I want to do a case sensitive search in my SQL query. But by default, SQL Server does not consider the case of the strings.

Any idea on how to do a case sensitive search in SQL query?

A case sensitive search in WHERE clause can be done via changing the Collation. Because, by default, it is case insensitive.

Try this code:


FROM dbo.Customers

WHERE   CustID = @CustID COLLATE SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CS_AS

    AND CustPassword = @CustPassword COLLATE SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CS_AS

Otherwise, change the columns to be case sensitive.
