Concise, realistic, and hands-on, The Practical SQL Handbook has long been the #1 introduction to SQL. In this new Fourth Edition, Judith Bowman and her colleagues have extended the book to cover four leading database platforms: Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, Informix, and Sybase. Wherever standard SQL can be used on all of these databases, the authors provide it. Where variations exist, the authors illuminate them, showing how to use database-specific SQL features to best advantage. The Practical SQL Handbook covers all the SQL features and concepts most SQL users are likely to need. It starts with a review of SQL's role and evolution, and the fundamentals of effective database design and creation. Learn how to use subqueries to structure queries more effectively; create and use views; enforce security with GRANT and REVOKE statements; perform transactions; optimize SQL statements, and more. The book concludes by presenting solutions to key challenges users face in solving real-world business problems with SQL. For everyone with a basic knowledge of databases, including end-users, Web professionals, and database administrators.
