Good question, I liked it. Starting from SQL Server 2005, getting the error information from the @@error is certainly becoming less popular due to availability of the structured error handling via try/catch blocks and functions like error_number(), error_message() and error_line(), but it is still good to know and understand the behavior of the good old friend @@error.

Nice question.
Tricky though. Makes you read closely.

I agree. My first reaction was that the two "raiseerror' invocations were identical. But then I did look more closely and realized that the question was not about "raiseerror" but rather was on "@@error". Once I saw that, the answer was obvious. Perhaps anyone saying this was a confusing, and therefore sub-standard, QOD should consider whether their confusion was borne of their own haste.

What is interesting is that approximately a third of the respondents have gotten the question wrong.

Cool

I'm amongst that respondents because I haven't used @@error since 2006, and I've already forgotten about this function :-)
