  • My Management Studio wishlist for SQL Server 2011

    Inspired both directly and indirectly by fellow MVP Erland Sommarskog, whose programming wishlist I talked about the other day, I have decided to compile a list of my own wish list items, in the same spirit of, ''it's never too early.''  This list is restricted to issues involving Management Studio; I was going to cover all of ...

  • A little Management Studio "oops"

    For those of you who connect to database servers where you are not in full control over all databases, or where some of your databases are ever offline (or auto-closed), the new version of Management Studio that is shipping with SQL Server 2008 is going to bring you some surprises, when you try to present a list of databases in Object Explorer.It ...

  • 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 ...

  • Connect needs an "Ignored" status

    The SQL team seems to have been quite busy recently, commenting on and closing out many bugs and suggestions that have been raised, I suppose as they close out work on the SQL Server 2008 codebase. Some (like Buck Woody and Bill Ramos, among others) have been very good about commenting that while they can't address the issue(s) for SQL Server ...

  • Registered Servers become more useful

    In playing with the latest CTP for SQL Server 2008, I stumbled across some new context menu items for a server group node in Registered Servers.  You can now right-click a group node and choose options such as ''New Query'' or ''Object Explorer.''  When I first saw the items in the list, I thought it was some kind of bug, because how can ...

  • November CTP : Initial impressions of SSMS changes

    [Updates below in BOLD.]On loading SSMS for the first time, I noticed a few things.  First of all, the row(s) affected message is now prefixed with information on the instance and login relevant to the query execution: As illustrated in the graphic, this information is already available in the status bar.  Why are they spoon-feeding ...

  • Elaborations on my SQL Server 2008 slides

    After attending a few sessions at PASS, based on much newer builds of SQL Server 2008, I have some additional information to complement what I have published in my slides (since I am not scheduled to present the talk further, I am not going to go back and re-vamp the slides every time I find out a new piece of information). One important ...

  • Be careful with Open Table

    Yes, you were already aware of 40 or 50 reasons not to use Open Table.  I have one more.  Say you are creating a table with a composite key that includes a binary column.  An example I came across recently was a table that captures additional data not covered by CDC (e.g. username).  So, I created this table: CREATE TABLE ...
