    Hi Kobus,

    Did you see http://blog.ola.hallengren.com/blog/_archives/2008/1/1/3440068

    apart from the special scheduling (2:00 to 8:00) it looks as if it has more features than your procedure.

    Best regards,

    i have learned quite a bit since that post...it was 2 months ago...:):)

    the most important thing that i leared was that you almost canot defrag a 2000 database on a 2000 SQL server, interestingly when we moved the database, the fragmentation was very high..i db reindexed it on 2005 with alter table and then did the magic bit...sp_updatestatistics...now i just manualy(via a shedule job) run sp_updatestatistics once a day...overkill but still...weird wonderfull world of windows...

    Kobus,

    Are you saying that running sp_updatestatistics manually "sorts things out"?

    I must try that.

    TIA

    Which is why some people are driven to write their own. 😉

    @Kobus,

    That does bring up something important though. The article text says "2 to 4" but the code is actually setup for "2 to 8". If you have this code in production, that may cause you a problem sometime in the future.

    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.

    When you put the right degree of spin on it, the number 3|8 is also a glyph that describes the nature of a DBAs job. 😉
