  • SQL Server 2008R2 / 2012 Standard & Backup Compression

    This is something that is totally overlooked, in my experience, with SQL Server 2008 R2 and SQL Server 2012. On the contrary to what happens with SQL Server 2008, the Standard version of SQL Server 2008R2 & SQL Server 2012 supports backup compression: SQL Server 2008 R2 BOL ...

  • Trapping SQL Server Errors with Extended Events

    One very useful usage of Extended Events is the ability to trap SQL Server error without the need to have a server trace running (which, btw, is deprecated), with the additional feature of being able to query the data as soon as it comes in.

  • Forcing “Custom Properties” of a Data Flow Transformation to support DTS Expression

    Today I was using a 3rd Party Data Flow component that has several Custom Properties for which I need to change some of their values at runtime using a DTS Expression.

  • Power Pivot SQL Agent Job Monitor

    In the last days I needed a quick and efficient way to monitor the performance of a job and of each step over time. There’s a lot of interesting data in MSDB database and the various sysjob tables, but the stored data is not really easy to use outside the Management Studio. Date and Time are not stored as date/time data type, there is no easy way ...

  • PASS Summit Preconference and Sessions

    I’m very pleased to announce that I’ll be delivering a Pre-Conference at PASS Summit 2012. I’ll speak about Business Intelligence again (as I did in 2010) but this time I’ll focus only on Data Warehouse, since it’s big topic even alone.

  • REPLACENULL in SSIS 2012

    While preparing my slides e demos for the forthcoming SQL Server Conference 2012 in Italy, I’ve come across a nice addition to DTS Expression language which I never noticed before and that seems unknown also to the blogosphere: REPLACENULL. REPLACENULL is the same of ISNULL in T-SQL. It’s *very* useful especially when loading a fact table of your ...
