Thanks for the post, Steve. Interesting one.
(never used this at all. Sometimes I really wonder will I ever get a chance in real-world to use such features? Or, just refer BOL, run respective feature script and play a bit...!!!? All these features are like huge collection of books in the library, not all can read entire collection but some read only what we have to.... In SQL 2000 I hardly used 10 -15% of its power... SQL 2016 is out and I don't even have 40% hands-on experience even on SQL 2008R2... :w00t: This is one of those days not to lose your cool... 🙂 😀 )
The first and the hardest SQL statement I have wrote- "select * from customers" - and I was happy and felt smart.
