What are Collations and How Are They Used in SQL Server Databases
Length: 30 Minutes
Presenters: Mike Culver & Mark Scott

What is a SQL Server “Collation?” Whether you are installing a new instance of SQL Server, restoring a database backup, or developing an application, it is important that you understand the locale, sort order, and sensitivity requirements of the data with which you will be working. Mike notes, “Depending on the collation, sorting, grouping, joining, and what is considered to be unique can differ for the same set of data. If collation does not match what a client application or users are expecting, the DBA or developer is faced with a time consuming pain in the neck problem resolving it.
