  • Comparing Standard Editions of SQL Server

    Recently, I've been speaking with customers about upgrading SQL Server.  At times, some customers have a lot of Standard Edition  SQL Server 2005 / 2008 / 2008R2 in their organization and they want to see the features they get when upgrading to SQL Server 2012.  Last week, I sent out some tweets to the #sqlhelp hashtag to see if ...

  • Rick Review: SQLTeach - SQL345 - 10-Mar-2010 - Kimberly Tripp

  • This Year's SQL Christmas Card

    This year's Christmas Card is similar to last year's.  I used the geometry data type again for a spatial data design.  Just download the attachment, unzip the .SQL script and run it in SSMS.  Then look at the Spatial Data preview tab for the result. Also don't forget to visit http://www.noradsanta.org/ if your kids want to ...

  • Here Comes the FY11 Earmarks Database

    I'm really interested in politics (don't worry, I'm not going to start bashing politicians and hammering you with political rage).  The point is when the U.S. FY11 Omnibus Spending Bill (the bill to fund the U.S. Government for another year) was announced it piqued my interest.  I'm fascinated by ''earmarks'' (also ...

  • Try-N-Save SSIS Packages

    The Try-N-Save SSIS Packages from my SSIS Dimensional Data Optimization presentation are available at http://cid-8f7e6c950afc6b3e.office.live.com/self.aspx/.Public/Presentation/TryNSave.zip. I'm still working on getting the sample database uploaded - even compressed a backup is larger than SkyDrive's upload filesize limit. I'll script it out when ...

  • Dynamic SQL and Late Binding

    We all know that dynamic SQL runs in its own scope (see here for details), and that if used improperly it can have serious security implications.  But it's also important to realize that dynamic SQL evaluates your SQL statements more like a stored procedure than a regular script.  In stored procedures, if the tables you reference ...
