Collation Issue

I've just come up against the issue of the tempdb's collation can end up
being different dependent upon whether you SELECT INTO  or CREATE TABLE.

I was wondering whether there was a  function I could call on certain
columns of the SELECT INTO which would force the collation to be something
other than the TempDB's default collation.

My problem is that I'm using a DBLayer which doesn't easily expose the
Collation properties of the underlying columns.



Simon Woods,

Try using the "collate" clause.

select c1 collate database_default as c1
into #t
from dbo.t1


Thank you. I'll give that a try
