  • Update for Books Online with functioning index (2016)

    Good news, everybody! Microsoft recently released an update for the local Books Online, with a functioning index for the relational engine. Earlier versions were missing those index bits, but not for everyone (a theory is that it depends on what server you hit when you downloaded the BOL bits).

Navigating the contents, switching between pages and searching is lightyears ahead and quicker in the local BOL. (Update: Added bits about the missing ...

  • Getting a functional Books Online

    As you probably know, the SQL Server Documentation (aka Books Online or BOL) as of SQL Server 2012 takes us to a web-site. Searching and navigating a web-site when you want rapid and precise help is a horrible experience. Fortunately, there's still a local BOL.Unfortunately, the local BOL for SQL Server 2014 has been broken for a long ...

  • Yes, you can install SQL Server 2014 Books Online locally

    Update 2014-08-01: Below I mention that the T-SQL and XQuery references were not available locally with the initial release; they have now been provided (see this post for more details). I've seen people complain that SQL Server 2014 did not ship with documentation you could install locally. While true, it is just because the publication ...
