My name is Mark and I am a Database Operations Manager for a Marketing company in London. I have never been taught SQL but picked up all of my knowledge as I have required it over the last five years (cursors are my latest quest). I regularly check out dBforums when I have a problem that I cannot work out, especially if our developers are busy on other projects.

Keep up the good work, forums of this type are invaluable for not only newbies, but users at all stages of their search for knowledge.
