Fundamentals of SQL Querying


Fundamentals of SQL QueryingMany 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. The language you use to retrieve information from SQL Server 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.



After completing this course, students will be able to:

  • 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 data obtained from a query before it is displayed on-screen
  • retrieve data from tables
  • format an output, save a result, and generate a report
