Today, I was asked to create a table containing all the U.S. states and state codes. At first, I thought I would have to type it all, but then realised that they installed MS Office for me yesterday. I used MS Word to (automagically) convert the text into a table, saved it in MS Excel. Then, using Microsoft Business Intelligence Development Studio, I imported the data into an MS SQL Server database. I just love SQL Server for that.
