And Avoid Duplicates

Feb 3, 2010

I have location #s, date, time, the sales amount, and tax in a excel file. The system pulls sales numbers throughout the day from each store location and places the total sales and tax numbers along with the polling date into a file.

So the most current date/time has the most upto date sales numbers at the time for that location number, but it also lists the older entries so mgmt can see how sales went during the day, and this is where my issue is, I don't need to see the old numbers from this generated file (atleast at this part of the program).

What I would like to do is write a query that only selects the most recent sales numbers for each location. I will output this to a table in ASP.NET. The query I tried using the TOP 1 clause only gave me the very first row listed below.

DataSource Controls :: Pull Google Maps Date From SQL Database?

May 27, 2010

On a test page, I successfully created a google map that pulls both marker and infoWindow information from an XML file. I did this just to get a feel for working with the API. It works fine. However, I do have a SQL database that has this information in it already. This database is updated behind the scenes regulary via a webservice.

I would like to try pulling the map information from my SQL database instead so I don't have to hand maintain the .xml file. The dabase alread has the lat/long information needed for markers. What is the easiest way for me to get that data from the SQL database? Is there a way to run a query and use the data, or will I need to run the query and somehow have it write/update my .xml file for me?

I need to pull a SubString from a Linq Datasource, but can't use INTs per .SubString(int, int) I have strings such as and I need to pull AAAA out. the preceeding x's will be varying lengths, so I can't use a static int. What I do know is that there will be a static number of periods (.) leading up to the AAAA. I can't figure out how to use the SubSting with characters rather than indexs.

DataSource Controls :: Getting The PK ID Of The Newly Created Record After Inserting A New Record?

Dec 20, 2010

I am creating an album using the following stored procedure, which returns the primary key for the newly created record:

For example, I have around 30 questions in my table, I just wanted to display 20 among them and that too in a random order without the same item repeating. Can we achieve this using SP or through some Dataset manipulation?

DataSource Controls :: Using LINQ To Pull Out A Single Value From A Single Result Row Of A Join Query?

May 25, 2010

For context: First of all, I am new to LINQ, as I have been using SubSonic for quite some time now.

I have two tables, Users, and Affiliates. They both have a very typical schema. The FK that joins them is the UserId field, which is in the Affiliates table. I want to create a LINQ query that pulls the Username from the Users table using the AffiliateId value. The AffiliateId is a primary key of the Affiliates table.

I have tried to accomplish this using many variations of the following code:


In the above query, I expect to get a single row result set. However, I instead receive the entire table of results.

How can I make this work? I have yet to see an example or article out there to do what I am trying to do.

DataSource Controls :: SQL Insert A Record Using VB?

Mar 31, 2010

I'm very new to this area and am using ASP.NET 3.5 with WMD 2008 Express Edition and VB code.

How do I write records to the SQL database using VB? I want to use the connection string, etc used in the ASP.NET controls if possible.

My website is a Rugby Club site and I've an SQL database of match fixtures which include TeamId(1XV, 2XV, etc.), Season(2008, 2009, etc) and match date.

I allow some users to update the fixture details but want to insert a series of new fixture records for the neext season which contain just TeamId Season and Match Dates. I therefore want to take the season and Team Id from label fields and then create match dates by adding seven days to a start date.
