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 query to list out the following columns from the tblEvent table:

  • EventName
  • EventDate

Your rows should appear in date order, with the most recent event coming first.

The last event in our database was on 14th November 2007

Make sure you've included comments in your query, and indented it sensibly

Save this query as Listing events in reverse date order, then close it down.
