Question: How to check the ANSI Compatibility of SQL Server queries?
It has been a while since I worked with SQL Server 2000. However, as an independent consultant, SQL Server never stops to surprise us. Recently, during one Comprehensive Database Performance Health Check, I found a very interesting situation which is about compatibility level 80. If you are not familiar with compatibility level, it sets database behaviors to be compatible with the specified version of SQL Server.
COMPATIBILITY LEVEL in SQL Server indicates the version of SQL Server with which the database is to be made compatible. Whenever you create a new database, compatibility level is set to that database. Sometimes you may need to change this so that some code will work.
SQL Server Performance Tuning is my hobby, passion and a job. During my recent consulting engagement for Comprehensive Database Performance Health Check, I had to face a very interesting situation which I had never faced before. I personally take any consulting gig where SQL Server is running slow, it does not matter if it is Configuration Manager Console, Dynamics, NAV, SharePoint or any other application which runs SQL Server as a database.
