Does SQL 2014 still support "Quirky Update" ? or is this hole sealed with "QuickFix" ? Smile

So far I have no reason to believe the quirky update is gone. And I don't think it will dissapear soon.

With SQL Server 2012, there is no longer need for the Quirky update, since the windowed functions supports window framing.

No-one knows, because SQL Server 2014 has not been released yet. It may work in CTP 1 (I haven't tried it) but anything could happen between now and RTM. As Peter says, there is little need for it since SQL Server 2012 has direct support for running totals (and the like) using syntax like:

SELECT 
SUM(some_value) OVER (
PARTITION BY some_thing
ORDER BY some_id
ROWS BETWEEN UNBOUNDED PRECEDING AND CURRENT ROW)
FROM SomeTable;
