    Default Just some SQL Server Questions

    Hey all, I'm somewhat new to MSSQL, and was just wondering the difference between nvarchar and varchar. And just the differences between all the different data-types. Does anyone know of a site that defines all the different data-types?

Unless you are mucking with non-European languages, ignore it.<BR><BR>Incidentally, look at that page and see how few datatypes there really are in TSQL! (There are even fewer in Access, but Access supports DOZENS of aliases for the basic names.)<BR><BR>
