Introduction This a portfolio of the projects I worked on during a nine week course period while attending SetFocus SQL Master’s Program. The SetFocus program covers the Microsoft Official Curriculum along with a few of its own materials to cover the following skills RDBMS Querying using Transact SQL Implementing and Maintaining a MS SQL 2008 Database Designing Security for a MS SQL 2008 Database SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio SSIS/SSRS The course included in class exercises and labs but also had me utilize the learned skills in real-world projects to help gain experience and a better grasp of the material.
PiggyBank The PiggyBank Project simulated a mock bank that could handle the following: Customer and Account relationships Transactions to account i.e. Deposits, Withdrawals, and Transfers Handling different types of Overdrafts The project helped illustrate skills with: DML/DDL Triggers, Parameterized Stored Procedures, and Views.

MiniAdventureWorks The MiniAdventureWorks project focused on the SQL Server Integration Services and Report Services The SSIS portion of the product covered: Inserting and Updating data from CSV flat files into the database Database and database object creation Manipulation of the flat flies Scheduling emailing of the files The SSRS portion of the project covered: Running reports on the database Having parameter with set list Scheduling snapshot views of the reports for Report Manager Setting Security for each report Arranging Email schedules to appropriate departments for each report

MiniAdventureWorksSales by Year Report This report shows the total sales of each Vendor for each selected Ship Method from the drop down list over each year. It allows for one or multiple Ship Methods to be selected and displays header information of who ran the report, when it was run and which methods were selected.

Block Flix The Block Flix group project was the final project of the Setfocus program and it utilized all the skills I learned throughout the course. It had my team and I develop three databases that were going to be jointly used to run an online movie rental provider that was expanding to store and kiosk locations The first database acted as the Central database that kept track of all the companies inventory and transactions. Central would also handle the online transactions and membership data. Then store and kiosk databases were to be examples of what would be implemented for Block Flix locations as they opened. The store would keep track of its inventory and a transaction history that would be transmitted to Central at the end of each buiness day The kiosk would have its inventory but would transmit transaction information on a real time basis and not keep a history
Block Flix Adding Movie For the Block Flix Project I, we were given that the client would be submitting new movies to be entered into the database via XML The XML file would contain all the general information of the movie such as title, genre, rating, and release year as well as a list of up to three actors, two directors, and two producers. The XSD file for importing the XML files were left for us to design and they would submit accordingly This portion of the project was to be demonstrated during our final presentation during our graduation from Setfocus.
Block Flix Adding Movie Example XML This example has two different movies being added. Both having actors and directors being added under the maximum number of names permitted to be sent.
Block Flix Add Movie Control Flow I performed the insertion of the XML files with four data flows, one handling each table we were inserting into. For inserting into the MovieCopy table I also wrote a stored procedure to help with handling insertion of multiple copies of the same movie title into the Block Flix Central database.
