Congratulations to the Winners of TSQL Challenge 13!
TSQL Challenge #13 was really interesting and several participants mentioned that they really enjoyed solving the problem. We received a large number of solutions, almost all of them were correct and well written. It was very interesting to see how many different ways exist to solve a given problem using TSQL. The evaluation team spent a lot of time testing each solution and finally came up with the three winning solutions.
The challenge is to break a batch of invoices into groups that are not more than 10 rows, without splitting a single invoice into two groups. See the challenge description for the details of this challenge.
And the Winners are …
Here are the winners of TSQL Challenge #13.
In addition to the regular winning solutions, we would like to present a "featured solution" by Brad Schulz from TSQL Challenge Team. Brad presents a very interesting solution which performs as good as the other solutions, but handles a number of exceptional cases which are not included in the sample data provided with the challenge.
Please join the TSQL Challenge Team to congratulate the winners. We will publish the winning solutions in the next few days.
