SQL Server jobs are an integral part of any SQL Server environment. These jobs run a predefined set of tasks and commands at specified intervals, ensuring the database is up-to-date and performing optimally. As a database administrator, it is essential to regularly monitor the status of SQL Server jobs. One way to do this is by using T-SQL to generate an HTML report of the SQL Server job status.
In this article, Nisarg Upadhyay will explore how to create an HTML report of SQL Server job status using T-SQL. T-SQL is a powerful programming language that enables administrators to automate repetitive tasks and manage the SQL Server environment more efficiently.
The April 2023 release of Power BI desktop introduced a new preview feature called dynamic format strings for measures. This allows us to return values with different formats from the same measure. Previously, we needed to create calculation groups (usually by using Tabular Editor) to accomplish this. But now it is built in to Power BI Desktop. Meagan Longoria walks the talk.
For many years Power BI Desktop users have been able to configure and modify aspects of their data models in the model view. However, these model view capabilities have been specific to Desktop with no additional data model view or edit support in Service. Now, Microsoft introduces data model editing in the Service, allowing Service users a first step towards viewing and modifying their existing data models on the web. In this preview you can modify your existing data models on the web through actions such as editing relationships, creating DAX measures, and managing row-level security (RLS). Emily Lisa gets you going!
