The points are for boasting rights, nothing more.

I would imagine the 21 points was a mistype that will be corrected as soon as Steve notices.

Would have been better if the answers had been 11,12,13,20

Especially since it's a repeat of an older question (1-2 weeks ago).

Actually its a repeat of Monday's question (3 days ago) and it wasn't worth 21 points then. Whoops! Oh well I've made much bigger mistakes than this. Maybe this will be an incentive for those that didn't answer the question last time to try think about LEN and CHAR variables this time and give it a try.

Actually, none of the answers are correct. The correct answer is:

A recordset with a single, unnamed integer column containg a single row with the value 12 in the only column.

But we wouldn't want to get too picky over 21 points, would we.

Look carefully! It's not quite the same as Monday's QOD

They added a leading space, now come on. At least put those "traps" a few weeks apart.
