Re: The same result for with SPACE and without SPACE

Nobody's kicking you out of any group. Someone requested themselves to be removed, with a typo that made it ambiguous.

The original question had nothing to do with INT, it was behavior of CHAR and trailing spaces.

Yes. Or more precisely, it is because when a string is cast to an int, leading and trailing spaces are ignored. The alternative would be to raise an error, as 'an integer plus some spaces' is not an integer...

Yes, for TEXT column, which behaves the same as VARCHAR. Also 1 row for:

select c2 from matt_test2 where c2 = '123 '

But 2 rows returned for CHAR column, as inserting '123' and '123 ' into CHAR(n) results in the same value being inserted. And also 2 rows returned for:

select c2 from matt_test2 where c2 = '123 '

^^^ which was the original question
