I am real fun of SUDOKU games, and I also have passion for solving problems writing TSQL queries. Just for fun ill love to try make code which is going to solve Sudoku puzzles. Basic idea is make table with nine columns and with maximum number of rows less then 10. First step is to update given cells with served sudoku, and after that sp or udf will update others null values in table of sudoku.
I think that is great sample of showing how TSQL can be useful and powerful language, and great sample for showing lot of TSQL features for beginners.
Ill try to write code in my way and if I succeed ill put it here if someone else find this fun and useful let us show how it can be done.

Hi again @adopilot. I think this is off-topic here on dba.se because the site has a professional slant (see the faq) –  Jack Douglas Nov 24 '11 at 22:50
    
@JackDouglas Hy to You too, Why do you think that solving sudoku is not professional degree of writing tsqls, Are we DBA-s doomed to not have fun in our jobs –  adopilot Nov 24 '11 at 23:12
    
I take 'professional' to mean the kind of thing that at at least in theory could involve getting paid - which is also fun of course :) If you think we should allow this sort of question, please pose the idea on meta and we can find out what others think - I'd go for a neutral question and then say your own view in an answer that can be voted on. –  Jack Douglas Nov 24 '11 at 23:20
