Good question... the pick 2 made it easy though... I knew they could have constraints and indexes because I've had to put them on them before.

Which only left the other two... Smile

Nice easy question. I was quite surprised to see that more than twice as many thought constraints were not allowed as thought indexes were not allowed, and also quite surprised that 30% got it wrong although. Maybe people don't much use temp tables?

I disagree that this is an easy question. There may be two obviously correct options but there is a third option that is correct.

Temp tables can be partitioned. With three correct answers and the question requesting a pick 2, it makes it hard to decided which 2 of 3 to pick.

Here is a rundown of the three options that are correct.

This is really awesome, sql wise. Thank you for the link.

(actually the correct people are wrong and some selected wrong people are actually right)

Wow. I'm surprised. I can't imagine what I would use it for, but it seems eminently reasonable for the feature to be available even tough until now I believed it wasn't.

Yeah it is kinda hard to figure out a possible use-case. But it is kinda cool and fun to play with at least. Cool

Very nice post Jason. That script clearly demonstrates partitioning on a temp table. Saved that link to my favorites!:-D

I've been trying to think of why you would ever need to partition a temp table for the past few minutes....Nope. I have no idea why that would be useful.
