Just to nitpick something. The adventureworks sales were understated by ~ $22M, not $28M.;-)


Nice article Dave.

Thank you.

I understand the topic of optimizing a cursor based routine pretty well and yet again another day comes where I learn how much more I have to learn. I can't wait to try out some of these techniques on some more complex reports!

Very nice article. We have very few cursors but I have learned other performance improving tips from this article regardless.

Dave, excellent job with the post! Very informative and good example to demo the technology.

Big Question: Where can I find the AdventureWorks2008R2 database?

I was running it against the AdventureWorks database but some of the columns/tables are missing....

I have downloaded almost everything off codeplex, and I have found these databases:

1) adventureworks
2) adventureworksDW
3) adventureworksDW2008
4) adventureworksDW2008R2
5) adventureworksLT
6) adventureworksLT2008R2

But no database named "AdventureWorks2008R2"?
