Hi,

Database is SQL Server 2008 R2

I have one table named as Merchant having 3 columns
1) id(Auto increment),
2) Merchantid GUID
3) Name Nvarchar(100)

Whenever i do a search through query it never check the space on right as per below query it should not return any result because there is no space in my values. Values Store are like
5DE04B89-0893-40E8-9918-38A66DC256FD
Widget Test Merchant


select * from MERCHANT where
MERCHANTID='5DE04B89-0893-40E8-9918-38A66DC256FD    '
Return correct results

select * from MERCHANT where
MERCHANTID='5DE04B89-0893-40E8-9918-38A66DC256FDtest123 '
Return correct results

select * from MERCHANT where name='Widget Test Merchant      '
Return correct results

Let me know what is the issue or SQL server 2008 behave like that.

Yes, since 2008 looks like trailing spaces are ignored in SQL:

Maybe check ANSI_PADDING settings in your SQL:
