How to execute it from the command line? I am able to use SQL in Management Portal, but I need to do it in Unix 

 select * from Ens_Util.Log where ConfigName='SFTPTo.HQ.SAFETRACE.DFT' AND Text LIKE '%Put Stream%' and TimeLogged LIKE '%2021-10-16%'

II try to explore the new SQL LOAD DATA  feature in SQL comparing it to SQL INSERT

I'm stuck at this point:  INSERT INTO <table> (columns...) VALUES  (.....)
allows having not just simple column references but also ALL Standard SQL FUNCTIONS (at least)

INSERT INTO Test (ShortName,DOB) VALUES  (SUBSTRING(Name,1,4),TO_DATE(displayDate,'MM-DD_YYY')) 

This works perfectly. 
BUT the same VALUE clause applied to LOAD DATA  fails in various ways:

0 3 51

In this article I will explain the usage of %SQL_Diag.Result and %SQL_Diag.Message table along with all-new LOAD DATA functionality.

It is recommended to go through LOAD DATA documentation first. 

After successful operation LOAD DATA insert one record in %SQL_Diag.Result table and details are inserted in %SQL_Diag.Message table

Below is the basic command when table is already created and source file does not contain header row. 

LOAD DATA FROM FILE 'C://TEMP/mydata.txt' 
INTO MyTable

The file name must include a .txt or .csv (comma-separated values) suffix and both source and target have the same sequence of data columns.


Loading from File Source: Header

I have csv date file with date values like this "4/10/2021" for April 10, 2021. I defined a table with this property: Property TranDate As %Library.Date.

I capture error

[SQLCODE: <-104>:<Field validation failed in INSERT, or value failed to convert in DisplayToLogical or OdbcToLogical>] [Location: <ServerLoop>] [%msg: <Field 'dc_data_finance.transact.TranDate' (value '4/10/2021') failed validation Field ...

I do not really want to change TranDate to %String. How can I import "4/10/2021" into %Date property?

The last days I've work with the great new feature: LOAD DATA With this post I would like to share my first experiences with you. The following points do not contain any order or other evaluation. These are only things that I noticed when using the LOAD DATA command. It should also be noted that these points are based on the IRIS Version 2021.2.0.617 which is a preview release. So it may be that my observations do not apply to newer IRIS versions.

DB Migration using SQLgateway

Thanks to @YURI MARX GOMES we have seen a very nice example for DB migration from Postgres to IRIS.
My personal problem is the use of DBeaver as a migration tool.
Especially as one of the strengths of IRIS ( and also Caché) before is the availability of the
SQLgateways that allow access to any external Db as long as for them an access usinig 
JDBC or ODBC is available. So I extended the package to demonstrate this.

One of my colleagues had developed an interface in Health Connect (HealthShare 2019.1) to add large amounts of data to an external SQL Server database. The data comes from many text files with delimited rows and data for one table per file. There is a business process to read a file line by line and send an Insert Request to an operation.

Hello Community,

I am trying to insert multiple values in a table. Below is the simple sql statement.

Insert Into TableX

How can i do multiple inserts(rows) in one single statement?

Hi there,

Does anyone have an example of the method used to run an SQL query and generate the view in a Mumps routine.   I have several SQL queries created from a vendor that need to be converted and the corresponding view referenced.  I cannot seem to find any examples in IDX routines or in the  IRIS/Cache documentation.  Any help is appreciated.

The 2021.2 release of the InterSystems IRIS Data Platform includes many exciting new features for fast, flexible and secure development of your mission-critical applications. Embedded Python definitely takes the limelight (and for good reason!), but in SQL we've also made a massive step forward towards a more adaptive engine that gathers detailed statistical information about your table data and exploits it to deliver the best query plans. In this brief series of articles, we'll take a closer at three elements that are new in 2021.2 and work together towards this goal, starting with Run Time Plan Choice.

It's hard to figure out the right order to talk about these (you can't imagine how often I've reshuffled them in writing this article!) because they fit together in such a nice way. As such, feel free to go on a limb and read these in random order smiley.

This is the second piece in our series on 2021.2 SQL enhancements delivering an adaptive, high-performance SQL experience. In this article, we'll zoom in on the innovations in gathering Table Statistics, which are of course the primary input for the Run Time Plan Choice capability we described in the previous article.

This is the third article in our short series around innovations in IRIS SQL that deliver a more adaptive, high-performance experience for analysts and applications querying relational data on IRIS. It may be the last article in this series for 2021.2, but we have several more enhancements lined up in this area. In this article, we'll dig a little deeper into additional table statistics we're starting to gather in this release: Histograms

Hi members,

I have these data :


and need to exploit the first character of cot field (Library CDU classification) like this :


I get this result... it's approximatively what I want... but I need it in just one line !

With mySQL I get it with just GROUP BY rcddate

I've been accessing Cache tables from a developer/reporting side, but am now involved in a project to create a data warehouse for our application.  I'm trying to find a query I can use to return the sizes of all the tables in the database, so we can identify the largest tables and handle those individually.  Can someone give me a query I can run against our Cache database to return the sizes of all the tables from largest to smallest?  

Thanks for the help

When i use &sql(SELECT ......)  in Cache I can watch the generated code
In the generated .int code and see what is happening.
Just with my normal rights

Now in IRIS I have just 4 line calling some class %sqlcq.***
With enough rights i find there is no such class but the generated .int routine
That holds the code that i had in my .int on Cache

Can i switch this back somehow ?

Hi Dev Community,

I have a persistent Document class that has a FileName string property and another Question class that has an optional one-to-many relationship with Document.

I'm trying to add a SqlComputed property to the Question class (docFileName) where docFileName = Document.FileName if there is a related Document or an empty string if there isn't one. 

I'd prefer the property to be SqlComputed so that if Question.Document changes, Question.docFileName will automatically update.
