Good question, I never thought default values can be used for inserting identity value, I always thought it is meant to be for inserting default value only. I learn something new everyday here BigGrin

Proof that you can teach an old dog some new tricks, probably depends on the willingness to learn though... thanks for the question

I thought that the statement should be INSERT INTO ..., but nobody complains about the missing INTO, so I start doubting: can it work without?

INTO is an optional keyword. I always use it for readability purposes but it does work without.

I can concur on the optional "into", but if memory serves me correctly, if you specify the columns to be inserted, one has to include the "into", or is it still optional even specifying columns?

From BOL regarding the INSERT statement:


INTO
Is an optional keyword that can be used between INSERT and the target table.

that means irrespective of anything, the "into" is optional.

Here is an alternative solution without 'set identity_insert' Wink

INSERT INTO TEST WITH (KEEPIDENTITY) (Col1)
SELECT IDENT_CURRENT('Test') FROM OPENROWSET(BULK N'C:\boot.ini', SINGLE_BLOB) AS a
