 GilaMonster (12/11/2012)CptCrusty1 (12/11/2012)Gail, I once asked you why you're called Gila Monster. Old story.GailGilaNotice the letter ordering. Now add a friend with a mild typing problem (typed faster with her right hand than her left) and you have a nickname.A perplexing enigma now demystified. 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!
