    Local temporary tables have a single number sign (#) as the first character of their names; they are visible only to the current connection for the user, and they are deleted when the user disconnects from the instance of SQL Server.
  11. What is the purpose of a Global Temporary Table and how does it differ from a Local Temporary Table?
    Global temporary tables have two number signs (##) as the first characters of their names; they are visible to any user after they are created, and they are deleted when all users referencing the table disconnect from the instance of SQL Server.
  12. What is the purpose of a System Table?
    This is where SQL Server stores the data that defines the configuration of the server and all its tables. Users cannot directly query or update the system tables. The information in the system tables is made available through the system views.
