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 done so, run the stored procedure in the above folder to generate a database of training courses and delegates.

The tblPersonStatus table contains two rows as follows:

SQL exercise - Variables (image 1)

A person is either current or obsolete!

By linking the tblPerson table to this tblPersonStatus table, create a simple query to show the number of people who still work at their companies:

SQL exercise - Variables (image 2)

A suggestion for what the query could look like

By declaring and using two variables (called @NumberCurrent and @NumberObsolete, perhaps?) create a query to show how many people there are in the database for each of the two statuses (stati?) Current and Obsolete:

SQL exercise - Variables (image 3)

What the result of running your query should look like

Optionally, save this query as Count persons by status.sql, then close it down.
