Case sensitivity in SQL -- ignore


I believe my SQL server was configured as Case sensitivity. I have a
number of stored procedures which were moved from a non-Case
sensitivity SQL server. Because of the Case sensitivity, I have to do
a lot of editing in those stored procedures. Is there a quick way to
avoid the editing?

Something like ignoring the case in one statement?

Thanks in advance, your advice will be greatly appreciated.

I think by changing the collation of your database to case
insenstitvity may help
but this may cause problems when you create #temp tables as tempdb
will have server collation

If your column and table names are in lower case , you can modify the
SP by selecting the SP and changing to lowercase (SHIFT+CTRL+L) . But
if you have string constants which need to be in uppercase , you need
to change it accordingly

As it should be; that is how Standard SQL is defined

Life is tough when someone screws up. You need to just do it right
and stop looking for kludges. Oh, and if yuou can kill them guy that
did this, you will probably improve the quality of your company's
software in other places as well.

Are meta tags case sensitive or does case sensitivity vary depending on the search engine a user is using?

Is there a listing of which search engines pay attention to case and which don't? I have also read that some search engines throw away pages that repeat...

Hey Recently, I researched using C++ for game programming and here is what I found: C++ game developers spend a lot of their time debugging corrupted memory. Few, if any, compilers offer completely safe modes. Unsurprisingly, there is a very high failure rate among projects using C++ for modern game development.

I'm a VB.net programmer, and I'm about to start working with two C++ programmers and teach them .net.

My major problem with C#, however, is its case- sensitivity. I've heard people talk about how wonderful it is until they're blue in the face, but the fact stands

Hello, I had a question regarding Case Sensitivity in 10g & 9i. (1) Does Case Sensitivity in Oracle have to do with data only? Or does it also effect table & column names? For e.g. in a table NAMES with column NAME are the following queries equivalent regardless of whether case sensitivity is turned on or off. select name from names; select NAME from names; select name from NAMES; select NAME from NAMES;

Hi, I'm working within an application (making a lot of wrappers), but the application is not case sensitive. For example, Typing obj.name, obj.Name, or even object.naMe is all fine (as far as the app is concerned). The problem is, If someone makes a typo, they may get an unexpected error due accidentally calling the original attribute instead of the wrapped version. Does anyone have a simple solution for this?
