Thanks a lot..

Thank you so much.

Please note on page 18, Figure 1-8, the in place upgrade illustration incorrectly identifies Server 1 as Server 2… should still be Server 1 should it not?

Please ignore my previous comment, just noticed that Figure 1-8 and 1-9 seem to be mixed up.

Obrigado Microsoft! Com certeza aprenderemos como utilizar melhor o SQL Server,

No hay en español????

Thanks you so much, perfect book. i´m really appreciated

Nice share 🙂 Thanks.

Thanks a lot!!

Everybody, Ross Mistry has verified that Mark is correct: Figure 1-8 and Figure 1-9 are out of order. Figure 1-8 should be Figure 1-9, and Figure 1-9 should be Figure 1-8. Thanks for the catch, Mark!

Thanks for the freebie. I'm looking forward to downloading the Kindle version on or after 3/23/2012.
