INTRODUCCIÓN


This 5-day instructor led course provides students with the technical skills required to write basic Transact-SQL queries for Microsoft SQL Server 2012. This course is the foundation for all SQL Server-related disciplines; namely, Database Administration, Database Development and Business Intelligence. This course helps people prepare for exam 70-461.

All the labs for this course can be performed using the provided virtual machines.  However, if you have a Microsoft Windows  Azure account and the classroom virtual machines connect to the internet you may be able to connect to your Windows Azure server and database from the classroom.  Many of the labs in this course are enabled for you to perform the lab while connected to your own Windows Azure database in the cloud. Your instructor should be able to provide a current list of Windows Azure enabled labs. To acquire a trial Windows Azure account click here.

QUERYING MULTIPLE TABLES


This module explains how to write queries which combine data from multiple sources in SQL Server. The module introduces the use of JOINs in T-SQL queries as a mechanism for retrieving data from multiple tables.

Lecciones

Understanding Joins

Querying with Inner Joins

Querying with Outer Joins

Querying with Cross Joins and Self Joins

SORTING AND FILTERING DATA


This module explains how to enhance queries to limit the rows they return, and to control the order in which the rows are displayed. The module also discusses how to resolve missing and unknown results.

Lecciones

Sorting Data

Filtering Data with a WHERE Clause

Filtering with the TOP and OFFSET-FETCH Options

Working with Unknown and Missing Values

WORKING WITH SQL SERVER 2012 DATA TYPES


This module explains the data types SQL Server uses to store data. It introduces the many types of numeric and special-use data types. It also explains conversions between data types, and the importance of type precedence.

Lecciones

Introducing SQL Server 2012 Data Types

Working with Character Data

Working with Date and Time Data

USING BUILT-IN FUNCTIONS


This module introduces the use of functions that are built in to SQL Server Denali, and will discuss some common usages including data type conversion, testing for logical results and nullability.

Lecciones

Writing Queries with Built-In Functions

Using Conversion Functions

Using Logical Functions

Using Functions to Work with NULL

GROUPING AND AGGREGATING DATA


This module introduces methods for grouping data within a query, aggregating the grouped data and filtering groups with HAVING. The module is designed to help the student grasp why a SELECT clause has restrictions placed upon column naming in the GROUP BY clause as well as which columns may be listed in the SELECT clause.

Lecciones

Using Aggregate Functions

Using the GROUP BY Clause

Filtering Groups with HAVING

USING SUBQUERIES


This module will introduce the use of subqueries in various parts of a SELECT statement. It will include the use of scalar and multi-result subqueries, and the use of the IN and EXISTS operators.

Lecciones

Writing Self-Contained Subqueries

Writing Correlated Subqueries

Using the EXISTS Predicate with Subqueries

USING TABLE EXPRESSIONS


This module introduces T-SQL expressions which return a valid relational table, typically for further use in the query. The module discusses views, derived tables, common table expressions and inline table-valued functions.

Lecciones

Using APPLY

USING WINDOW RANKING, OFFSET AND AGGREGATE FUNCTIONS


This module introduces window functions including ranking, aggregate and offset functions. Much of this functionality is new to SQL Server 2012. It will cover the use of T-SQL functions such as ROW_NUMBER, RANK, DENSE_RANK, NTILE, LAG, LEAD, FIRST_VALUE and LAST_VALUE to perform calculations against a set, or window, of rows.
