Workflow Constraints (Logical OR)

To do some of the stuff we wanted in SQL Server 2000 DTS we had put together some serious glue code and to be honest it wasn't pretty. One of the things that we used to have to do this way was if we wanted to implement using workflow constraints a Logical OR. Well that has changed and it is now really simple and this article is going to show you how to implement it.

This article is going to show you how to take values from a source table and for every row execute a stored procedure which inserts values into another table.

SQL Server 2005 Partitioned Tables and Indexes

Although partitioning tables and indexes has always been a design tactic chosen to improve performance and manageability in larger databases, Microsoft SQL Server 2005 has new features that simplify the design. This whitepaper describes the logical progression from manually partitioning data by creating your own tables to the preliminary features, which enabled partitioning through views in SQL Server 7.0 and SQL Server 2000, to the true partitioned table features available in SQL Server 2005. In SQL Server 2005, the new table-based partitioning features significantly simplify design and administration of partitioned tables while continuing to improve performance.

WebService - Enabling SQL Server 2005 Procedures

One of the most interesting features that I'll explore is that you can now create WebServices in the database tier directly, without resorting to "add ons" or even the use of IIS at all. One of the many extensions to Transact SQL is the new CREATE ENDPOINT statement, which allows the developer to create an endpoint directly from SQL Server 2005, which hooks right into the Kernel Mode HTTP.SYS driver, exposing functions and stored procedures written either in T-SQL or native CLR methods/classes.

However, we also use this instance for QA and already have a database named Finance. How do I configure the AG to use a different database as the secondary?
