hi all,

Does anyone have a way to list the features installed on an instance? At present all i can find is looking at the install log. I was hoping there might be a nice easy way with T-SQL?

fingers crossed!!

Under All Programs/Microsoft SQL Server 2008/Configuration Tools

run: SQL Server Installation Center

Then select Tools/Installed SQL Server features discovery report

My mantra: No loops! No CURSORs! No RBAR! Hoo-uh!

My thought question: Have you ever been told that your query runs too fast?

My advice:
INDEXing a poor-performing query is like putting sugar on cat food. Yeah, it probably tastes better but are you sure you want to eat it?
The path of least resistance can be a slippery slope. Take care that fixing your fixes of fixes doesn't snowball and end up costing you more than fixing the root cause would have in the first place.

Need to UNPIVOT? Why not CROSS APPLY VALUES instead?
Since random numbers are too important to be left to chance, let's generate some!
Learn to understand recursive CTEs by example.
Splitting strings based on patterns can be fast!
