$99.00

This course provides students with the technical skills required to write basic Transact-SQL queries for Microsoft SQL Server. You will learn how to write queries that return data from tables as well as create, update, or delete data in a database. These queries will allow filtering and sorting and effectively use the various data types provided by SQL Server. This course also covers the use of dynamic tables of various sorts which can allow a more sophisticated SQL user to hide implementation details from other end users accessing data from reporting tools. Finally, the course will provide details on the what and how of error handling and transaction management. This course is the foundation for all SQL Server-related disciplines; namely, Database Administration, Database Development and Business Intelligence. The primary target audience for this course is: Database Administrators, Database Developers and BI professionals.
