How to use a basic ORDER BY clause? Section8

0
Using-the-ORDER-BY-clause
Facilitates sorting of data results in a particular order / direction. The order by clause consists of column identifies that the result is to be sorted on, separated by commas. The column identifier can be a column name / expression / alias / position. Sorting is done in ascending (ASC) or descending (DESC) order on any combination of columns, regardless of whether that column appears in the result. Sorting is by default ascending. Basic SELECT Statements.

It the previous article we’ve discussed about select statement in a sequence of which. We’ve seen a basic select statement the sequel. We discuss how we can be able to manage plate number treeing and deathly Trotz.

We’ve also discussed how we can be able to carry columns from a table how we can be able to perform some condition. I’ve always been using this way in as well as functions how we can be able to perform some mathematical operations as well as how we can be able to use some building function inside a select state.

In this article we’ll discuss about order by a cause. Another important state and one in sequent language. Let’s assume we’re working as and at least we were tasked to create a report that is going to follow some sort of an order and to be able to produce these.We’re going to have to implement an ORDER BY clause. There are two kinds of order.

There is ascending order. Then we have to use a s c then b a descending order or D s c a d forth ordering. If we don’t specify an ascending order then if I execute this statement you will see that the state I said is order. Yes and the order population.

Basic ORDER BY clause?

ORDER BY clause we can also be able to sort using two or more columns for example. We will like to order Montaigne’s by name then by their elevation in a descending order if I execute this statement you will see that this data is sorted by name first and then by elevation.

For example if we look at Rocky Mountains you’ll see that the top peak of the mountain or Moland elbow comes first then the second topic of Montaigne’s which is peaks Pike comes back to the status it is or it is Montaigne’s in ascending form and then with elevation in the informant.

The SQL ORDER BY syntax

So you can keep adding more columns as you wish for an order by clause. Another way to do an ordering is you can be able to refinance the column order Montaigne’s. The second call on the select statements so this. What this means is use mandis for your first ordering in an ascending format and use elevation on the third column.

This is not recommended practice in production but when you are doing any testing you can quickly type the number to be able to sort but another developer columns here then your orders will not be the same. If you’re using an order number instead of a column name or order by.

Learn Microsoft SQL Server SELECT And ORDER By Clauses. How to learn sql server?

Well come to Section 2 in this section we’ll be discussing about select an order by clauses two of the major causes in C will discuss how to use a bezique select clothes how to select or columns how to select some or all columns using column names in your column headings how to perform mathematical oppression how to use system functions.

We’ll also see what conditional evaluation looks like in silly clothes.We’ll see how to select top end values how to filter duplicates how to use basic order by clause. Finally we’ll discuss about exercise questions for the D.S..

 How to use a basic SELECT clause?

We are back to see concert Management Studio Now if you want to follow along you should be able to find lectures to see fall in resources folder for. Let’s first see what the bezique select clause looks like. Let’s change our data is context. CIA factbook DV. Select can be used or the FROM clause to select a number or string. Or at least Trotz.

We’ll see what the FROM clause and what it’s going to help us in a cabbing sections. So look the number literally like the one you see some like 100 or any decimal point like one hundred point ninety eight. You can’t just simply type select plus the number that you want to select. Next you’ll select the query that you want to execute.

As we’ve discussed previously and you click on execute you’ll see the column being selected with 100 9 8 and no column name is available. If you want to provide a column name to little you just selected you can use is reserved for word and this is number. Now if it’s like the column heading will be this is the number and the value of the column only has one recurved.

SQL-Server-SELECT-And-ORDER-1

One hundred ninety eight if you want to select a string or it takes like here it just can’t tie the string itself. It has to be called. Inside a single call. So if I execute this war you see that the string literal We need that single quarter around the text that you’re selecting the same thing goes for dates. If you only select a date literal it has to be quarter to each side a single called like the one you see here how ever if I don’t have that inside a single code sequence server simply returns 0.

How to select all columns ?

In this movie we’ll discuss how this works. All columns and rows from a table we have a fully dedicated section for of course what the FROM clause does is it’s going to help us to reference tables or a subset select statements. To rephrase that so that we can be able to carry combs in the subjects that might if you like to query all in rows and columns form a table you can simply type select stories from a table.

We have a table called country here and if we want to see all columns and all the rules from a table called country we can’t see this. However in production environment this is not recommended as a table could have a lot of rows and columns and it might slow down an hour or so. But in a development environment this will help us see what their rows and columns of a table look like.

In the previous Paragraph we’ve seen how we can be able to select all columns from a table for example from a country we simply did select stories from a country and we were able to see all the columns and all the rows from that table in this movie. Let’s see how we can be able to project or see only some of the columns from that table as well as how we can only be able to filter and see some of the top values of that table.

We only want to see the name of the country and its population size we can specify the column names and we can execute. Now we’re only going to be seeing these two columns on the table next. Let’s look at how we can only be able to see only the top and the values of that tape for example are here to see only the top five by use from a table called for then we can use a top function.

A function can be a top and a number or we can use a top inside Apprentice’s. Now this will become a national function that we can pass a parameter from a procedure to it. Now if I execute this one it’s going to show me only the top five values from a table Weaver.

 

How to filter duplicate in SELECT clause? Section7

How to filter duplicate in SELECT clause

In the previous article we’ve seen how we can be able to implement cange Ivo issuing this statement. We’ve also seen examples using kids when as well as I say in this article we’re going to continue our discussion by looking at filtering in duplicate and a select statement. Let’s see one example here.

When you are working at least you might have to create some reports that is not going to contain any duplicate file use we’re acquiring these Montane table for example you can see a mounted and Rocky’s duplicate that more than 10 times a year. The simplest way for us to filter out this duplicate is using a keyword called District files.

The same query that has this thing. Now you can see that Rocky Mount is only going to appear once. Another way to do it is using a pie so we can get rid of it distinct. But if you use the same columns that we use in the select statement in the group why close that is going to give us the same thing or use as well.
