Overview
This course is designed to introduce students to Transact-SQL. It is designed in such a way that the first three days can be taught as a course to students requiring the knowledge for other courses in the SQL Server curriculum. Days 4 & 5 teach the remaining skills required to take exam 70-761.
Prerequisites
    • Basic knowledge of the Microsoft Windows operating system and its core functionality.
    • Working knowledge of relational databases.
Objectives
    • Describe key capabilities and components of SQL Server 2016.
    • Describe T-SQL, sets, and predicate logic.
    • Write a single table SELECT statement.
    • Write a multi-table SELECT statement.
    • Write SELECT statements with filtering and sorting.
    • Describe how SQL Server uses data types.
    • Write DML statements.
    • Write queries that use built-in functions.
    • Write queries that aggregate data.
    • Write subqueries.
    • Create and implement views and table-valued functions.
    • Use set operators to combine query results.
    • Write queries that use window ranking, offset, and aggregate functions.
    • Transform data by implementing pivot, unpivot, rollup and cube.
    • Create and implement stored procedures.
    • Add programming constructs such as variables, conditions, and loops to T-SQL code.
Certification
This course covers the major exam topics required for Microsoft Exam 761 - Querying Data with Transact-SQL
Target Audience
    • The main purpose of the course is to give students a good understanding of the Transact-SQL language which is used by all SQL Server-related disciplines; namely, Database Administration, Database Development and Business Intelligence. As such, the primary target audience for this course is: Database Administrators, Database Developers and BI professionals.
Course Content

      • Introducing T-SQL
      • Understanding Sets
      • Understanding Predicate Logic
      • Understanding the Logical Order of Operations in SELECT statements

      • Using Column and Table Aliases
      • Writing Simple CASE Expressions
    • QUERYING MULTIPLE TABLES
      This module describes how to write queries that combine data from multiple sources in Microsoft SQL Server 2016.
      • Understanding Joins
      • Querying with Inner Joins
      • Querying with Outer Joins
      • Querying with Cross Joins and Self Joins
    • SORTING AND FILTERING DATA
      This module describes how to implement sorting and filtering.
      • Sorting Data

      • Filtering Data with TOP and OFFSET-FETCH
      • Working with Unknown Values
    • WORKING WITH SQL SERVER 2016 DATA TYPES
      This module introduces the data types SQL Server uses to store data.
      • Introducing SQL Server 2016 Data Types
      • Working with Character Data
      • Working with Date and Time Data
    • USING DML TO MODIFY DATA
      This module describes how to create DML queries, and why you would want to.
      • Inserting Data
      • Modifying and Deleting Data
    • USING BUILT-IN FUNCTIONS
      This module introduces some of the many built in functions in SQL Server 2016.
      • Writing Queries with Built-In Functions
      • Using Conversion Functions
      • Using Logical Functions

    • USING SUBQUERIES
      This module describes several types of subquery and how and when to use them.
      Lessons
      • Writing Self-Contained Subqueries
      • Writing Correlated Subqueries
      • Using the EXISTS Predicate with Subqueries
    • USING TABLE EXPRESSIONS
      Previously 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 2016 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.
      • Using Views
      • Using Inline Table-Valued Functions
      • Using Derived Tables
      • Using Common Table Expressions
    • USING SET OPERATORS
      This module introduces how to use the set operators UNION, INTERSECT, and EXCEPT to compare rows between two input sets.
      • Writing Queries with the UNION operator
      • Using EXCEPT and INTERSECT
      • Using APPLY
    • USING WINDOWS RANKING, OFFSET, AND AGGREGATE FUNCTIONS
      This 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.
      • Creating Windows with OVER
      • Exploring Window Functions
    • PIVOTING AND GROUPING SETS
      This module describes write queries that pivot and unpivot result sets. Write queries that specify multiple groupings with grouping sets
      • Writing Queries with PIVOT and UNPIVOT

      • Creating Simple Stored Procedures
      • Working with Dynamic SQL
