Good question, but I've liked a little more explanation and if possible, a reference.

Great question, thanks

Here is a reference to the compound operators: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc645922.aspx

I guess the subtle point is that SQL Server will NOT throw any syntax errors because ultimately what the user is making is a logical error.
It's one of those things that one would miss when writing code in a hurry, and then spend endless nights trying to figure out what went wrong.

Thanks for the reference, but it still doesn't explain the question. In the question =+ is used, while the compound operator used in SQL Server is +=. I've done a little research, and it seems that a++ is the post-increment operator and ++a the pre-increment operator.

(see http://bytes.com/topic/c/answers/506780-difference-between-pre-increment-post-increment).

So it seems that the explanation of the question is wrong, as it states that the pre-increment operator is not used in SQL Server. SQL Server uses however a compound operator, meaning addition and assign, not incrementing the value. It still remains unknown to me why SQL Server ignores the + in =+ instead of giving a syntax error.

Yes, explanation is wrong!
@a=+@b means simply that you assign an +(expression) to @a.
+ is unary operator: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa276846(SQL.80).aspx

Thanks for the link. Hence, @a =+ @b means @b value assign to @a so @a = -21.

Thanks
