Although my recent series was of MDX posts, ending with A Gentle Introduction to Sets, was intended merely to be an introduction to MDX, and not a full-fledged course, I have a few more things to share with you! I had hoped I could wrap it up last week. As it turns out, I needed the entire week to finish a chapter for the Introducing Microsoft SQL Server 2012 book.

Compounding the delay is the fact that I’m currently in my remote Alaskan home and the Internet situation is still getting ironed out. It has taken me over 20 minutes just to get this simple little explanation post put out there for you. (It’s PAINfully slow, but at least I have a beautiful view while I wait!) Besides, you should be doing something else as the year winds down! I promise there will be more to come. Either as soon as my Internet speeds up or when I get back to the mainland – whichever comes first!

Wishing you a very Happy New Year!
