    Sorry if this is the wrong person, but are you this (http://stackoverflow.com/users/73226/martin-smith) martin? My name is Eric Barr and we’ve went back and forth on a few SQL issues ( http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1038506/efficient-way-of-getting-rowcount-from-a-query-using-row-number/4383164#4383164 )

    I recently wrote up a few blog posts on named tokenization in SQL [ ” Hello {FirstName}.” instead of “Hello {0}” ]. I’ve seen solutions like this for Client Side and middle ware, but nothing in straight SQL.

    I’m not sure if you’d be interested, but was hoping to run the solution by you and get some feedback. At worst, maybe it will spark and idea in that large SQL brain of yours.

    Anyway, let me know if your interested.

    Regards,
