Need help with Collation Conflict Error.
Posted on 2006-11-10
I created the following procedure and I'm getting the following error:
set ANSI_NULLS ON
set QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON
ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[ssp_check_cstcnt]
select distinct costcenter from general_ledger
where costcenter not in ( select cstcnt from costcenters)
Msg 468, Level 16, State 9, Procedure ssp_check_cstcnt, Line 5
Cannot resolve the collation conflict between "SQL_Latin1_General_CP437_BIN2" and "SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS" in the equal to operation.
I thought it might be due to the fact that the default for this SQL database was set to SQL_Latin1_General_CP437_BIN2 at installation time and the procedure was created on a SQL 2000 server and imported to the newer version. I've modified the options for the database hosting this procedure to SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS but I'm still getting the same error. Can anyone tell me what I need to do to resolve this error without modifying the code for each of the imported procedures?
