  46. 46. Querying DatabasesJust a Minute… In order to identify the successful candidates, who took the test between March 5, 2001 and March 12, 2001, a report displaying the names of candidates and their scores needs to be created. The format of the report is as follows: vFirstName vLastName siTestScore dTestDate©NIIT SQL/lesson 1/Slide 46 of 50
  47. 47. Querying DatabasesSummaryIn this lesson, you learned that: A database management system consists of a Server, a database (or multiple databases) with tables containing data, and a client (front-end) that helps a user interact with the server to retrieve data. The language provided by SQL Server to access data from a database is known as Structured Query Language (SQL). Microsoft SQL Server provides a customized implementation of SQL called T-SQL.©NIIT SQL/lesson 1/Slide 47 of 50
  48. 48. Querying DatabasesSummary (Contd.) SQL Server provides a SELECT statement to access and retrieve data from a database. The SELECT statement queries the server to prepare a result and return it to the client application. The SELECT statement can be used to retrieve specific column(s) from the table by specifying the column names from the table. The SELECT statement along with the asterisk (*) symbol produces the result that contains the details of all the columns in the table.©NIIT SQL/lesson 1/Slide 48 of 50
  49. 49. Querying DatabasesSummary (Contd.) The order of the columns can be changed in the result set of the SELECT statement by specifying the individual column names separated by a comma. SQL Server provides two methods for specifying the column heading. In the first method, the column heading is specified before the column name whereas in the second method, the column name is specified before the column heading. The WHERE clause is provided by SQL Server to specify the condition to retrieve specific data. The result set of the data query statement can be made more readable by including a string called literals in the SELECT list.©NIIT SQL/lesson 1/Slide 49 of 50
  50. 50. Querying DatabasesSummary (Contd.) SQL Server supports operators that perform arithmetic operations like addition, subtraction, division, and multiplication on numeric columns. In a mixed mode arithmetic operation, the lower datatype value gets converted into a higher datatype value according to datatype precedence. SQL Server provides the following set of operators: Logical operators like AND, OR and NOT Comparison operators like =, , , =, =, ! =, ! and ! Range operators like BETWEEN and NOT BETWEEN List operators like IN and NOT IN©NIIT SQL/lesson 1/Slide 50 of 50
