 This was so easy I answered right away without hesitation. Then, I noticed it was a two point question and that gave me doubt. Those two point questions always have some twist to them. So, I looked up the definition of deterministic to make sure I understood the word correctly.Definition: In computer science, a deterministic algorithm is an algorithm which, in informal terms, behaves predictably.Also, for those interested, Steve had a nice post about this function on June 28, 2011:http://www.sqlservercentral.com/blogs/steve_jones/2011/06/28/hashbytes-_1320_-a-t_2D00_sql-function/I got it right but I was scared to push that submit button.

 Great question as it taught me about Hashbytes, which is something I did not know about.

 Nice question, but quite easy as hash functions are deterministic by design. How to post forum questions.Need an answer? No, you need a question.What’s the deal with Excel & SSIS?Member of LinkedIn. My blog at LessThanDot. MCSA SQL Server 2012 - MCSE Business Intelligence
