Collation problem

Hello,

I think I'd might have a small collation problem.

Configuration:
Two SQL Srv 2000 SP3 (running on clusters).
Booth servers configured with SQL_Latin1_Gene ral_CP1_CI_AS
collation.

On each server, I have one database, which collation is
Latin1_General_ CI_AS.

I've created a view on Server1.Databas e1, which is reading complete
table from Server2.Databas e2.

Checking the collation, the view has, I was surpriced, the collation
was the same as server collation.
Is it always, that building views between two different servers, the
object created will use default collation of server?

The problem is, this view is intergrated in other join-where query on
server1, where other objects used are from server1 and I get error
message:

select TABLE_FROM_SERV ER1.Col1 from
TABLE_FROM_SERV ER1,
VIEW_ON_SERVER1 _BUT_ACCESSING_ COMPLETE_SERVER 2
where TABLE_FROM_SERV ER1.Col1 = 'bubu_si_lala'

Server: Msg 446, Level 16, State 9, Line 1
Cannot resolve collation conflict for equal to operation.

The sulution, of joining this view will be changed anyway (is not
enought fast) but I would like to know, how is it possible, to solve so
kind of problem.

Is it possible to set the collation for created view, and determine
collation the same the database have?

Since I don't really know which database that have which collation,
I don't really want to go into speculation. But without looking in
Books Online, my guess is that each column in the view retains the
collation the column has in its source table. And the repro below
appears to confirm this. It also demonstrates how you can modify your
view by using the COLLATE clause to resolve the problem.

create database collate_test collate Polish_CS_AS
go
use collate_test
go
create view nisse_view (PolishCustomer ID, CustomerID) as
select CustomerID COLLATE database_defaul t,
CustomerID
from Northwind..Cust omers
go
-- Succeeds, since CustomerID retains the collation from the
-- Northwind database.
select * from nisse_view n
where not exists (select * from
Northwind..Orde rs O
where O.CustomerID = n.CustomerID)
go
-- Fails, as we here use the column with a collation
-- of the database.
select * from nisse_view n
where not exists (select * from
Northwind..Orde rs O
where O.CustomerID = n.PolishCustome rID)

go
use master
go
drop database collate_test

Hello, I have a problem. I've linked MySql server to MsSql, in MySql I have a table with Latvian data(character set is ucs2, ucs2_general_ci) and the problem is that when I use openquery to read data from MySQL server, some characters are not translated correctly! I receive question symbols instead of Latvian special characters. Maybe someone had this kind of problem with collation?

A few collation questions on SQL Server 2005 SP2, which I'll call SQLS. The default collation for SQLS is apparently SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS. I wish to use a variation of this, SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CS_AI collation, but there is no such collation returned from fn_helpcollations(). Also, if I try to use this collation in a CREATE DATABASE stmt, SQLS yells about it. I see that there is a Latin1_General_CS_AI. What effects are...
