SQL | Archived exercise | Use CTE to list important people courses
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.
Here are the tables that you will need to do the first part of this exercise:
Initially we only need to show the people having a delegate count of 6 or more
Create a query to show the ids of the people who have attended 6 or more courses:
There are only 3 people
Now turn this into a longer query to show the course names that these people have attended, using a CTE (common table expression) (you'll need to join your CTE to the tblDelegate, tblSchedule and tblCourse tables to accomplish this):
The first few of the 18 rows your query should return
Optionally, save this query as Important people courses, then close it down.
