SQL Server “success” with SBS 2003 [Windows Small Business Server 2003 best practices book excerpt]

Hiya – just my daily virtual book reading by posting up a passage from my SBS 2003 “purple book” Today we start to wrap up the SQL Server discussion!


Enjoy your success. You’ve had a busy chapter so far performing the following SQL Server-related duties:

1                    You learned SQL Server basics.

2                    You created a SQL Server database title SSLDOG.

3                    You created a table titled “Tracking” in the SSLDOG database.

4                    You entered data for SPRINGERS in the Tracking table.

5                    You queried (used) the data in the Tracking table by executing a simple SQL query.


Chapter 14 Database Management With SQL Server 2000

I want to emphasize one final point before you move on: This short chapter on SQL Server is only a start, and you have a lot to learn about SQL Server 2000 if you so desire. In other words, for those readers who complain in posted reader reviews at Amazon and other online book sellers that I don’t cover specific SBS components at the Ph.D. level, I hope I’ve sufficiently managed your expectations about the depth to which I can delve regarding individual BackOffice applications. No hard feelings, but there are many fine books (and large books at that) dedicated to individual applications, such as SQL Server 2000.
