Thanks.

It would have been nice to have a shortcut for 0/0 (divide zero by zero) :-).

I got this right but...

SELECT 0%0

gives

Msg 8134, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Divide by zero error encountered.


So it seems you can use it to divide 0 by 0 and get an error.

:-)

This makes sense, since a modulus can be defined as a product of division, you have to be able to do the division. Some systems, though, define x mod 0 as x (i.e, the difference between x and the nearest multiple of 0 [which is 0 (because 0 is the only multiple of 0.)])

So happy that over 80 percent of us know math.

Can you imagine how hard it would be a SQL developer or DBA if you didn't learn higher level math?
