    I'm all for CI. We're trying to crack that nut in a complex system with many moving parts. One thing you mentioned is that customers may expect new features sooner...

    An idea: Apply this on Friday afternoon after lunch, when you're probably not going to accomplish much in-the-box work anyway.

  • RE: Consolidate or Decompose

    I knew there'd be much missing in my description.

    I think I'd vote with Todd and have an actual dates table that gets built out for the next few years because what about holidays that don't fall on the...

  • RE: Looping through Databases to fix orphaned users

    There is an undocumented procedure called sp_msforeachdb that might do the trick. I've reinitialized user before but it was a one time thing so I scripted it all out and...

  • RE: Function without cursor

    This is my stab at it. It doesn't do RBAR (unless unpivot does something behind the scenes I don't know about) and it doesn't do any kind of looping. I...

  • RE: Function without cursor

    Hi Vijay. I have a couple of questions.
