Nice job Theo;
I had created a procedure to check the current patch version,all available patch version, and the suggested Service pack version, but it used an internally contained CTE full of static values from the last time I downloaded and formatted that information.
If I can twist my proc around to use your table, I'll post it so you can add it to your solution.
--help us help you! If you post a question, make sure you include a CREATE TABLE... statement and INSERT INTO... statement into that table to give the volunteers here representative data. with your description of the problem, we can provide a tested, verifiable solution to your question! asking the question the right way gets you a tested answer the fastest way possible!
