  SQL Server Tips by Gama and Naughter


Nvarchar

 

Nvarchar stores variable length Unicode data. This example is very obvious:

 

DECLARE @b nvarchar(10)

SET @b='abc'

select DATALENGTH(@b), LEN(@b)

SELECT @b

 

6     3

abc

 

Integers
 

Bigint can store numbers between -2^63 and 2^63-1, that is -9,223,372,036,854,775,808 to 9,223,372,036,854,775,807.

 

Int can store numbers between -2^31 and 2^31 - 1, that is -2,147,483,648 to 2,147,483,647.

 

Smallint can store numbers between -2^15 and 2^15 - 1, that is -32,768 to 32,767

 

Tinyint can store numbers between 0 and 255.

 

Bit
 

Bit can be either 1 or 0. Any numeric value can be attributed to a bit variable turning it into 0 if the original value was 0, otherwise 1.
