I know I do not often post coding things here, but this is a real helper and something that seems so new and has been around for a while. Basically the challenge to a database developer is to get all the business needs in one set list of variables that always seem to be changing. The problem is you create one stored procedure and each time you have to change it you have to go and find everywhere that it is now used. Now you can import your parameters as an xml of parameters which means you don’t need to change anything, except maybe the stored procedure to cater for the new changes. What a great idea.
