RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair

Wow. Both articles are awesome. Not only is your code well documented (as usual), but the charts were also extremely useful in helping to explain the text. Well done and thanks for taking the time to really explain the methods.

Jeff - Working through it now but its pretty deep and I expect it will take me awhile.

Great explanations though!

I'm going to try to see if I can adapt the approach to another problem I encountered recently that is "not quite" a hiearchy.

Let me know if you decide to change your name to John. I have several article attributions to you I'll need to change.:-D


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!

Thanks, Dwain. I'd be interested in your "not quite a hierarchy" problem. Sounds interesting.

Heh... nah. Not going to change my name. Too much paper work for us all. :-D
