Module 1: Introduction to Microsoft SQL ServerThis module introduces SQL Server, the versions of SQL Server, including cloud versions, and how to connect to SQL Server using SQL Server Management Studio.
Module 2: Introduction to T-SQL QueryingThis module describes the elements of T-SQL and their role in writing queries. Describe the use of sets in SQL Server. Describe the use of predicate logic in SQL Server. Describe the logical order of operations in SELECT statements.
Module 3: Writing SELECT QueriesThis module introduces the fundamentals of the SELECT statement, focusing on queries against a single table.
Module 4: Querying Multiple TablesThis module describes how to write queries that combine data from multiple sources in Microsoft SQL Server.
Module 5: Sorting and Filtering DataThis module describes how to implement sorting and filtering.
Module 6: Working with SQL Server Data TypesThis module introduces the data types SQL Server uses to store data.
Module 7: Using DML to Modify DataThis module describes how to create DML queries, and why you would want to.
Module 8: Using Built-In FunctionsThis module introduces some of the many built in functions in SQL Server.
Module 9: Grouping and Aggregating DataThis module describes how to use aggregate functions.
Module 10: Using SubqueriesThis module describes several types of subquery and how and when to use them.
Module 11: Using Table ExpressionsPreviously in this course, you learned about using subqueries as an expression that returned results to an outer calling query. Like subqueries, table expressions are query expressions, but table expressions extend this idea by allowing you to name them and to work with their results as you would work with data in any valid relational table. Microsoft SQL Server supports four types of table expressions: derived tables, common table expression (CTEs), views, and inline table-valued functions (TVFs). In this module, you will learn to work with these forms of table expressions and learn how to use them to help create a modular approach to writing queries.
Module 12: Using Set OperatorsThis module introduces how to use the set operators UNION, INTERSECT, and EXCEPT to compare rows between two input sets.
Module 13: Using Windows Ranking, Offset, and Aggregate FunctionsThis module describes the benefits to using window functions. Restrict window functions to rows defined in an OVER clause, including partitions and frames. Write queries that use window functions to operate on a window of rows and return ranking, aggregation, and offset comparison results.
Module 14: Pivoting and Grouping SetsThis module describes write queries that pivot and unpivot result sets. Write queries that specify multiple groupings with grouping sets
Module 15: Executing Stored ProceduresThis module describes how to return results by executing stored procedures. Pass parameters to procedures. Create simple stored procedures that encapsulate a SELECT statement. Construct and execute dynamic SQL with EXEC and sp_executesql.
Module 16: Programming with T-SQLThis module describes how to enhance your T-SQL code with programming elements.
Module 17: Implementing Error HandlingThis module introduces error handling for T-SQL.
Module 18: Implementing TransactionsThis module describes how to implement transactions.
