What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I think you need to bracket 0 in the statement.

Absolutely no difference, except the syntax being used

This result:
| ID |      DETAILS | A | B | C | D | E | F | G | H |
|----|--------------|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|
|  1 | (one) or one | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 |

Open in new window

Produce by this DDL:
CREATE TABLE Table1
	(
       id int identity primary key  , details varchar(30)
       
     , [a] float default (0)           , [b] float default 0
     , [c] int default (0)             , [d] int default 0 
     , [e] decimal(12,3)  default (0)  , [f] decimal(12,3) default 0
     , [g] money default (0)           , [h] money default 0
    )
;
	
INSERT INTO Table1
	([details])
VALUES
	('(one) or one')
;

Open in new window

select
*
from table1

Open in new window
