    Unanswered: Check for unicode within an ntext

    Hey all,

    I've got to check an ntext column if it actually does contain unicode characters or not. I would prefer to not have to iterate through every character in each column, is there a simple way to do this in sql server 2000?

    Cheers,

    CAST or CONVERT it to text, and monitor for errors.
    If it's not practically useful, then it's practically useless.
