Nice question, thanks!

How many people actually use the ODBC date literals?

I think very few in comparison.

Yeah, I think the number of people answering correctly shows that. (Currently 33% of the 24 people that have answered.)

Thanks for the question.

I tried all 4 select statements in 2005 as well as in 2008 without changing LANGUATE 7 DATEFORMAT. All the 4 statements worked. So selected all of them.

I overlooked "regardless of any LANGUAGE or DATEFORMAT settings? (select 2)".

Lost the point.

It was a learning for me.

Talking of Dating...I do

Seriously, our product does use ODBC date literals, and hence this one was an easy one for me.
However, generally speaking, this is a fantastic question because it teaches a lot about how to generalize our code.

And, the subject is great as well.
Thank-you!

same here, I overlooked the "regardless of any language" piece, so selected all 4 too...
Learned something though... "Read carefully"

Good question. If the hint for choosing 2 options was not there, I would have got this wrong.

Pity you can't split the results by nationality--I wonder how many British or European DBAs would get this one wrong?
