    If this is considered for a future version of SQL Server, please implement it according to the ISO SQL standard. In other words, implement the SQL Standard , which provides regular expression support through the operator [NOT] SIMILAR TO, which in the standard remains separate from LIKE.

    <=-=Sep 5 2007 7:05AM=-=>

    Like Steve, I would also like to stress that any implementation should be as per ANSI (SIMILAR predicate). The CLR functionality is not a relevant design consideration.

    <=-=Oct 15 2007 8:43AM=-=>

    This is a request we’ve heard a lot, and it’s of obvious value. I can’t promise when we’ll get to it—-it’s doubtful for this release—-but this is certainly on our radar.

    Cheers,
    -Isaac

    Thank you for the feedback, we’ll look into ways to improve on the scenario you describe.

    Thanks,

    IDENTITY columns CAN be updated! See workaround…

    <=-=Feb 21 2008 8:08AM=-=>

    Workaround doesn’t work in 2000 or 2005.

    I would rate updates more important than turn on/off, but both would be very handy.

    <=-=Oct 16 2009 4:00AM=-=>

    @way0utwest – the workaround definitely does work in 2005 – I used it just the other day!

    <=-=Feb 4 2010 5:16PM=-=>

    I have added a partial workaround using ALTER TABLESWITCH.
    I do agree that this would be a useful extension to ALTER TABLE ALTER COLUMN though…

    <=-=May 2 2013 8:10PM=-=>

    I just realised how painful having identity columns !! we recently wanted to merge two client databases (their businesses merging) and it became a nightmare!! Because we used identities as…

    Hello

    Thank you for your feedback. The ability to modify the identity property of an existing column will certainly benefit the scenarios you’ve described. We’ll look into ways of enabling these scenarios in a future release of SQL Server.

    Any update on this? It seems pretty ridiculous that the only way of changing a column to be an identity column is either to add a new column and drop the existing one (necessitating an update to every row in the table, wasting space from the dropped column…

    This feature vastly simplifies development of certain types of applications. Would be interesting at least know if microsoft has some intention to implement it.

    <=-=Jul 27 2016 5:19PM=-=>

    A fully compliant implementation to ansi sql 2011 would nice too.

    <=-=Jul 28 2016 1:01AM=-=>

    I would also like to see bitemporal support added, it would be most useful!

    <=-=Mar 7 2017 11:54AM=-=>

    This feature would really help people trying to migrate their DBs from DB2 or Oracle to SQL Server that much easier.

    This is really annoying, that you cannot get all inner exceptions in Transact SQL, and have to leave transact sql code to get all messages.
