One major stumbling block is data that looks like a number or a date, but is stored as text.
These are difficult to query and get the desired results. A common example: if ACRES is a text field, a query like
will not return any parcels where ACRES=2 because, alphabetically, "2" is greater than "10" or even "1000000". You can try a query like
CAST(ACRES AS FLOAT)<10
which might work, but if there is any non-numeric data in that field (like "10.0AC"), the query will fail. Then you could try
(CHARINDEX('AC',ACRES)>1) AND (CAST(LEFT(ACRES,CHARINDEX('AC',ACRES)-1) as FLOAT)<10)
but any inconsistency in the data will thwart that also, and the required knowedge of both the raw data and SQL quickly goes far beyond the scope of this document.
