What is the need of Timestamp Datatype?.

I Know that the timestamp datatype is unique over a database. But I want to know whether the value of timestamp datatype increments whenever a insertion or updation takesplace.       

      ie if I get the row which has the max(timestamp) then whether i will get the latest record which has been inserted or updated?. 

Plz Answer me..Its urgent

Thank You

I have two tables that I need to replicate.  They are identical in specification except the name (one is for monthly stats and one daily stats) CREATE TABLE [dbo].[statsDailyLite]( [EntryDate] [date] NOT NULL, [SetID] [int] NOT NULL, [ProductID] [smallint] NOT NULL, [Hooks] [int] NOT NULL, [AdViews] [int] NOT NULL, [Clicks] [int] NOT NULL, [UAdViews] [int] NOT NULL, CONSTRAINT [PK_statsDailyLite] PRIMARY KEY CLUSTERED ( [EntryDate] ASC, [SetID] ASC, [ProductID] ASC )WITH (PAD_INDEX = OFF, STATISTICS_NORECOMPUTE = OFF, IGNORE_DUP_KEY = OFF, ALLOW_ROW_LOCKS = ON, ALLOW_PAGE_LOCKS = ON, FILLFACTOR = 90) ) GO CREATE TABLE [dbo].[statsMonthlyLite]( [EntryMonth] [date] NOT NULL, [SetID] [int] NOT NULL, [ProductID] [smallint] NOT NULL, [Hooks] [int] NOT NULL, [AdViews] [int] NOT NULL, [Clicks] [int] NOT NULL, [UAdViews] [int] NOT NULL, CONSTRAINT [PK_statsMonthlyLite] PRIMARY KEY CLUSTERED ( [EntryMonth] ASC, [SetID] ASC, [ProductID] ASC )WITH (PAD_INDEX = OFF, STATISTICS_NORECOMPUTE = OFF, IGNORE_DUP_KEY = OFF, ALLOW_ROW_LOCKS = ON, ALLOW_PAGE_LOCKS = ON, FILLFACTOR = 90) ) GO They both conatin a thousand or so test rows of data, and they are both in a transactional publication going to another SQL 2008 box.

Suppressing timestamp column changes

Hello All ! I am converting a column from ntext to nvarchar(max) and doing dummy updates (assigning the value of that column to it again) on that for re-arranging data. The issue with this that the table in context has also a column of type timestamp, used by downstreams as changecontrol tracker. Is there a way to avoid the time stamp updates, so that the delta mechanism is honored for downstreams and not pulling all the data. Thanks in advance. Kumar

The 'DataType' attribute is not declared bug of MS SQL RS still here

Greetings. I am getting repeated bugs with reporting services that is described here https://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/ViewFeedback.aspx?FeedbackID=405739&wa=wsignin1.0 In short words, BIDS is saving the report in the wrong format, adding attributes to the tags that dont belong to the schema, and you can no longer open the report with BIDS, you have to carve those attributes out with Notepad, only to find out that next time you're working on it, they come back! This is getting seriously annoying as i virually cannot close my BIDS anymore, each time i want to reopen my project i have to edit it in the notepad!  Threre are words about "microsoft knows about this issue and changed it to "Fixed (External)" but noone knows how to install the fix... Help please.

C# Datatype Issue

I have a C# app that is passing in a system.array variable by reference to an external DLL.  When I look at the data type of the returned variable by calling .GetType().FullName, is shows as System.Int32[*].   What does this data type mean??  I have searched high and wide and cannot find any documentation on this datatype.   I initially thought it was an array of integer pointers but when I tested this it came back as System.Int32*[].   Please help me understand what the System.Int32[*] datatype is.
