SQL | Setting criteria using WHERE exercise | List all the events occurring in February 2005
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.
- Go into SQL Server Management Studio;
- Open the SQL file you've just unzipped (you can press CTRL + O to do this); then
- Execute this script.
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).
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.
Create a query which lists out all of the events which took place in February 2005:
Your query should return these two events.
To put it another way, list out all the events which took place between 1st February 2005 and 28th February 2005.
Save this query as February 2005, then close it down.
WHERE EventDate LIKE '2005-02%'
WHERE EventDate BETWEEN '2005-02-01' AND '2005-02-28'
Use the YEAR function for an even easier way ...
WHERE Year(EventDate) = '2005' AND Month(EventDate) = '2'
WHERE Year(EventDate) = '2005'
AND Month(EventDate) = '2'
AND DAY(EventDate) BETWEEN '1' AND '28'
Better - but you shouldn't put the inverted commas round the numbers, as they aren't text!
where DATEPART(yyyy, EventDate) = 2005 and
DATEPART(month, EventDate) = 2
