Explain inline variable assignment in sql server 2008 with an example.
Inline variable assignment in SQL Server 2008 enables to – declare, and assign the variables in a ‘single line’.The traditional Ex:
DECLARE @myVar int
SET @myVar = 5
need to declare the variable and assigning it to the variable to split into 2 lines and use 2 statements - DECLARE and SET.
In SQL Server 2008, as the name suggests ‘inline’, both declaration and assignment can be given in a single line:
DECLARE @myVar int = 5
