Thanks for the question.

There is one thing not mentioned in the explanation, but very important to keep in mind: the INTERSECT statement and the SELECT #4 do not always return the same results. If both tables #A and #B contain NULL values, the INTERSECT statement will return a NULL value in the result set, while the SELECT #4 won't.

This behavior is documented in Books Online (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms188055.aspx)

EXCEPT and INTERSECT (Transact-SQL)
Remarks


When you compare rows for determining distinct values, two NULL values are considered equal.

there is no GO after creation of table #B. In my opinion the select statements will fail with an error.
I didn't try it out but that's what I suspect.

I think the statements will run just fine.

All looked good to me - thanks for the question!

Any ideas on the performance differences between the INTERSECT and INNER JOIN methods?

I suspect the explain plans and performance will be identical.

Great back-to-basics question and I got it wrong because I wasn't paying enough attention. Err...

I think there is a copy and paste mistake in SELECT #2 and SELECT #3 as both are the same code. I guess you meant one LEFT JOIN with the DISTINCT and the other without it, right?

BTW, thank you for the link with the article.

Best regards,

I might overlook something, but aren't option 2 and 3 the same?
