Anyone else feel uncomfortable answering this question?


Not at all. I'd give a range for my company, rather than specifics, but no reason not to get an idea of salary. I'd qualify it with experience.

Probably posted by someone who's either new or who's considering getting certified and wants concrete answers of how it'll impact their salary. The trouble is that there is no direct correlation that I know of, but I'm not MSCE certified. Certifiable? That's another discussion.

Brings back baaaad memories and resulting nightmares, when marketing, MIS, CRM teams etc. think there is a contained formula for email validation when there isn't. Back in the old days one used to use finger, cannot even remember how long a go that generally stopped working, guess I'm getting stravecchio

I really must be getting jaded. I get chastised for not being able to figure out what some ones uncommented and convoluted code on a blog does, and then I see someone who can't understand what a DISTINCT is for in a select statement in an OPENQUERY.

No, Lynn. Isn't the reason painfully obvious? It's the crystal ball. Wherever it is, you clearly needed it. On the serious side, though, I can't read other people's minds either.

I just hope I don't become one of the people who post an answer and forget to answer the original question. I've come close a couple of times and I've also read things into the OP that weren't actually there, where if I hadn't applied said restriction, it would have made the solution so much easier and faster.
