--Jeff Moden

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.
Although they tell us that they want it real bad, our primary goal is to ensure that we dont actually give it to them that way.
Although change is inevitable, change for the better is not.
Just because you can do something in PowerShell, doesnt mean you should. Wink

    Excellent article. A problem that i have never come across but may do. The train of thought on the problem was insightful.

    That, good sir, is why I didn't simply submit this as a script. Understanding why this works may lead someone to doing something even better.

    Thank you for the feedback.

    Everything is right, but there are and other ways how to make your code bullet proof.

    Thanks for the insight. Would you post some code for said bullet proofing? Thanks.

    When I went to review this spackle, I found the current rating was "Good". Can't agree. Jeff has, as usual, taken a problem of some import, broken it down into easily digestible steps, provided excellent explanations, and written pretty code to show how to solve it.

    Can I get an "Excellent" people?

    Thanks Jeff. I want to be you someday when I grow up. If I decide it's worth growing up. ;-)

    Please don't go. The drones need you. They look up to you.
