The instructor table looks a bit odd to me, having both ID and InstructorID I would assume you meant InstructorID and InstructorName.
And as an addition to what Mycroft said, in a fully normalized database you always use the same name for an entity throughout the database. It's not just a good idea, it's a standard[^].
And just like Mycroft said, for a surrogate key, using <tablename> + "ID" is a good idea
if OP put it in the Lounge they'd get flamed by many.
I don't see why, as it is not a programming question, more a general request for opinions and experiences. Plenty of similar discussions appear in the Lounge. I know these forums are titled "Discussions", but in reality they are for asking Technical Questions.
Ignore Richard and the bastard, this is an appropriate question in the correct forum.
Unfortunately your question is a little too broad to elicit a reasonable response. SSIS is such a wide subject.
I do know that we moved from ETL to ELT where the transforms are done via stored procedure. It is faster and I find it easier to debug and test. So SSIS just moves the data from the source into staging tables and launches the transform stored proc.
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity
In 3rd table, you can see that I am using boolean column which tells whether this Order belongs to guest user or member user. I want to select corresponding data using ONE QUERY. Here is what I have tried so far but it is far from working
SELECT O.*, CASE WHEN O.IsUserMember = 1 THEN U.UserName ELSE M.MemberName END
FROM Orders O, CASE WHEN O.IsUserMember = 1 THEN Users U ELSE Members M END
WHERE CASE WHEN O.IsUserMember = 1 THEN O.UserId = U.UserId ELSE B.UserId = M.MemberId END;
It is giving me this following error: Syntax error near 'CASE WHEN B.IsThisUserMember = 1 THEN Users U ELSE Members M END WHERE CASE WHEN' at line 1
NOTE: If I remove first CASE condition, then I get empty set. Thanks for whatever you share.
CASEWHEN O.IsUserMember = 1THEN U.UserName
LEFTJOIN Users U
ON U.UserId = O.UserId And O.IsUserMember = 0LEFTJOIN Members M
ON M.MemberId = O.UserId And O.IsUserMember = 1

I have got a side-question: shouldn't IsUserMember be a column in the Users table rather than in the Orders one? Is it possible that a specific user is considered as a member for an order, and not a member for another one?
Users represent guest users. Members represent registered users.
But, at the end, they are all users, whether they are registered or not. You do not have any "Members" table.
Is it possible that a specific user (so, only one user id), can order as registered user once, and then as unregistered user later (or the contrary)?
Again, I do not know the details of your requirements; I may be wrong, as I may miss something important.
I am thinking of building a custom SSIS Flat File Source component which extends the default Flat File Source component which ships with SSIS. Is there anyway so that I can reuse the code of the Flat File Source component which SSIS provides and then override the methods using my custom logic? Or is there no other option but to start from scratch?
Specifically, what I'm looking for is- being able to override the methods of the Flat File Source pipelinecomponent
being able to inherit the UI of the component so that I can extend it.
Hi CodeProject members,
After being a passive reader of CodeProject articles for so long a time, it feels great to be actively contributing something to this thriving and extremely helpful community.
Recently, I decided to undertake the task of explaining some relatively complex concepts of T-SQL, SQL Server and MSBI, in an effort to give back something to the community I have been learning from for so long.
My goal is to simplify the explanation and elucidation of the concepts as much as possible, at the expense of being annoyingly verbose if need be.
To this effect, I started with explanation of a recursive Common Table Expression in t-SQL. My article can be found at [Recursive CTE]
Now this is my first attempt at explaining something in writing. I need feedback-, how have I fared overall, suggestions for improvement, possible topics for later etc.
Thus, I am sincerely hoping, active community members would help me out in this regard. I have tried explaining the recursive CTE concept to the best of my ability here. But of course, often one's best is still lacking in some respects. Please come forth with your comments and feedback.
Could I have used a better example to explain the concept?
Could I have used better formatting for the code snippets? Or the result-sets?
How could I have ensured that this article is as helpful as possible to a person who is finding it difficult to grasp the recursive CTE concept?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Sigh! I thought I have already been through all this with one person.
Look. I wanted to post my message only once. At one place. But when I get confronted with a message like 'Message Removed', what is a newbie like me supposed to think? That maybe this isn't the right place to post a message like this. This happened to me when I went to post the message elsewhere too. Therefore the repetition.
I am a newbie when it comes to posting an article here.

This is my table structure and I select "for index types that do not support online index rebuild rebuild indexes offline" option in rebuild maintenance plan(use SQL maintenance plan-SQL Server 2012) but still getting error
failed with the following error: "An online operation cannot be performed for index 'PK_Table1_1' because the index contains column 'FileContent'"; of data type text, ntext
Clustered indexes must be created, rebuilt, or dropped offline when the underlying table contains large object (LOB) data types: image, ntext, text, varchar(max), nvarchar(max), varbinary(max), and xml.

If you can't read my code, try converting it here[^]
Yes i know that ,The table has varbinary(max) column can not online rebuild ,But i check this option : 'for index types that do not support online index rebuild, rebuild indexes offline' in SQL maintenance plan (SQL Server 2012). So this plan does rebuild it offline but still does online why?
