How do I construct a SQL query (MS SQL Server) where the "where" clause is case-insensitive?

SELECT * FROM myTable WHERE myField = 'sOmeVal'

I want the results to come back ignoring the case

In the default configuration of a SQL Server database, string comparisons are case-insensitive. If your database overrides this setting (through the use of an alternate collation), then you'll need to specify what sort of collation to use in your query.

SELECT * FROM myTable WHERE myField = 'sOmeVal' COLLATE SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS

Note that the collation I provided is just an example (though it will more than likely function just fine for you). A more thorough outline of SQL Server collations can be found here.
