Have a client who just upgraded to Sql Server 2012 and are using ColdFusion 8.
They have some code that grabs the identity of the newly inserted row that has worked for years until the upgrade.
The code is basically this: After your insert query you ask CF what the identitycol value is. result.identitycol
Now when dumping the query results the output is the same except it is missing the identitycol column.
From what I've Googled 2012 has deprecated identitycol to be replaced with $identity but nothing said about eliminating it.
