Building The Raspberry Pi: Conclusion

Raspberry PiThis post is part of the series on building my new Raspberry Pi; this series is a sub-series of the Adventures with a Raspberry Pi.

The Pi-hole is one of the easiest computers I have built; this isn’t that surprising as there are not very many components. The Canakit starter kit is entirely toolless, so building the Pi is just a case of slotting everything together.

This could easily be accomplished by a novice.

SQL Script to Insert Vendors

Microsoft Dynamics GPWhile writing a Rockton Software’s SmartFill product recently, I wanted to do a test on a large dataset. The testing of SmartFill I had done to that point had been on vendors, so I deviced to continue in that vein.

I produced the script below which inserts records into the PM Vendor Master File (PM00200) and PM Address MSTR (PM00300) tables bgy copying an existing vendor, but assigning a unique Vendor ID to each new record. For ease of running, I creaed the script as a stored procedure wic accepts the number of records to create, the vendor to be copied and the new name of the vendor which will be created concatenated with an increasing integer.

-- drop stored proc if it exists
IF OBJECT_ID (N'usp_AZRCRV_CreateTestVendors', N'P') IS NOT NULL
    DROP PROCEDURE usp_AZRCRV_CreateTestVendors
GO

-- create stored proc
CREATE PROCEDURE usp_AZRCRV_CreateTestVendors
	@MaxLoop INT = 5
	,@VendorID VARCHAR(15) = 'BEAUMONT0001'
	,@VendorIDPrefix VARCHAR(8) = 'VEND'
