    nice question .. glad to see you contributing to the QOD to allow others to learn what you can teach.

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

  • I got it right, but I wish the date wasn't April Fools day -- it adds a bit of "meta" distraction to the question.

    Is it ha, ha fooled you if you pick it, or ha, ha should have picked this? Either way, an unwelcome distraction from an otherwise nice question.

    PS There was some sort of typo or word missing trom the explanation.

  • Nice one Tom.

    Tom I need ask you one thing.

    Is there any collation setting to affect the result of today's question ?

  • Awesome, thank you Tom.

    (up until now never knew this, all the time i used simple case.... ๐Ÿ™ even though BOL has mentioned this clearly i never looked it properly ๐Ÿ˜› OR may-be I never cared much....)

    ...Is there any collation setting to affect the result of today's question ?

    (well, to my knowledge understanding, I don't think precedence change according to the collation, and I think the mention of the collation - creates a thought that - even though the output format is given as "date" the format is not as expected, so possible we start to wonder there must be some kind of overriding or in the settings... but it is just a precedence and the case statement dealing with the boolean expression)

    If at first you don't succeed, go to the pub and drink away your current thought plan.

  • Thanks for the question Tom, nice reminder of the basics.

  • Very good question, and an awesome explanation. (Apart from one small type that you probably put in deliberately to prove that you're still human).

    Thanks, Tom!
