    Spent 15 minutes looking for the gotcha...

    Nice back to basics question although I'm a bit more of a COALESCE man myself.

    I remember a long time ago (SQL Server 2005?) having performance issues using COALESCE rather than ISNULL, although I never really looked into it to find out what was going on. I suspect there may have been other mitigating factors.

    Still there was always someone iin the class that would screw that up.

  • Nice back to basics questions, nice and easy despite my insane attempts to find the catch... :crazy:

    Thanks 😀
