Case Sensitive SQL Query

65 Views
Last Modified: 2019-11-18
I wish to perform a case sensitive query on an SQL Server table.
I have found an example :
Select * from a_table where attribute = 'k' COLLATE Latin1_General_CS_AS

Can I be assured that executing this query will not affectsubsequent queries that don't have the COLLATE statement ?

In other words, the default COLLATION for the table will not be affected ?

Thanks,

Roger
