I wrote a query this morning to detect if there are any values in a certain table IN_DumpReason in my SQL Server 2005 database that are not present in somebody else's SQL Server 2000 database:
WHERE DumpReasonCode NOT IN (
from highjump.AAD.dbo.t_reason )
I received the following error message:
"Cannot resolve the collation conflict between "Latin1_General_BIN" and "SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS" in the equal to operation."
Huh! After some Googling I found that you can tell SQL Server what collation to use when doing an equals test. Use the syntax
ColName COLLATE CollationName
