    Unanswered: Conflict in equal-to-operation

    Hi there,

    I am trying to update one table on server A/database A with new records from a server B/database B.

    Both databases use the same collation. The key-fields of both table do use the same collation, but not the server.

    Help: I was thinking, when both databases and the fields inside the tables do both use the same collation, then there will not upcome any conflict ?

    Do I have to adapt the database collation, too ? This would'nt be nice as I am retreiving data from different servers with different server collations...
    Anybody else got the same problem ?

    Thx in advance

    I would imagine as long as the 2 fields have the same collation you would be alright because that would override both the db and server collations.
    “If one brings so much courage to this world the world has to kill them or break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.

    Hmm, I would have imagined the same, but it isn't. I re-created the tables, but get the same error. Collation is on <database default> on both fields and this is exactly the same...
