SQL | Stored procedures exercise | Create procedure to show August events
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.
The aim of this exercise is to create a stored procedure called uspAugustEvents which will show all events that occurred in the month of August:
The top 5 results you should get by executing uspAugustEvents.
First write the SQL script which will retrieve event information for the month of August.
Use DATEPART(MM, Expression) or Month(Expression) to extract the month.
Now add the following code at the top of your query:
CREATE PROC NameOfProcedure
Replace the name of the procedure with uspAugustEvents, and then run the code to create it. Check that your procedure has been created:
You should see your new procedure listed in Management Studio (you may need to refresh first).
Optionally, save your SQL as Nothing ever happens in August.sql, then close it down.
