Today we will go over very quick tip about finding out collation of database and table column. Collations specify the rules for how strings of character data are sorted and compared, based on the norms of particular languages and locales
Today’s script are self explanatory so I will not explain it much.
/* Find Collation of SQL Server Database */
SELECT DATABASEPROPERTYEX('AdventureWorks', 'Collation')
/* Find Collation of SQL Server Database Table Column */
SELECT name, collation_name
WHERE OBJECT_ID IN (SELECT OBJECT_ID
WHERE type = 'U'
AND name = 'Address')
AND name = 'City'
