Awesome. Smile thank you Kenneth.

1. it will insert 1 record - FROM INSERT INTO
2. it will insert 1 record - But the count in table is 2 - from INSERT..SELECT
3. Iteration1- Inserts 2 records - the count is 4
4. Iteration2- Inserts 4 records - the count is 8
5. Iteration3- Inserts 8 records - the count is 16
6. Iteration4- Inserts 16 records - the count is 32
AND
7. Iteration5- Inserts 32 records - the count is 64

Now this is where I went wrong, actually the #2's GO is the valid first iteration, so it stops at #6 which actually completes 5 iterations. (#7 is not valid)

(so simple and yet I messed up :w00tSmile

(Just wanted to say Thank you to all, this is been the best learning experience apart from the regular routine :-))

Worthless question because of the fact that you add something that doesnt really relate to the question. The key part in the question is the "GO 5" part. And by adding the select from the table in the insert you make the "GO 5" part secondary.

Why does it make GO 5 secondary?
The GO 5 combined with the SELECT makes the insert a power of two, which is a nice twist on the question. The question still deals with the subject: a batch is repeated 5 times because it's followed by GO 5.

@Kenneth: very nice question to end the week.

Good question, thanks, and how annoying that I couldn't spot the twist until it was too late.

Lesson: Never answer QOTW before 7am.

CAST(SUBSTRING(CAST(FLOOR(NULLIF(ISNULL(COALESCE(1,NULL),NULL),NULL)) AS CHAR(1)),1,1) AS INT) == 1

Good question.

Two days in a row now answering early morning has proved that I shouldn't do it. Yesterday I couldn't add. Today I can't multiply (or at least I get 1*2*2*2*2*2 = 6). Evidently my brain doesn't start functioning until it has been fed and watered. Doze

Edit: I've just noticed a failure to normalise even to 1 NF in my comment. Two days in a row is clearly a repeating group. Rolleyes

Good question

Nearly missed the 5 after the last go - then had to remember why it was significant

Got my point though

Nice question.

I can see both sides of the discussion above re. whether it was "worthless" or not. I do think the head-scratching (for me, at least) over how many records would be in the table takes away from whether "GO x" is valid or not.

Then again, "Is GO x valid T-SQL?" would be a boring question.
