Course Description

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.

In this course, you will learn how to: 
  • Understand the similarities and differences between Transact-SQL and other computer languages.
  • Write SELECT queries
  • Query multiple tables
  • Sort and filter data
  • Describe the use of data types in SQL Server
  • Modify data using Transact-SQL
  • Use built-in functions
  • Group and aggregate data
  • Use subqueries
  • Use table expressions
  • Use set operators
  • Use window ranking, offset and aggregate functions
  • Implement pivoting and grouping sets
  • Execute stored procedures
  • Program with T-SQL
  • Implement error handling
  • Implement transactions
