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.
This will generate the database that you'll need to use in order to do this exercise (note that the database and script are only to be used for exercises published on this website, and may not be reused or distributed in any form without the prior written permission of Wise Owl).
The aim of this exercise is to create a new summary table listing all the continents. Write a SELECT statement which returns the following summary data for each continent.
Use COUNT, MIN and MAX to get the above output (see below).
To get the number of countries, for example, you could use DISTINCT:
,Count(DISTINCT(CO.CountryID)) AS [Countries in Continent]
To turn this into a table, use the INTO command just above the FROM keyword, followed by the name Continent_Summary.
Run your revised query, then look in Object Explorer to check the new table exists:
If the table doesn't appear, try refreshing the tables folder.
Run your query again - it should crash, because the table already exists.
Add a command to delete the Continent_Summary table if it exists at the beginning of your query, so that each time you run the query it will recreate a new copy of the table.
Optionally save this as Continental Counting.sql, and close it down.
