This article is written based on feedback I have received on SQL SERVER – Cannot resolve collation conflict for equal to operation. Many reader asked me how to find collation of current database. There are two different ways to find out SQL Server database collation.
1) Using T-SQL (My Recommendation)
Run following Script in Query Editor
SELECT DATABASEPROPERTYEX('AdventureWorks', 'Collation') SQLCollation;
2) Using SQL Server Management Studio
Refer the following two diagram to find out the SQL Collation.
Write Click on Database
Click on Properties
