Question : If Latin1_General_CI_AS same as Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS


In my SQL2000 server, my database is using Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS collation.  Now, I need move/restore this db from SQL2000 to my new SQL2005 64 bit server, however; when I setup this new SQL2005 server, I only found the Latin1_General_CI_AS collation.  Can someone tell me are they the same?  Or, how can I find the Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS in SL2005.


Answer : If Latin1_General_CI_AS same as Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS

They are not the same.  The first one (you probably left out "SQL_" is a SQL collation, a hangover from SQL Server 7.0.  From 2000 onwards, SQL Server started offering and using Windows code pages and collations.

See here for some discussion

To use this SQL Server collation (such databases will not work with Reporting/Analysis services)

The option is there on the screen called "Collation Settings" when you install SQL Server. Choose "SQL collations", "Dictionary order, case-insensitive, for use with 1252 Character set.".
