That is not my hate. My hate is that there are too many standards in SQL and there is no single standard that is supported by all mainstream databases, and they even differ per release.

Additionally (mainstream) database get shipped where the default is to not respect the ANSI standard, because (they state) is is slowing down, so you have to set options to make it comply to the standard so you can write portable (ahum) SQL.

Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
