How to reset lost sql sa password?


Have you ever forgot or lost your SQL Server sa password? Did you hava any ideals to reset your lost sa password? Or choosed to reinstall MS SQL Server on your PC again? I once forgot my SQL sa password and I reinstalled SQL Server at last, because I failed to find some good methods to solve the problem. What annoying and terrible experience it is! In order to avoid reinstalling SQL Server for a second time, i collect some methods and try them by myself, to reset SQL Server Password for sa account.

Method 1: Reset SQL Server sa password by Windows Authentication

If Builtin/Administrator is present in SQL Server, you can login with an ID which is member of Administrators group and reset sa password in SQL Server. Just do as follows:

Step 1. Login into SQL server using Windows Authentication.
Step 2. In Object Explorer, open Security folder, open Logins folder. Right click on sa account and go to Properties.
Step 3. Type a new SQL sa password, and confirm it. Click OK to finish.

retrieving data records from xml data file using xaml(WPF).


I have an XML data file, and I have designed a XAML file with data binding to the data fields found in the XML data file.

When I run the XAML application, the first XML data record is displayed in the correct fields on the panel.

Is it possible to design an application to retrieve multiple records (multiple instances of each data field) using XAML alone?  or are C# (or VB) "code-behind" event handlers necessary to retrieve(or add) beyond the first record?

Visio File Type Requesting for Username and Password


Hello all,

PS2007 to PS2010 migration went well in a Test Environment, but only one issue remains. When opening Visio file for editing, it constantly requests for username and password. I have ticked 'Remember Password', but that doesn't seem to work. Opening it in Read-Only mode is fine.

Please note that I asked this question in the Project Server Upgrade Forum, but I was told it is related to SharePoint. Can someone please assist?

Thank you,

File Connection with UTF-8 format lost some chars if source file encoding is ANSI


Hi folks

I have a situation where I need to read some UTF-8 files, but for some reason the system that is providing me the files is sending me mixed formats ( ANSI and UTF-8)

Researching on the situation, the system is converting the files automatically if they do not contains any unicode data.


The problem is that if the file is ANSI and it contains some extended ascii ( for example char 160 ) the dataflow is converting the ascii 160 to asci 63 and this is causing problems on database.


I am thinking this is because the ETL is expecting UTF format but insted receiving ANSI.

Is there any way to tell the SSIS to keep the extended ASCII ? 


Thanks in advance
