Selecting data in SQL videos | SQL Queries Part 7 - Using Functions in Queries
Posted by Andrew Gould on 30 May 2012
Learn the basics of using functions in Microsoft SQL Server queries. This video teaches you how to use functions to create calculated columns in a query, including where to find a list of available functions, how to work out which parameters you need to fill in using the help system, and how to combine functions in more elaborate calculations.
You can increase the size of the video:
You can view the video in full screen mode as shown on the left, using the icon at the bottom right of the frame.
You can also increase the quality of the video:
You can improve the resolution of the video using another icon at the bottom right of the frame. This will slow down the connection speed, but increase the display and sound quality. This icon only becomes visible when you start playing the video.
Finally, if nothing happens when you play the video, check that you're not using IE in compatibility view.
I have got a copy of the database the accompanies this SQL video. When I expand Database Diagrams, I don't have anything. Why is that?
For the very simple reason that you can't script the creation of a database diagram! Fortunately, we do have a video which includes a section on creating database diagrams which you can view here https://www.wiseowl.co.uk/videos/sql2016/design-relational-database.htm
I hope that helps!
