Introduction to SQL


with Tom Fragale

Calendar Jul 20, 2021 at 8:30 am

In today's world, the individual user may be given access to a large database, and they somehow have to make sense of this huge amount of data. This used to be the responsibility of an IT team, but these days the IT teams do not have the resources to write the reports needed by each person. Many databases use the SQL language to retrieve the proper data from the large database. This course shows you how to start writing your own SQL queries.

Topics Include:

  • Select statements
  • Giving the output field a different name
  • Using Where statements to get the exact records you are looking for
  • Using Order By statements to sort the data
  • Creating Subtotals with the Group By statement
  • Introduction to joining tables together
