Focusing on standard ANSI SQL with a learn-by-doing approach, this book organizes SQL subtopics into short chapters. Readers first learn the features of a SQL command, then its usage, based on management questions that typically arise in the management decision-making process. Provides additional examples of the supplemental commands provided in the Oracle implementation of SQL. Ensures that all of the SQL concepts and commands covered (except in SQL *Plus and PL/SQL) are equally applicable to database management system software that follows the ANSI SQL standard—including DB2, SQL Server, and SYBASE. Integrates numerous exercises and examples throughout. Offers detailed coverage of SQL, including SQL *Plus and Oracle Database Administration. Covers Data Definition Language with SQL. A valuable reference for SQL programmers, systems analysts, database programmers, and database administrators.
