Ray writes "When our system was first implemented, it was configured as case-sensitive. Is there any documented information that would give us an idea as to the difference in system performance between case-sensitive and case-insensitive? Also, am I correct in assuming that to convert from sensitive to insensitive is a matter of running the REBUILDM process (doing a backup of the database first then doing a recovery). We are currently running SQL Server 7.0, SP2, Windows NT."

Oh boy do I feel for you. I'm working on a case-senstive binary sort order system right now AND IT SUCKS! I am so sick of having to type object names in the proper case. And of course the people who wrote the system used CAPITAL LETTERS FOR EVERYTHING! Oh well. I've not seen any significan't performance improvement. Certainly not enough to make up for headache. Once a server is installed case sensitive almost nothing else will run on it properly so you basically now have a dedicated server. SQL Server 2000 will fix that but they aren't ready to upgrade yet. As far as converting it back I really don't know. I've never had to do it. Books Online should cover it though. Good luck!
