The Weird and The Wonderful

   

The Weird and The Wonderful forum is a place to post Coding Horrors, Worst Practices, and the occasional flash of brilliance.

We all come across code that simply boggles the mind. Lazy kludges, embarrasing mistakes, horrid workarounds and developers just not quite getting it. And then somedays we come across - or write - the truly sublime.

Post your Best, your worst, and your most interesting. But please - no programming questions . This forum is purely for amusement and discussions on code snippets. All actual programming questions will be removed.

I've done something similar to this recently. It was like this:

SELECT CASE
    WHEN Field1 = 'Something #1' THEN 'Result #1'
    WHEN Field1 = 'Something #2' THEN 'N/A'
    WHEN Field1 = 'Something #3' THEN '(Empty)'
    ELSE 'N/A'
    END

And I continued to wonder why even when 'Something #1' was not met, I was seeing 'N/A' in the results. Took me a bit to figure it out. D'Oh! | :doh:
djj55: Nice but may have a permission problem
Pete O'Hanlon: He has my permission to run it.
