And it is available today. Microsoft released SQL Server 2005 SP2.
Rumor has it we're going to see SP2 for SQL Server 2005 later today.
Recently I was writing an import in SSIS and needed to use a ASCII 127 as delimiter. I know you can type a custom delimiter into SSIS but ASCII 127 is the delete character. Steve Kass reminded me that SSIS' .dtsx files are just giant XML files and easy to edit. It was as simple as changing this line:
<DTS:Property DTS:Name="ColumnDelimiter" xml:space="preserve">_x007F_</DTS:Property>
007F is the hex code for ASCII 127. Thanks Steve!
