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

:-)


And the answer is surprisingly: no.
GO is not a TSQL statement, but a batch terminator recognised by sqlcmd, osql and SSMS.

GO (Transact-SQL)

1*2*2*2*2*2 = 6


It does equal 6! At least, that's my excuse.

The first and the hardest SQL statement I have wrote- "select * from customers" - and I was happy and felt smart.

Great question that shows a feature of the GO command that I only recently learned. Excellent!

What's really bad is understanding the question correctly and screwing up the loop counts because it is early in the morning. I counted the 5 loops but forgot to include the first run and ended up with 16. Once I saw it was wrong I recounted and hit my forehead with my palm.

- 1 (palm to forehead) :-D

Thank you for the great question, too bad I couldn't end Friday with that point. I guess I should have learned my lesson by trying to answer QotD this early before caffeine.



Everything is awesome!

Ugh, I've got to stop answering these questions first thing in the morning.
Great question though!
