Great Inca - send your wishes to firstname.lastname@example.org It does get read ! They will take more notice if you include business reasons for you you want certain functionality and how it would help you as a developer. You will more than likely not get a response however all the developers get the mail from sqlwish.
I'll try that on the crosstab join to a table. ADO and sp_ExecuteSQL don't always get along though (to put it on a web page), but I'm sure I can at least get it to work in QA to make a CSV. It takes brian hours to manually 'join' the 2 reports together into 1 result set in Excel (Not all members fill out a survey; some members have filled out a survey but are no longer active; the survey results is crosstabbed).
Oh yeah I'll send that big post to that email address. In the past I'v always gotten a reply but usually saying that I needed to start a tech support incident, which isn't cheap without a contract.
I want to assure you that is not the case, everyone's opinion about the SQL Server is listened to and assesed, the best forum for that is to send mail to email@example.com. Mail to this account goes in the inboxes of the SQL Server Leadership team and is also stored in a system that allows requests to be reviewed at any time, by any member of the team. You will probably not get an answer other than automated but we do read the mail.

quote: I would but microsoft tend to only care for people who pays them thousands of dollars for tech support contracts. I'm very happy with my new server that I stayed up until 4am last night to move the database too. 8 36Gig SCSI drives in raid 0+1, 4 P3 Xeons, 4 gigs ram and it takes up 4 Us on the rack. I think the thousands of dollars is better spent on my new server than with fighting with microsoft.
