SQL Server csv in xml out Project Part 6


In this post we will focus on cleaning the incoming data. In our project, the stored procedure that handles this is usp_14OrderClean.

Here is a list of the things that this stored procedure does. Below that is just part of the code we will use.

  • Ensure the validity of the DateandTime
  • Ensure that the SupplierCode is three capital letters and four numerals
  • Ensure that the OrderNumber contains exactly five numerals
  • For quantity of units ensure that it is a positive integer
  • Check for any bad characters. – Yet to be defined…
  • Remove all leading and trailing spaces
  • Remove any double quotes and dollar signs

-- We have not yet copied the data in these two tables to the three tables
DECLARE @RowsReturned INT
DECLARE @ErrMsg VARCHAR(200)
-- Ensure that the DateandTime is numerals, has leading zeros where
-- necessary and actually can represent a date and time (no Feb. 30th and so on),
-- otherwise raise a critical error.
-- To do this we could parse the string, and attempt to put the data into 
-- a datetime2 variable. If not successful, it raises a critical error.

-- raise a critical error



-- Check for any bad characters. What defines a bad character? If it has
-- bad characters raise critical error

-- Remove all leading and trailing spaces from FullSupplierName
UPDATE [dbo].[01HeaderBulkInsert] SET FullSupplierName = LTRIM(RTRIM(FullSupplierName));
-- Remove all leading and trailing spaces from BookTitle and Authors

UPDATE [dbo].[02DetailBulkInsert] SET Authors = LTRIM(RTRIM(Authors));
-- Remove any double quotes; REPLACE " with nothing
UPDATE [dbo].[02DetailBulkInsert] SET BookTitle = REPLACE(BookTitle ,'"','')
-- Remove any currency symbols from the amount; REPLACE $ with nothing
UPDATE [dbo].[02DetailBulkInsert] SET UnitPrice = REPLACE(UnitPrice ,'$','')
