You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

If you haven't already got it set up in SQL server, restore the Historical Events database from the above folder.

Create a join to list out all of the Asian events in your database.  This is trickier than it looks, as you'll have to create an inner join not just to the tblCountry table, but also to the tblContinent table so that you can put in a WHERE clause:

An example of what the WHERE clause could look like

The final result of running your query should look like this:

SQL exercise - Basic joins (image 2)

Here the events are listed in date order

Save this query as Asian Events, and close it down.
