Nice question, thanks!

I'm a little surprised that so many people have gotten it correct so far, but that may be because of the copy, paste, F5 syndrome. ;-)

Or copy, paste, alt+x syndrome (F5 is to far away on the keyboard... and actually clicking execute is WAY out of the question).

Good question though.

I didn't execute the code, but I was definitely helped by the title, "Table Variable: Doesn't Care"... All the same, it's a good question that's pointing out interesting and completely reasonable behavior that I never paid attention to before!

Nice question to point out the difference between temp table and table variable, but a little more explanation would be helpful (such as a link to a BOL article).

Nice question, thanks.

According to Books Online, "Transactions involving table variables last only for the duration of an update on the table variable." - Good to know! One of those things that makes sense when you think about it, but could easily catch you out.

Of course, one place this behaviour comes in useful is if you want to store the values from an output clause when rolling back a transaction. Just store them in a table variable first so they don't get lost when the transaction is rolled back.

Have a look here at Martin Bell's explanation, which I found useful.
