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.
First (if you haven't already done so) run the script shown above to generate the Doctor Who training database.
Write SQL to create a new table to contain the Doctor Who production companies, beginning like this:
-- create new table to hold rows
CREATE TABLE tblProductionCompany(
ProductionCompanyId int IDENTITY(1,1) PRIMARY KEY,
Your table should have the following columns:
|ProductionCompanyId||The unique number of each company (starting at 1, and going up by 1 for each new company)|
|ProductionCompanyName||The name of each company|
|Abbreviation||The abbreviation for each company|
Extend your query so that it inserts two new rows into this table, beginning like this:
-- create 2 new rows
INSERT INTO tblProductionCompany(
) VALUES ( ...
Finally, get your query to show the rows in your newly created table:
The two Doctor Who production companies
Optionally, save your query as Manual would have been quicker.sql, then close it down.
