SQL Swimmer

I started out as a software developer back in 1996 in Denver, CO, doing Client/Server development in PowerBuilder. I am now a Data Architect, living in High Point, NC and I love what I do. I’ve worked with all versions of SQL Server since the infamous split from the Sybase code (a.k.a. version 4.21a). I’ve worn all the hats that come with dealing with SQL Server, developer to data architect and everything in between. Twitter handle: @SQLSwimmer

Using the Analysis Services Execute DDL Task

My grandfather used to say, “There’s more than one way to skin a cat.”  I always thought it was a disgusting saying, I mean who would ever want to “skin a cat”?!  Gross!  But the underlying meaning was clear, there’s always more than one way to do something.  And no… Read more
