SqlUserDefinedAggregateAttribute.IsInvariantToDuplicates Property


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

Indicates whether the aggregate is invariant to duplicates.

Namespace:   Microsoft.SqlServer.Server
Assembly:  System.Data (in System.Data.dll)

public bool IsInvariantToDuplicates { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the aggregate is invariant to duplicates; otherwise false.

Used by the query processor, this property is true if the aggregate is invariant to duplicates. That is, the aggregate of S, {X} is the same as aggregate of S when X is already in S. For example, aggregate functions such as MIN and MAX satisfy this property, while SUM does not.

Incorrectly setting this property can result in incorrect query results. This property is not an optimizer hint; it affects both the plan selected and the results returned by the query.
