I would think that when 'NEW YORK' is correctly equated to 'NEW YORK ' in a CHAR Column then '%YORK' should also be equated to 'NEW YORK '... So I guess this can be considered as a valid bug. If ANSI SQL were to append blank while comparing CHAR strings that should also apply to wild card comparisons. So my vote -- this is a BUG


According to ANSI SQL blanks are significant to the LIKE predicate, but not for comparison predicates (=, <>).

So if it's a bug, then it's a bug in SQL:1999 ;-)
