Yes.. it is tricky, this query also results the same..

PRINT LEN(@StringArray) + '-' + LEN(@Delimiter)

Good question..

And its because the datatype of the variables ( @lenStringArray and @lenDelimiter) is INT.

Nice question, but this is not a "PRINT vagary". Instead this is just how type conversion works (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms190309.aspx).

SELECT @lenStringArray + '-' + @lenDelimiter


behaves the same way, because int (@lenStringArray & @lenDelimiter) has a higher precedence than varchar(1) ('_').

I'm surprised but is true:

Select Cast( '+' as int ) --> 0
Select Cast( '-' as int ) --> 0

Yes, that's reason, because the result of an implicit casting of '-' is zero
SELECT 6 + 1 + '-'

Go
