It was very helpful.By the way... I`m looking for a code to view recent T-SQL that was executed. Just like SQL Profiler but I want to incorporate it in my application. Do you know how to do that or where can I find further help ?Thanks !Doron.Wed, 02 Jun 2010 23:29:40 GMTdoronyaaryFinding Ratio between two numbershttp://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic931786-2709-1.aspxComments posted to this topic are about the item [B]<A HREF="/scripts/SQL/70395/">Finding Ratio between two numbers</A>[/B]Wed, 02 Jun 2010 20:11:36 GMTSite Owners
