Dugi, thanks for the kudo but it's not mine alone... take a look at the "credits" on that thing... lots of folks had some great ideas that improved the great idea that Itzik originally came up with.
Oh... and you may actually have a "bad" copy if you copied the code earlier, Dugi. Much to my mortification, I originally posted an old copy that still had the "word" Cross-Join in one of the comments that the "stone wall" called me out on. I put the correct copy up now.
As a side bar, I really need to spend some time organizing my code snippets.
I'm talking about this thread and talking about just inside the problem where you post the best solution that you can do! I know also the other that are in your same level of T-SQL Mastering and I appreciate your help!
Heh... I stand corrected. Thanks for the compliment, Dugi. Always appreciated.
Jason, thank you as well.

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.
