A simple count aggregate function should do the job

I am copying the appropriate query here (Replace Table1 with the appropriate table name):

SELECT LogData as WORD, Count(LogData) as WordCount
FROM Table1
Group By LogData;

Hi,

This is thing is called as frequency of words. You better have to create list of tokenes/words from the given text in temp table or in memory table.
then you have to loop/cursor for each token against the text. you can use CharIndex(str1, str2, startIndex) funtion for this.


Thanks.

There is one more way to do this by using group by.
Create List of all tokens and insert into the memory table
Then query the memory table as following:


DECLARE @Tokens TABLE
(
      token  VARCHAR(500)      
)
 
 
 -- add all tokens into @Tokens, for this you can use newline, punctuations and space as delimeter

SELECT token, COUNT(*) AS Frequency
FROM @Tokens  
GROUP BY token
Order by Frequency

Try this

select DATA, COUNT(Data) Cnt from dbo.Split((SELECT LogData AS [data()] FROM tableName FOR XML PATH('')), ' ') group by Data

Open in new window


split function

CREATE FUNCTION dbo.Split
(
	@RowData nvarchar(2000),
	@SplitOn nvarchar(5)
)  
RETURNS @RtnValue table 
(
	Id int identity(1,1),
	Data nvarchar(100)
) 
AS  
BEGIN 
	Declare @Cnt int
	Set @Cnt = 1

	While (Charindex(@SplitOn,@RowData)>0)
	Begin
		Insert Into @RtnValue (data)
		Select 
			Data = ltrim(rtrim(Substring(@RowData,1,Charindex(@SplitOn,@RowData)-1)))

		Set @RowData = Substring(@RowData,Charindex(@SplitOn,@RowData)+1,len(@RowData))
		Set @Cnt = @Cnt + 1
	End
	
	Insert Into @RtnValue (data)
	Select Data = ltrim(rtrim(@RowData))

	Return
END

Here is another option:
declare @Table table (id int identity, LogData varchar(500))

insert into @Table values('Data')
insert into @Table values('Data Mining')
insert into @Table values('Web Mining')
insert into @Table values('Website for data mining')

Select Word, Count(1) Count
  From (
        select l.w.value('.','varchar(20)') Word
        from
        (
         Select cast('<w>' + replace(logdata, ' ', '</w><w>') + '</w>' as xml) as LogData 
           From @Table
        ) as t(Words)
        cross apply Words.nodes('w') l(w)
       ) as words
group by word

Open in new window

Output
Word                 Count
-------------------- -----------
Data                 3
for                  1

Web                  1
Website              1

Try this


select val, COUNT(val) cnt from (
select 
  r.value('.', 'nvarchar(100)') as Val
from (select cast('<r>'+replace((SELECT LogData AS [data()] FROM tableName FOR XML PATH('')), ' ', '</r><r>')+'</r>' as xml)) as x(x)
  cross apply
    x.nodes('r') as r(r)
)t
group by val

For the original question, would you ever need to count the word 'site'? Because "Website" contains 'site', are you concerned that it might be counted? (Or that it might be missed?)
