Quote:
Len("hello") = Len("hello ")


I was thinking how char vs. varchar are treated in SQL and messed around trying to get the LEN('HELLO ') != LEN('HELLO')

It's like an incorrect passing/appenidng/using VARCHAR(MAXLEN): if it passes through anything not of MAXLEN it's truncated (to 8K or, to 'HELLO').

Lesson learned, although I've not declared an actual char field [ >char(2) ] in years, and even that, only rarely.
