LINQ To SQL Select Distinct From Multiple Colums?

Apr 2, 2010

I'm using LINQ to SQL to select some columns from one table. I want to get rid of the duplicate result also.

Dim customer = (From cus In db.Customers Select cus.CustomerId, cus.CustomerName).Distinct

Result:

1 David
2 James
1 David
3 Smith
2 James
5 Joe

Wanted result:

1 David
2 James
3 Smith
5 Joe

Can anyone show me how to get the wanted result?

C# - LINQ Select Distinct While Evaluating Multiple Rows

Jul 11, 2011

I have an EnumerableRowCollection that looks like the following:
VendorCode | GroupType | Variance
01165 G .16
01165 G .16
01165 CH .16
01165 CH .18
07754 G .25
07754 G .25
07754 G .39

Essentially, this is a massive list of vendor codes, their groups, and price variances. I need to compose a query that will create a distinct list vendor codes and group types. The catch, however, is that I need to evaluate all of the variances associated with that particular VendorCode/GroupType to see if they are all the same - it they are not, I need to return some way of signifying that the group has a "custom" variance, otherwise it needs to return the value (ie: if they are all .16, then return .16, if there are multiple values, return "custom")

The result would look like this, based off of the list I showed above.
VendorCode | GroupType | Variance
01165 G .16
01165 CH custom
07754 G custom

I have no trouble getting a distinct list of VendorCode/GroupType - this is what I have so far:
Dim distinctList = From q In query Select q.VendorCode, q.GroupType, (evaluated q.Variance here?) Distinct
(where "query" is an EnumerableRowCollection(Of (anonymous type)))
I'm at a loss, though, on how to evaluate the variance property to get the result that I need?

Linq To Datarow, Select Multiple Columns As Distinct?

Apr 16, 2010

basically i'm trying to reproduce the following mssql query as LINQ

SELECT DISTINCT [TABLENAME], [COLUMNNAME] FROM [DATATABLE]

the closest i've got is

Dim query = (From row As DataRow In ds.Tables("DATATABLE").Rows _
Select row("COLUMNNAME") ,row("TABLENAME").Distinct

when i do the above i get the error

Range variable name can be inferred only from a simple or qualified name with no arguments.

i was sort of expecting it to return a collection that i could then iterate through and perform actions for each entry. maybe a datarow collection?

As a complete LINQ newb, i'm not sure what i'm missing.
i've tried variations on

Select new with { row("COLUMNNAME") ,row("TABLENAME")}

and get:

Anonymous type member name can be inferred only from a simple or qualified name with no arguments.

to get around this i've tried

Dim query = From r In ds.Tables("DATATABLE").AsEnumerable _
Select New String(1) {r("TABLENAME"), r("COLUMNNAME")} Distinct

however it doesn't seem to be doing the distinct thing properly.

.net - Linq To Object - Select Distinct

Mar 18, 2010

I can't quite figure out why this Linq Statement isn't working as i would expect:

I would assume that this would create a new collection of anonymous types, that would be distinct. Instead it creates a collection the size of the "ThisParentCollection" with duplicate "MyAnonymousType" in it (duplicate id's).

LINQ / Select Distinct From Dataset?

Aug 20, 2010

I have a single columned datatable inside a single tabled dataset.I just want to convert this dataset to distinct rows. Here is my code, it gives compile error '.' expected.

Dim query = _
From email In ds.Tables(0) _
Select email.Field<string>("Email").Distinct()

EDIT: I changed to (Of String) and it works... BUT NOW 'query' is an ienumerable collection of characters... not a datatable... so how do I convert back easily without manually doing a loop?

C# - LINQ Select From IEnumerable With Distinct/GroupBy And Sorting?

Oct 19, 2010

My particular example is fairly complex but I think the concept would apply equally to something like a logging system so I'll use that instead for ease of explanation. It's a ficticious example, please don't harp on or agonise over what is achitectually, programatically or morally wrong with the example itself

[Code]...

I don't want to 'cheat' and resort to a long-winded way of doing it when performance isn't critical here and I'm moderately confident it can be done in a single LINQ statement.

Get Distinct Values From List(Of T) Using Linq?

Mar 10, 2012

I have a List(Of Hardware) - the List is called HWModels

Class Hardware has the following Properties:

ModelName
Status
CPUStatus
MemoryStatus
DiskStatus

The List is populated by reading a CSV file, once it's populated, I want to return the distinct records based on the ModelName

I've attempted by doing it as follows:

(From a In HWModels Select a.ModelName).Distinct

But this isn't right because I end up with a list of only the ModelName's and nothing else.

How do I get the Distinct function to return all of the other class members within the list?

How To Group Distinct Columns In A Linq Query

Nov 4, 2010

The following data is created by joining two sql tables together:I would like to group together distinct rows of DateStamp/UserName/ StudentName/ InstructorName/TableName/PrimaryKey (I'll call this 'group records') and then group under these ColumnName/PreviousValue/NewValue (I'll call this 'subgroup records')The end result would be that I could iterate through the 'group records' - there would be 5. In each 'group record', I could then iterate through the 'subgroup records'. The 5 groups would contain 3, 2, 5, 2 and 1 subgroup records respectively.What would be the syntax to create a query to do this? Ideally this would be in a vb.net linq syntax.

Selecting Distinct Within LINQ Of Data Rows

Oct 24, 2011

I have a DataTable with about 64 columns, including "UserAnswer", "CorrectAnswer", and "QID_Lookup". I am building a LINQ that will select all the rows that have a correct answer (user answer matches correct answer), but I only want to select rows that have distinct "QID_Lookup".

[Code]...

The problem is that the result set includes duplicate QID_Lookup values. How can I include only distinct QID_Lookup values? keep in mind that there are 64 columns, so if I can avoid it, I wouldn't want to list each column individually for selection.

Constraint Violation When Using Select Distinct?

I have a problem running a simple query: "select distinct payee from table". This query is set up in the dataset and is called GetAllPayee.My code goes something like:

Dim dtSources as new Datatable
dtSources =
Me.TblExpenseRecordsTableAdapter.GetAllPayee
Upon running I get the error:Failed to enable constraints. One or more rows contain values violating non-null, unique, or foreign-key constraints.The problem is, I haven't set ANY constraints on either the new datatable, or the dataset table (tblExpenseRecords). i.e. there is no primary key etc.

Can someone please help me out with this problem?I have no problems running the query through the wizard where I can view the results successfully.

Asp.net - LINQ To SQL - Select SUM With A WHERE?

Aug 17, 2009

I'm having trouble getting a Linq to Sql query to work. Basically, I want the sum of a column in a table for only rows matching a certain condition. A simplified version is this:

Orders = order that contains products
OrderProducts = relational table containing products that are in an order
Products = table containing information about products

I can get the total sum of the qty of products like this:

Dim totalQty = requests.Sum(Function(p) p.OrderProducts.Sum(Function(q) CType(q.ProductQty, Nullable(Of Integer))))

(Requests is a IQueryable of Orders)But I also need to get the sum of qty where the actual product meets a certain condition. Something like...

Dim totalQty = requests.Sum(Function(p) p.OrderProducts.Sum(Function(q) CType(q.ProductQty, Nullable(Of Integer))))... WHERE p.OrderProducts.Product.ProductAttribute = true

How would I go about getting that query with the additional where clause to only get the sum of the qtys where the productAttribute = true ?
