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.

This exercise uses columns from the following two tables:

SQL exercise - Table-valued functions (image 1)

We will use the StartDate column to filter the rows returned

Create a function called fnTableCourses to return a table of all of the courses which start and finish between two specified dates, such that the following query works:

SQL exercise - Table-valued functions (image 2)

The function takes 2 arguments of datetime format

The command above should return 6 rows:

SQL exercise - Table-valued functions (image 3)

The 6 rows which start and finish in January 2010

Optionally, save this query as Courses between dates.sql, then close it down.
