In this article, I have explained how we can divide and export data of SQL Server database table into Oracle and MySQL databases. That process is based on the condition defined in SSIS as “conditional split transformation”. Conditional split transformation is like case statement of any programming language. Using conditional, we can redirect the output of a component in multiple destinations that is based on a condition defined in the conditional split component. Read More
In this article, I will explain how we can divide and export data of an Oracle database table into multiple worksheets of an Excel file with help of the SQL Server integration service package.
Often, DBAs asked to generate Ad-Hoc reports from a database. Recently I have been asked to generate a report from the database. They want me to provide a report in multiple worksheets of an Excel file. There are different ways to do it but the query was resource-intensive. Hence I want to extract data from the database with one execution and decided to use the SQL Server integration services package. SQL Server data tools have one component called Conditional Split Transformation which can be used to achieve the task. Read More
SQL Server Replication is an SQL Server feature that allows us to transfer data from one instance to another for such purposes as consolidating data into a reporting environment or migrations. I personally would not consider SQL Server Replication as a high availability technology even though some people consider it to be.
Constraints on tables and columns allow you to enforce the data quality. In SQL, there are two ways of creating constraints on a table: inline and out of line.
In this article, I am going to explore these constraints and the advantages they have, as well as explain which one I recommend and why.
In this article, I will continue with Oracle Database Security and I will present some important facts about standard database auditing, audit triggers, and audit policies in Oracle. Database auditing has two components: monitoring and persistent registration of established database activity sets and events. The purposes of database auditing are non-repudiation, investigation of suspicious activities, detection of problems generated by configurations regarding authorization (resources access), compliance with actual legislation and control.

There is no secret that information makes the world go around currently. If an enterprise takes care of its intellectual property and each employee can easily get the necessary information, the enterprise can hope for the growth. If there is chaos in data, the enterprise will fail despite the team spirit.
In this article, we are going to explore the database security basics and examples of information protection in Oracle. Actually, the theoretical basics for protecting information in the database, which we are going to consider in this article, will be also useful to people working with other databases.
Data encryption is very important because it’s a way to protect the current and the archived data in order to ensure its confidentiality. This prevents an unauthorized access and usage. In this article, I will briefly present some important aspects of data encryption and decryption.
In this article, we’ll look at how an index can improve the query performance.
Indexes in Oracle and other databases are objects that store references to data in other tables. They are used to improve the query performance, most often the SELECT statement.
They aren’t a “silver bullet” – they don’t always solve performance problems with SELECT statements. However, they can certainly help.
Let’s consider this on a particular example.
In this article, I would like to talk about one of the basic certifications from Oracle – Oracle Database SQL Certified Expert. Unfortunately, this certification has become unavailable recently, but still, this article may be useful for preparing for other certifications and exams from Oracle. I wish a good read to everyone who wants to know which questions and tricks may await them and wants to be ahead of the game. Read More
A subquery is a powerful way to find the data you want to use for another query. They are often used in SELECT and UPDATE statements to make these queries more efficient and easier to maintain.
There are several different ways to use subqueries in UPDATE statements. Let’s take a look at each of them.
