Cool, in

it was essential to spot that the first two bits (1) and the last one (0) are constructing the right answer.

Awesome, thank you for the post, Steve.

HAPPY NEW YEAR 11111011110, to all SQL family :-) (we are proud, as our family is growing bigger each day)

(I took the classic style, you know - pen paper and base-2)

-//Edit: Today I can proudly point back to my signature and say, I can be counter under "who understands binary"

Steve, I love these questions. Thanks:-D

Oh, here is an excerpt of a UDF I used to convert from int to binary (of course the other aspects of the UDF is checking the data type). I'm sure many of you use something similar or SQL Server bitwise ANDs. Just thought I'd share.

Thanks



--Convert to "binary"\HEX
select CONVERT(binary,2014), CONVERT(varbinary,2014)
--Returns 0x7DE...of course, the actual result between the two are different (fixed vs. variable)


--Convert string value to true binary representation
declare @parmVal int
declare @currVal varchar(64)
declare @counter int

set @parmVal=2014

select @counter = 64, @currVal = ''
while @counter>0
begin
select @currVal = convert(char(1), @parmVal % 2)+@currVal
select @parmVal = convert(int, (@parmVal / 2))
select @counter=@counter-1
end
select @currVal

--Returns 11111011110 (I left off the prepended 0's)

For me it was an easy one - I used to work as a Systems Programmer on IBM mainframes...

Thanks, Steve, and Happy New Year, all!
