Introduction to SQL Server

This module will provide an introduction to Microsoft SQL Server giving you an overview of:

  • Where SQL Server has come from
  • The different tools available to assist in managing your SQL Server environments,

Retrieving Data

This module introduces us to the components that make up a database and how we can utilise those to retrieve and manage the data in our SQL Server database. We start to look at how we are able to retrieve and manipulate the data out of our SQL Server databases looking at the following:

  • Query Sources
  • Selecting Data
  • Filtering Results
  • Ordering Results
  • Statement Functions
  • Query Readability
  • Dealing with Nulls

Summarizing Retrieved Data

This module takes the Retrieving data a little further by introducing concepts to allow us to make the data returned work for us to provide more relevant informationby being able to summarize the results.

Retrieving Data from Multiple Tables

Now we are feeling more confident with being able to retrieve data from our SQL Server databases and make the results set much more meaningful we are now going to look at further expanding this by looking at how we can retrieve data from multiple locations from within our SQL Server database. We will look at concepts like:

  • Inner Joins
  • Outer Joins
  • Cross Joins
  • Joining 2 or more tables
