Case-sensitive Comparisons

To program a case-sensitive comparison of a user-typed password on a case-insensitive SQL Server 7.0 instance, assume that the value of the password stored in your table is BamBi2000 (notice that the “B”s are uppercase, whereas all other letters are lowercase):

 DECLARE @user_password varchar(12)IF CAST (@user_password AS varbinary(12)) =CAST ('BamBi2000' AS varbinary(12))PRINT 'Password match'ELSEPRINT 'Password mismatch'
