  • T-SQL Snack: Why Does SSMS Generate Create Scripts With EXEC dbo.sp_executesql?

    Introduction I've been meaning to blog about this for a while and a question from a team member prompted this post (thanks Allan!) SSMS Scripting Options In SSMS you can script a stored procedure - right-click a stored procedure, hover over Script Stored Procedure As, hover over Create To, and select New Query Editor Window:   Sometimes ...

  • Kill your temp tables using keyboard shortcuts : SSMS

    Here’s a nifty little SSMS trick that my colleague Tom Hunter educated me on the other day and I thought it was worth sharing. If you’re a keyboard shortcut junkie then you’ll love it. How often when working with code in SSMS that contains temp tables do you see the following message: Msg 2714, Level 16, State 6, Line 78 There is ...

  • Tools and Processes for “Fitting it all in”

    Most data professionals I’ve met work in two modes: we plan for our day, and we react to the situations around us.

    I have scripts that re-create my databases for testing and development purposes. But sometimes I want to take the data from a set of tables and move it as well – I could use SSIS, or a SELECT INTO statement, but what if I want to “re-set” the data to a point in time? In other words, load it with some “base data”? I thought this might be a good ...

  • Changing the Primary Key After You Have Data

    Yesterday I blogged about changing a Primary Key (PK) during the design phase, and before you have data in the database. Even then, it’s not trivial to change the data type or column(s) that make(s) up the PK. When you have data in that Primary Key and/or you have Foreign Keys (FK) that point to a PK field, this becomes a much more involved ...

  • 2008: Error List in 2008

    Ok, so I was looking around for a blurb about plan guides for my anti ad hoc SQL section of my book (ok, maybe not completely anti- but that isn't the point,) when I found this blog: http://geekswithblogs.net/Sreeblog/articles/117576.aspx that basically just lists some new features in 2008.  One that I hadn't seen I feel the need to ...
