  • Sometimes it’s the little things...

    The easiest way to convince someone to use SSMS 2008 over SSMS 2005 was to right-click on a results grid. They’d see “Copy with Headers” in the context menu and be sold immediately. I’d happily show them that they could configure this option in SSMS 2005, but to have it immediately available in SSMS 2008 was enough to convince many people to ...

  • Denali’s Management Studio for CTP3 playing nice with others (almost)

    Until recently, I’d only done stuff with Denali on a dedicated box. But this weekend, I took the plunge and installed SSMS on a machine that has older versions of SQL Server installed on it. You can download Denali from this link. I’ve only installed the tools – I haven’t installed the Database Engine, Analysis Services, and so on. It’s more that ...

  • Drillthrough for #BISM Tabular and attribute keys in #SSAS #Denali

    In an Analysis Services cube you can define drillthrough actions on a cube. This feature has been working since SQL 2005 and now it will be available in both BISM Multidimensional and BISM Tabular in the next version of SQL Server “Denali”. In the current CTP3 you can already use the drillthrough on a Tabular model: by default, all the columns of ...

  • Taking SQL Server Code Name Denali Beyond Relational in CTP3

    Over the last couple of months the SQL engineering team has been busy preparing SQL Server Code Name “Denali” CTP3. As part of that effort, I have been driving the Beyond Relational scenario, that is adding some useful, cool and in some cases long awaited capabilities to SQL Server in the context of managing unstructured data and spatial data ...

  • SQL Server v.Next (Denali) : CTP3 T-SQL Enhancements : FORMAT()

    As its name implies, the FORMAT() function was added to Denali in CTP3 to make formatting easier. For the purists, all formatting should be done at the presentation layer. For the rest of us, we know that our users and developers consuming our stored procedures expect us to be able to return data exactly how they want it presented. For years, ...

  • SQL Server v.Next (Denali) : Changes to system objects in CTP3

    If you have access to both a CTP3 instance and a CTP1 instance, and the CTP3 instance can see the CTP1 instance, you can run all of these queries simply by creating a linked server on the CTP3 instance that references the CTP1 instance (and be sure to run in the context of master). I named this linked server ''OlderCTP'' so you will see that ...

  • Some Upcoming Presentations

    Introduction I just looked at the calendar and Wow! I have a lot of presentations and pre-cons coming up in the next few months.

Week-Long Presentations 17-21 ...

  • Parent-child special calculations in #BISM #Tabular #Denali

    Alberto Ferrari published an interesting blog post regarding how to write particular calculations over a parent-child hierarchy in PowerPivot Denali (and in BISM Tabular, of course). One case is the Sum of Leaves (summing only the leaves of a parent-child hierarchy) and the other is the Sum of Children (computes all the nodes that are descendants ...

  • Change default workspace and deployment server in #Tabular #SSAS #Denali #CTP3

    When you install Analysis Services Denali, chances are that you create an instance for Tabular that is not the default instance for Analysis Services. When you try to create a Tabular project, you might get the following error: You cannot open the BIM file. Reason: The workspace database server ‘localhost’ was not found. Verify that there is ...
