SQL | Archived exercise | Inline table fn to show courses between 2 dates
This exercise is provided to allow potential course delegates to choose the correct Wise Owl Microsoft training course, and may not be reproduced in whole or in part in any format without the prior written consent of Wise Owl.
The answer to the exercise will be included and explained if you attend the relevant Wise Owl course (sadly, only in the UK for now).
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:
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:
The function takes 2 arguments of datetime format
The command above should return 6 rows:
The 6 rows which start and finish in January 2010
Optionally, save this query as Courses between dates.sql, then close it down.
