Receiving error message when trying to execute view in SQL 2005

Hello. I am not a SQL expert so I may be asking the wrong question. If anyone can point me in the right direction, it would be appreciated.

My environment is MS SQL 2005 SP3.

My company has a web page that is used for deploying software in SMS. I am setting up an environment for testing. I have the web page working correctly except for one item.

There is a tab on the web page that bring up settings based on AD site. One of the items used to display AD sites is a view (see code below). In production the LDAP looks at DC=FDS,DC=prd,DC=com'' I am only trying to change it to the lab values (DC=ent-test,DC=loc'').

When I make the change and execute I get the below error message.


Msg 468, Level 16, State 9, Procedure vComputerSettingsAllSites, Line 3
Cannot resolve the collation conflict between "Latin1_General_CI_AS" and "SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS" in the equal to operation.

I have done research but cannot find a solution. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

It has happened because your database was restored/attached between SQL servers with different collations.

vdr1620Commented:
as the error says they both have different collations.. so you will need to convert the Table on SQL server to Latin_general_CI_AS Collation.. check the sample Code

select *
  from table_1
    inner join table_2
      on (table_1.field collate SQL_Latin1_General_CP850_CI_AI = table_2.field)
  where CONDITION

Also, i would suggest using fields with functions always on the left side of the operator

dbo.ComputerSettingsForADSite AS cs ON (SUBSTRING(LEFT(ad.siteObject, CHARINDEX(',', ad.siteObject) - 1), 4, 255) = cs.ADSite collate Latin1_General_CI_AS)

CyberKiwi has the right idea.

It is probably because the collation settings for the items/servers do not match. You could compare the collation on the two database servers, and would probably find that they do not match. If they do, it could be at the table/column level.
