About SQL, .NET and everything Microsoft

I have never bothered to fill up this section of my blog, but recently I have been inundated with emails requesting me to answer a technical question, plus if possible, give a brief description about myself.


Instead of replying back to everybody, I thought I will take time-out to fill this section of my blog.


So let’s begin.


Who am I and what do I do for a living?

My name is Sanchan Sahai Saxena and I work for Microsoft US.


I have been with Microsoft for the past 3 years – having worked for them in different capacities in these past years.


Currently, I work out of the Microsoft Charlotte office in the US.


I specialize in SQL Server and .NET – hence the title of my blog.


For the past 1 year, I have been involved extensively with SQL 2005 and majority of the content on my blog is related to SQL Server 2005.




Here are answers to some of the questions that I get asked regularly through email.


Why do I blog?

I only blog about stuff that I like and am passionate about. If you want me to blog about something, please send me the topic and I will be glad to blog about it, if it falls within my expertise and my passion.


Do I provide technical support through my blog?

No. I don’t provide technical support through my blog.


I will try to answer your questions as best as I can, given that I keep a day job as well.


However, Microsoft has a dedicated team that provides technical support for the issues that you are encountering on your production servers. So in case you need technical support on any of the Microsoft Products, please refer to this link for MS’s technical support numbers.


Should you post a comment or send me an email instead?

Well, I appreciate all your feedback and comments.


For a blog, feel free to post a comment and I will reply back as quickly as possible.


For something that is not listed on my blog, feel free to hit contact me link on this blog and send me your questions.


What else do I write about?

Well, I have started writing for a SQL Server Magazine called Simple-Talk. It is a great magazine for .NET and SQL Server professionals and you can visit it at
