  • A potted SSIS history via Connect

    Yesterday I received a notification that one of my submissions to http://connect.microsoft.com had received a comment. Nothing unusual about that, I receive those sorts of emails every day, on this occasion however the comment was actually worth reading. The comment was from SSIS development guru Jeff Bernhardt (he has changed job titles recently ...

  • A couple of issues you might have noticed on Connect

    The Cupboards are Bare Over the weekend, and hopefully due to an event unrelated to April Fools' Day, you may have noticed that most or all of your Connect items have disappeared. At least for the SQL Server connection, you will see items that have been created since Friday, a couple of test items created in 2009 and 2010, and then everything ...

  • Connect Digest : 2011-03-26

  • Have SSIS' differing type systems ever caused you problems?

    One thing that has always infuriated me about SSIS is the fact that every package has three different type systems; to give you an idea of what I am talking about consider the following: The SSIS dataflow's type system is made up of types called DT_*  (e.g. DT_STR, DT_I4) The SSIS variable type system is based on .Net datatypes (e.g. ...

  • Connect Digest : 2011-03-12

    Background Last year, I came to a very tough decision that I would cease publicizing Connect items in an attempt to drive up votes and get important issues fixed. This was almost entirely due to a couple of MVPs criticizing me for raising awareness of certain Connect items instead of letting them be found ''naturally.'' I wasn't sure what world ...

  • My first few minutes with SQL Azure

    I've finally decided to play a little with SQL Azure. I have to say, my first few minutes have been less than fantastic. When I go to http://sql.azure.com/ this is what I see: It seems that I don't have an invitation code, so I guess I'll sign up for the mailing list down at the bottom, and try to get one.  Only problem is, when the link ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday #14: Resolutions

    This month, T-SQL Tuesday is being hosted by freshly minted MVP Jen McCown (blog | twitter), and her topic is ''Resolutions!''  I already gave a rough sort of overview on my goals for 2011, but I thought I would be able to dig a little deeper with enough relevance to participate.  So with that in mind, and with a goal of not setting ...

  • A better way to search Connect

    I recently spotted a comment from Microsoft on a Connect item with 13 total up-votes.  The comment went something like, ''wow, due to the explosive response to this issue, we're going to deal with it right away.''  Okay, it wasn't that emphatic, it was actually: ''I've brought the MVP customer vote count to the attention of dev, and a ...

    SQL Server 2000's SET IDENTITY_INSERT ON topic says: Execute permissions default to the sysadmin fixed server role, and the db_owner and db_ddladmin fixed database roles, and the object owner. While the SET IDENTITY_INSERT topic for SQL Server 2005 (and up) says: User must own the object, or be a member ...

  • [OT] : An open blog post to bit.ly

    I am not sure when it happened, but at some point, bit.ly marked all URLs to connect.microsoft.com as dangerous.  So for example, I created this shortened link http://bit.ly/fKKQPT which just goes to http://connect.microsoft.com/sql/.  When you click on the shortened link, you get the following warning (click to ...
