  • RE: Overlapping Exams

    Hi,
     I did the 70-461 exam last year and I found it hard (not difficult per se, just a lot to remember). It took me the better part of a year...

  • RE: Pulling the Plug

    Isn't this the purpose of pre-defined success/failure requirements? This project shall be deemed a success when these criteria are met and a failure when these requirements are met.

  • RE: Versatile or Jack of all trades

  • RE: Fun with Dates and Times

  • RE: Loading CSV Files Using Dynamic SQL

    Hi Jeff,
    I will indeed read up on it.
    Thanks for the very prompt reply,
    Sean.

  • RE: Loading CSV Files Using Dynamic SQL

    I'm preparing a pilot-study on Full-Text Search and this script will go part of the way towards it. The extended procedure master.dbo.xp_DirTree will be useful anyway.
