Quick question, are you using full-text search on the server?
The server is pretty smart when it comes to interpreting even the strangest of user's naming
As an example, this should run on any sql server which does not have full text search enabled, fails if it is.
create table [STOPLIST] ( [tinyint] int null, [char] char(1) null);
insert into STOPLIST(tinyint,char) values (-2147483647,'a'),(0,'b'),(1,'c'),(2147483647,'d');
select * from STOPLIST;
drop table [STOPLIST];
