In a sql server 2008 r2 database, I have a column that can be null. What I am looking for values that equal zero. The column I am looking at is declared as an ineger.

Thus how do I check for the value = 0, but not select recrods where the value in this column can be null.

How would I do this check in a where statement?

Or is you just wanted to return any integers excluding NULLS without hard coding the WHERE


DECLARE @TABLE AS TABLE
(NUMBER INT)

INSERT INTO @TABLE
(NUMBER)

SELECT NULL UNION ALL
SELECT NULL UNION ALL
SELECT 0 UNION ALL
SELECT 1 UNION ALL
SELECT 2 

SELECT  *
FROM    @TABLE
WHERE 
ISNUMERIC(NUMBER) = 1

copy/paste this into a query window, run it and see what happens.

declare @sample table (id int null)
insert @sample
select null union all
select 5 union all
select 10 union all
select 0 union all
select null

select * from @sample
where id=0

select * from @sample
where id is null

select * from @sample
where id is not null
