Recently I got a call from an old friend I used to call “DJ”. Here is the exact conversation we had about SQLCMD.
I had previously penned down two popular snippets regarding deleting duplicate rows and counting duplicate rows. Today, we will examine another very quick code snippet where we will delete duplicate rows using CTE and ROW_NUMBER() feature of SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2008.
A day before I wrote article SQL SERVER – sqlcmd vs osql – Basic Comparison. Today while I was displaying how sqlcmd can be used instead of osql to one of my companies team leader, I found another neat feature of SSMS Query Editor. sqlcmd can be used from Query Editor but it has to be enabled first.
