The question did not mention SQL 2005.
My answer was for SQL 2000.
Oh well.

The question does specifically request the results from SQL Server 2005.

Yes, it does.

What will be the result when the following query is executed on SQL Server 2005?


Also, and this depends on knowing the sample databases, but AdventureWorks is one of the new sample databases for SQL 2005.

I was very careful to specify SQL 2005 because SQL 2000 behaves differently.

I was inspired to post this question because one of my students used WHERE = 'true' for a bit column. I tested that in SQL 2000 and it did not work, so I told the student he was wrong. However, when I tested that in SQL 2005, it worked.

I was not trying to trick anyone, since I explicitly specified SQL 2005, and found an example from the AdventureWorks database.

WHERE SalariedFlag = 'true' for bit would not work in 2000 but since it says use Adventureworks, it clear that the question is for SQL 2005.

True.

And I explicitly said "2005" in the body of the question.

Just a problem with some people not reading the entire question. The question did specifically state SQL Server 2005.

Good question, everything specified to be able to make an educated guess at the answer.

Well done.

Cool
