Unanswered: SQL Server 2000 table columns from int to varchar
I am currently developing a J2EE web applicaton using struts framework and in my present development environment ,i have an existing MS SQL Server 7 database tables such as Employee,District etc with datas.
These tables has a column Employee Number and the existing data type is int length 4 and these are not defined as primary keys.
The current business requirement is to upgrade the database to MS SQL Server 2000 and change the above column from int to varchar
I can change this directly in the SQL server 7 -Enterprise Manager -Design table view
However ,I need to know if there any one has faced any realtime issues
in development due this change.
