"Solution Explorer Window The Solution Explorer window is visible in the upper-right portion of Figure 5-4. Just as Windows Explorer provides a hierarchical view of the Windows file system, the Solution Explorer window in SQL Server Data Tools provides a hierarchical view of your solution and the projects it contains. Both Windows Explorer and the Solution Explorer window use a tree view to let us navigate the hierarchical structure. We can browse through our solution to find and open any item it contains." (Chapter 5)


I used the Solution Explorer Window to find and open the cube I was studying and its corresponding data source view and data source. CR: 2018-11-23 18:38:44 LU: 2018-11-23 18:38:44

Solution Explorer Window


"Task List Window The Task List window can be opened from the View menu. This window provides a convenient place for us to make note of to-do items for this solution. We can assign priorities that are signified by the exclamation point (high priority), blank (normal priority), and down arrow (low priority). When items are completed, they can be checked off. Completed items are displayed with a strike-through." (Chapter 5)


This SQL Server Data Tools feature made me remember that Gmail also offers the Tasks feature to create and keep track of to-do items. I started to use this Tasks Gmail feature for work related tasks (using my account) and for personal or freelancing tasks (using my account). CR: 2018-12-11 17:05:27 LU: 2018-12-11 17:05:27
