Nice, easy question to end the week on, thanks Junior

So why is it that with all the Implicit conversions that SQL can do, something, that to me seems so simple, has never been made addressed ?
Thanks - tricky question for me, but I learned something.
A SQL query walks into a bar and sees two tables. He walks up to them and asks, "Can I join you?"

This has nothing to do with implicit conversions. This is assigning a value to a type larger that it allows. If this were a column, you should have to implicitly change the column definition, that's just a recipe for disaster.

Many times, what I learn from the QotD is to slow down and pay attention to the details. This question is a good example. I scanned it & didn't connect the details in the declaration and the assignment. I could blame the absence of caffeine in my system, but the real problem is my lack of attention to detail.
Thanks for the question, Junior.
What does the SSMS version have to do with the question.
I mean it is a good question, requiring attention to detail but the SSMS version is totally unrelated.

We see it all the time, magicians, politicians and IT consultants throwing in unrelated things 😀
