This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.. Use Reporting Services instead.

To use the Web Assistant, you must also run the Web.sql script, available in the Microsoft SQL Server installation location, in the MSSQL.x\MSSQL\Install folder.

The following example enables the Web Assistant procedures.
