  • Thanks for a good back to basics question ...

    If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

  • There'd have been a few more wrong answers if it weren't for the "select 2" hint...

    There'd have been a few more wrong answers if it weren't for the "select 2" hint...

    Given that the selections only add up to 188%, I don't think everyone's taken the hint :w00t:.

  • I certainly might have had to think about the NULL one if the select 2 hint had not been there - but hopefully not for too long.

  • Thanks Kenneth.

    Good question to brush-up our basics 🙂

  • Great question. I guess I had to think about it more than some of the others though.

  • Dag-nabbit, that'll teach me to read more carefully. I read it as "how many" and not "which"! Duh. Well at least I got it right in my head. 😉

  • Good question, and one that not too many of us consider daily. We ought to make note here that DEFAULT has been deprecated in an unspecified future version of SQL Server, so don't get too attached to it 🙂

    I think you are confusing default constraints (which are defined in the ANSI standard, and not deprecated) with "default objects" that can be bound to columns or alias data types.

    The ANSI standard DEFAULT constraint is what's used in this question - no seperate object, but a default definition used as a constraint in the table.

    The deprecated feature uses CREATE DEFAULT to create a default obejct, and then calls the stored procedure sp_binddefault to bind it to either a column or an alias data type.

    Reference (hyperlink!): CREATE DEFAULT
