Generate table Scripts with Not If exist check and Insert scripts(table data).

Generating script is a very good option exists in SQL server through which we can generate script for whole DB or can generate scripts for selected objects (i.e. table, view, stored procedure etc.).
However sometime it is requirement that you need to generate script with check of if exists. For example you want to create a table in one DB but wanted to make sure it should not already exist. For such instance we can generate script with check of not existence.
Same way sometime there are requirement that table should be recreated with Data. And while generating script we can choose the option whether we want script of table or insert script of table or both.

Below I am showing script generation for both options:
     We have database Test_DB with one table tb_Student.

I have ran select query to check   the record in table (I just wanted to show that there are 5 records exist in table)

1.    Now Right click on DB and under Tasks click on Generate Scripts.

2.    Now under Choose Objects there are two options Scripts entire DB or Select specific DB objects. I have choose second option and selected table tb_Student, and click on Next

3.    On next screen we need to set scripting options, there is options of saving script of publish script to web service. Under save script there are three option of saving as: Save to file, Save to Clipboard or Save to new query window. I have selected third option Save to new query window.
4.    Now click on Advanced button.

5.    Under Advanced scripting options to generate script with not if exist check set Include If NOT EXISTS to True

6.  To generate script with data (i.e. insert scripts), set Types of data to script option to Schema and data and click OK and then click on Next. (If you want only create script then select script only and if you want only insert script then select Data only option).

7.    On Summary page one can check summary of selected scripts options, now click on Next. Once it’s finished click on Finish button.

8.    Now verify the scripts you can check scripts are generated with If NOT EXISTS check and inserts scripts are also created.

 Hope it helps!!!!!!

C#: Merging Excel cells with NPOI HSSFWorkbook

In this post we’ll see how to merge the two or more cell with each other while creating the excel sheet using NPOI.
Mentioned below is code to merge multiple cells, in this example we are merging first cell to fifth cell of first row (you can adjust row or cell range by passing particular parameters in CellRangeAddress).
//Created new Workbook var hwb = new NPOI.HSSF.UserModel.HSSFWorkbook(); //Create worksheet with name. var sheet = hwb.CreateSheet("new sheet"); //Create row and cell. var row = sheet.CreateRow(0); var cell = row.CreateCell(0); ; //Set text inside cell cell.SetCellValue("This is Merged cell"); cell.CellStyle.WrapText = true; //define cell range address // parameters: -> first row to last and first cell to last cell var cra = new NPOI.SS.Util.CellRangeAddress(0, 0, 0, 4); //Add merged region to sheet. sheet.AddMergedRegion(cra);
Hope this solution helps you J

Calculate Sum and average of two or more Textbox values using JQuery

We can calculate sum and average of values entered in textboxes with the help of small piece of jQuery code.
First of all let’s create a HTML form where we’ll ask user to enter marks in each subject, under body section add following HTML:
<tableclass="demo-table"> <trclass="label"> <tdcolspan="2">Please enter marks(0-99):</td> </tr> <tr> <td>English</td> <td> <inputtype="text"class="txtMarks"name="txtMarks"

Difference between Web API, WCF and Web Service

So now we have got the basic idea about Web API, now let’s do some comparison of Web API with WCF and web services.
Web Service WCF Web API Web services created as file with .asmx extension. WCF create with .svc extension Web API are simple class file with .cs(for C#) extension. Web API is inherited from “ApiController” and class name must end with “Controller”. It is SOAP based service and return data in XML form. It is also based on SOAP and return data in XML form. Web API is HTTP based service and by default it return data in JSON or XML form. It supports only HTTP protocol. It supports various protocols like TCP, HTTP, HTTPS, Named Pipes, and MSMQ. It supports HTTP protocol. It can be hosted only on IIS. It can be hosted with in the application or on IIS or using window service. It can be hosted with in the application or on IIS. It is not open source but can be consumed by any client that understands xml. It is not open source but can be consumed by any client t…
