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 table variable, and populate it so that it holds the category, country and continent with the highest number of events for each:
Where we should end up - although there's a way to go yet to get there.
The easiest way to start is to first write three select statements:
Use apostrophes to create the first column value for each row (eg 'Category'); the other two columns come from combining SELECT TOP 1 with a GROUP BY clause.
Now declare a TABLE variable with three columns: Source, Winner and Number of events. Insert the results of your three SELECT statements into this table, either by using UNION or by using 3 separate INSERT statements.
You should now be able to display the results of this query:
Some would say that the combination of these three haven't produced winners!
Optionally save this as Declaring winner table.sql, then close it down.
