    I'm happy to admit I didn't know that one - it does make sense logically but I had to check.

    Awesome, actually really nice one.

    (I had developed imaginary theory on this long back- what if the table is self joined with the key and would truncate work? - and I answered myself "probably yes - as it is a same table" - but never tried it practically, this was really good to see my imagination in the reality)

    The first and the hardest SQL statement I have wrote- "select * from customers" - and I was happy and felt smart.

    Whoops, guessed the wrong one. Nice question, learned something.

    +1 didn't realize this either... probably because in general the tables I want to truncate have additional foreign keys that depend on them 🙂

    Still... good to know.
