Order BY Not Working in SQL Server Functions | Quickie

Ever created a function and needed to include the Order By clause. It would result in the following error being loaded:

The problem is that to use, it requires a TOP clause or FOR XML. By if you specify TOP 100, you’ll only get the first 100 rows. You can specify a big number that you might think will never exceed. But what if you do? The best bet is to use TOP 100 PERCENT.

This will get you all the rows and works in Functions.

Div OnClick instead of a href | Quickie

Instead of using the “<a href=” tag to go to another page, you can use the “<div onclick=” to be transferred to another page. This is extremely useful if you have a lot of text and pictures that need to be clicked anywhere wanted. Next is the html code to achieve this:

<div id="div_id" onclick="window.location = 'Your reference here'>
Your text here
</div>

Hope this Quickie was of help 😉
