Finally, you can save parameters in SSRS – by CiQuest Lab.


Many users are asking if there is a way to save parameters on SSRS reports. The answer is always not attractive.
Some people proposed a way to save your “last entry” in a table – well, that’s a good start, but with restrictions.

And the solution is coming, follow us and check back later~

Cursor or not ?

SQL Server Cursor is a long existing function Microsoft provides. However, its performance is always being discussed (most discussion is poor performance in Cursor). If that’s the case, it’s about time to prove it and see if there is an alternative.

[Creative] The 13F – Elevator (Part 1)

時間過的很快, 轉眼就是一年多.
Rex今天有幸提早下班. 搭Path回去轉Light Rail, 不到一小時就到家了.
衝了個澡後, 終於能夠在家裡吃晚餐. 想著等一下跟Eric以及其他朋友約在樓下交誼廳聊天

“8:30”, replied by Eric
“OK, will be there”

換上Polo衫, Rex出門等電梯下樓

“奇怪, 怎麼這麼久電梯都不來?” (心想)
