For some time, other DBMSs such as Oracle, Sybase and DB2 have had support for window functions. SQL Server has had only a partial implementation up to now. SQL Server 2012 enhances support for windows aggregate function by introducing windows order and frame clause, support for offset functions, and support for distribution function. In this article I will show you advanced use of those function. The interesting thing is that the examples were taken from other RDBMS (ORACLE, SYBASE). Also I will demonstrate what is still missing and needed in SQL SERVER 2012 and how I would accept Microsoft to implement it, in next version Maybe.

This article is accompanied by the script fast_transition_to_mssql_2012.sql  which demonstrates Programmability Enhancements (Database Engine) SQL 2012   as well as the material covered in this article.
