Finally back from Seattle where I was attending the Pass Summit 2011 conference last week.

As always, we have seen some announcements relating to SQL Server made by Microsoft during the key notes, among which a few official namings was revealed :

  • SQL Server codename Denali has now officially become SQL Server 2012 and will be released in the first half of next year.
  • SQL Server codename Crescent will be named Power Viewer
  • SQL Server codename Project Juneau will become SQL Server Data Tools

Getting help choosing the right chart type in Excel

As a follow-up to my previous post depicting a flow chart for choosing which type of chart can better emphasize our reporting needs, I dig up an Excel add in intending to help you in this task.

Published by Microsoft Office labs, the Chart Advisor add in for Excel “identifies, ranks, and displays an array of charts most relevant to you so you
can make the most out of your presentation.”

Though not very new (it was first published in may 2010), it’s worse mentioning it for those of you who may not have been aware of its existence. One last word to say that there is no Office 2010 version, it only works with Office 2007.
