Scott Van Vliet Once a Developer, Always a Developer

Update 2010-03-23 – Sorry, but the images and downloads were hosted on a server that is no longer available.  I will try to find the sample code bits and images on a backup sometime!

As I packed on Saturday for my trip to NYC, (like any smart business traveler) I checked the weekly forecast on Weather.com.  Given my brilliance, I knew to trust that the forecast would be correct - saying that the low for the week would be approx 40 F. 

Of course, I am not brilliant - I am retarded.  It was freakin' 11 F this morning, with windchill bringing the temperature down to around -2 F.  Walking to the client this morning was a quite a shock - it was like someone took a knife to my face and started slicing gently across my skin... BRRRR!  I had been in colder places; however, I had not need to walk to work before.

As for work, I'm converting some monster Crystal Reports to Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services.  Our company has developed a tool (the RDL Generator) that automates part of this process - and thank goodness for the tool!  It's made the process much easier, copying all groups and fields over to the appropriate RDL elements.

You'll hear more from me soon.  In the mean time, enjoy the photo entitled, "Skillet, Frozen in NYC".

Jerry,
<br>
<br>Thanks for the post. I checked out the tool you mentioned, and it looks pretty cool. However, the tool that I am using will convert 3rd Party Report formats (such as Crystal Reports) to RDL.
<br>
<br>Thanks!
