Most of people don't know about it because it's not in use in any real scenario. I never use this kind of table in production environment, But i knew it due to someone ask me about it earlier.

Anyway, thanks for question.:-)

Thanks

Sure it is, if the table contains other columns, all with defaults.
As a simplistic example:
CREATE TABLE TableA(ID INT IDENTITY (1,1),
LastUpdated datetime default (getdate()))



I don't use this technique often, but have used it in production systems before.

... what Mr. Ocean meant was to use the defaults with the combination of identity column.

(the example what you have given is very nice and we have that set up in the prod server for one database. it actually reduces couple of parameters while inserting - createdate or updating the date)

A real (especially in old release of sqlserver) scenario is a TALLY table.
[sql]
INSERT INTO TableA DEFAULT VALUES
GO 10000
[/sql]
Another way to insert values in Table A is:
[sql]
SET IDENTITY_INSERT TableA ON
INSERT INTO TableA SELECT TOP 10000 ROW_NUMBER() OVER (ORDER BY A.object_id) FROM sys.objects A, sys.objects B
SET IDENTITY_INSERT TableA OFF
[/sql]

I've learned to read the discussions about all the questions because I learn things there as well. Did not know about adding a number to GO to get multiple executions. THANKS!
