    Re: No Deal

    Agreed but the exception is the removal of the backstop. That was the major stumbling block last time and is a significant change. This also formally takes the UK (with the exception of Ireland) out...

    Yes. Particularly if the data you're adding is for the current year and not always on the end if the index. The parts of the index that cover the previous years aren't likely to fragment because...

    I think referring to it as a no-deal is unfair. He's brought back a deal which is actually quite an achievement given where we were a week or so ago. Credit where credit is due, all the rhetoric...
  4. Re: SQL - Error when formatting string to date in yyyy-MM-dd

    So you're input is a varchar and you want your output to be a varchar? As I see it that gives you two broad choices.

    I know. Although I feel like it scans better than Nigel No Friends. That might just be familiarity bias though.

    Well, momentum seems to be growing. And Pompeo has accused the Dems of bullying. That's rich.

  23. Re: Scan and compare files in .dat and zip files.

    There's a report button. It takes seconds to use. You certainly have no obligation to use it but it helps us run the forum for you.

    Could do without the snark though.

  27. Re: Scan and compare files in .dat and zip files.

    Fair enough, there's nothing there we'd object to. I'd suggest simply omitting the .dat file as,presumably, they already have it.

    I wasn't aware that there was a smaller file limit to zip files...
