In SQL Server 2005, column-level (sometimes called cell-level) encryption became available. Now, encryption could occur within the database, but it was not easy to use, offered poor performance, and it required a re-architecture of the application, along with changes to the database schema. Even with these downsides, column-level encryption offered some advantages: such as granular security; data is encrypted in memory and disk; and explicit key management, which allows different users to protect their own data using their own keys, even preventing the DBA from seeing a user’s data. Even so, the disadvantages were so great that only the most sensitive columns of a table were generally encrypted, which meant that much of the data in a database was still left unencrypted

PWDENCRYPT is a hash function, which means it's a one-way function. Once hashed, data cannot be restored. With cell-level encryption, data can be both encrypted and decrypted.

Thank you! I love undocumented.

I'm afraid you'll be disappointed in this function since it became documented (and obsolete at the same time) in SQL Server 2008 :-) http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd822791.aspx

If SQL 2008 was part of the choices, my guess would have been wrong as I decided to choose the newest of the three.

Not to be too picky but if cell level encryption was available since SQLServer 7 wouldn't SQLServer 7 have been the correct answer? Even if it was undocumented and poorly performing, it was still technically available, correct?
