Yes indeed.

It appears the force is not with me this morning, oh master.



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!

I try not to look to closely at the threads I post to... All that information overwhelms me.

Thought this was the bi-polar thread! Shows how off my game I am.

Looking at it now and I see what you mean. I saw what you posted just didn't run it. Interesting result.
