To get values from other tables or columns of the same table but different row, you should use a function:

CREATE TABLE [dbo].[a2]
(
[a1ID] [int] NULL,
[col3] AS (a1ID^2)
)
GO
create function get_a2_col3(@a1id int)
returns int
as
begin
return (select col3 from [dbo].[a2] where a1ID = @a1id)
end
go
CREATE TABLE [dbo].[a3]
(
[a3ID] [int] NULL,
[col4] AS dbo.get_a2_col3(a3ID) --(dbo.a2.col3 - 1)
)
GO

drop table [a2]
drop table [a3]

Good question!

I was pretty sure that the first create would fail since the operator ^ isn't described in BOL under arithmetic operators. It never occured to me that it could be a bitwise operator. I just assumed it was an attempt to make me think it was a "to the power of" operator.

DOH!


Just because you're right doesn't mean everybody else is wrong.

Thanks for the question.

One small point, not only did the create for the second table fail, so did the drop. (Though I doubt that would trip anybody up.)
