Contact", column 'Email Address' The statement has been terminated.

Among those, probably the most significant is that you must indicate if the function is deterministic (the default is nondeterministic). For the example this time, start a new SQL Server project in Visual Studio, but instead of adding a stored procedure as we did in our original assembly example, add a user-defined function.

This is actually a workable template "as is." You could compile it and add it to SQL Server as an assembly, and it would work right out of the box (though just getting back the string "Hello" is probably not all that useful).

But I can't run all stored proc/function changes first because it relies on columns being added from the tables/columns/data change scripts first.

E-mail, when you think about it, is a strongly typed notion, but one that SQL Server has only been able to perform minimal validation of. We could approach this issue by writing a validation function and implementing it as a user-defined data type.

to do that would require manual intervention; I wanted something more automatic. This is the double-edged sword of deferred name resolution - SQL Server gives you the benefit of the doubt in some cases, but not all.

See Erland's ides for to get some ideas of the places this works and the places it breaks: how he'd like the polar opposite of what you're after - you want to allow anything to compile regardless of existence, and he wants every single column or table to be checked.) There is no setting like which has the real body (in essence, deploy the procedure in two phases).

Scalar functions are not much different from stored procedures.
