Nice question

If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

Interesting question.

I managed to get it wrong by forgetting that += was introduced in 2008, not 2005.

One comment though: depending on settings of ARITHABORT and ANSI WARNINGS, it is quite possible that none of the answer options will result, because the batch is terminated before it reaches the select statement. I expect some people will say "just assume the defaults", but the defaults are quite different for batches run from an SSMS Query Window and for batches run from user applications (ANSI WARNINGS is ON by default in the former case, and OFF by default in the latter case) so perhaps questions like this ought to specify the settings.

Smart question. I successfully got it wrong. I never knew that += has been introduced in 08 and the query format seemed quite confusing. There is however much more to dig deep for SQL developers. The answer given is relative.

OK, can somebody suggest why this returns "Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Line 4 Incorrect syntax near '='." on my 9.0.4207 SQL server?

declare @i tinyint
SELECT @i = 0
while @i < 255
SELECT @i+=1
SELECT @i

Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Line 4
Incorrect syntax near '='.
