Olly Murs, "Grow Up" [OPC Hits 2016.10.16]

The runner-up of the sixth series of The X Factor UK may have previously fallen short, with "You Don't Know Love" only peaking at #7 here on OPC, but this time, he's right on target as his follow-up jam from his upcoming fifth studio album 24 Hrs debuts on the top spot on this week's Popsounds chart. After "Up" and "Wrapped Up," here's Olly Murs's third OPC #1, and it's yet another track with the word up on the title: "Grow Up."

SQL Error on Unnecessary varchar to int Conversion


Consider the following table:

CREATE TABLE [dbo].[AuditTrail](
[AuditTrailID] [int] IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL,
[UserID] [int] NOT NULL,
[FieldName] [varchar](50) NULL,
[OldValue] [varchar](max) NULL,
[NewValue] [varchar](max) NULL

And consider the following script:

DECLARE @OldRoleID int
DECLARE @NewRoleID int

DECLARE @OldUsername varchar(25)
DECLARE @NewUsername varchar(25)

SET @OldRoleID = 1
SET @NewRoleID = 2

SET @OldUsername = 'Juan'
SET @NewUsername = 'John'

(1, 'RoleID', @OldRoleID, @NewRoleID),
(1, 'Username', @OldUsername, @NewUsername);
