SQL Level 1: Fundamentals of Querying

1 Day

Description

Many organizations use databases to store their most critical information: the information that manages their day-to-day operations. After the data is stored in databases, however, it is useless unless you can retrieve it for further business analysis. One example of a database management system is Microsoft SQL Server 2012. The language you use to retrieve information from SQL Server 2012 databases is the Structured Query Language (SQL). This course, SQL Querying: Fundamentals, will teach you to use SQL as a tool to retrieve the information you need from databases.

Course Objectives:

In this course, you will compose SQL queries to retrieve desired information from a database.

You will:

  • Connect to the SQL Server database and execute a simple query.
  • Include a search condition in a simple query.
  • Use various functions to perform calculations on data.
  • Organize the data obtained from a query before it is displayed on-screen.
  • Retrieve data from multiple tables.
  • Export the results of a query.

 

Target Student:

This course is intended for individuals with basic computer skills, familiar with concepts related to database structure and terminology, and who want to use SQL to query databases.
