>The hierarchyid data type


I have published my article titled SQL Server 2008 – The hierarchyid data type, on SQLServerUniverse.com.

Just to let you know, the hierarchyid data type is a CLR data type introduced in SQL Server 2008, and is used for storing hierarchical data. Unlike the parent/child approach which maintains a relationship among the records, this approach maintains the level and the position within the level to keep track of the records’ hierarchy.


So, go ahead read, please my article and let me know on your thoughts.
