The Identity Field Part III - Mia Culpa

Ok Ok - @@Identity is not as good as SCOPE_IDENTITY(). I'm sorry to have written a post that was "pro-@@identity" (even though it was rife with warnings). For anyone listening please be advised. There is never a case where @@Identity is needed and SCOPE_IDENTITY() cannot be used instead - at least not that I can think of. You can quote me on that. Now let's all remain friends.

    Unless you want to throw IDENT_CURRENT() into the discussion. ;)
