  • Is There Such a Thing as Easy ETL?

    E.T.L. That's Extract - Transform - Load. That doesn't sound like a lot of work when all you need to get loaded is a simple Access database or an Excel spreadsheet. In a situation like that, the process is so simple, all you really need to focus on is the L in ETL. There's not a whole lot of E.T. to process, despite how wonderful that movie ...

  • Top Tools I Didn’t Know I Needed as a DBA

    Today’s post is an unabashedly subjective plug for a bunch of unrelated tools I have come to rely on and love. I’m not really a “tools guy,” so there are no doubt better and worse tools for these tasks out there. I’m not affiliated with any of the vendors or authors.

  • Database Maintenance Scripting Done Right

    I first wrote about useful database maintenance scripts on my SQLBlog account way back in 2008.

But I digress... Anyway, I pointed out a couple ...

  • Azure, a Beautiful Color, and So Much More...

    Windows and SQL Azure Resources Cloud computing is more than just the latest buzz word in the IT trade papers. It is a remarkable paradigm shift with as much potential to ''turn over the apple cart'' of IT computing as client-server had for the world of mainframe and minicomputers. If you're not spending time to learn about cloud computing, ...

  • My Last "Catch-Up" Post for 2010 Content

    I did a lot of writing in 2010. Unfortunately, I didn't do a good job of keeping all of that writing equally distributed throughout all of the channels where I'm active. So here are a few more posts from my blog, put on-line during the months of November and December 2010, that I didn't get posted here on SQLBlog.com: 1. It's Time to ...

  • Another bugfix for sp_indexinfo

    JackMcC reported correctly at http://sqlblog.com/blogs/tibor_karaszi/archive/2009/02/18/sp-indexinfo-updated.aspx that sp_indexinfo will count rows double (or even tripple) if there are lob or row overflow allocations. Now fixed. Thanks Jack.
