Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

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 the world's leading websites. This database contains a table of websites called tblWebsite with (among others) the following columns:

  • WebsiteName (the name of the website)
  • WebsiteUrl (the website's address)
  • AlexaRankWorld (the website's ranking, as measured by Alexa)

Create a stored procedure which starts as follows:

SQL exercise - Testing conditions (image 1)

Feel free to omit the comments and use different parameter names

Now write the rest of the stored procedure so that it does what the comments suggest it should.  For example, if you run the command EXEC spGooglySites 3 you should see:

SQL exercise - Testing conditions (image 2)

The order of your rows may be different, but there should be 17 in all

Optionally, save the query to generate the stored procedure as Variable detail level.sql, then close it down.
