There's a simple reason of why would I do this on the front end. Formatting totals and subtotals is a lot simpler that way.


If the front-end code has capabilities similar to the Matrix capabilites of SSRS, I'd agree. But even then, it's good to know how to do these types of things in T-SQL because a front end doesn't always have the capability to do it easily and, sometimes, there is no front end to be had.

It's also a heck of a lot easier to deploy and maintain than managed code.

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

Totally agree. The best tool to do something is defined by the situation and it's good to know all the alternatives.
