Hi : I have been oracle developer for some years. Recently, I start to support SQL server using TSQL. I need a book or not too expensive online course to learn the TSQL 101. I found some material online to learn the SQL Server as database enginer or SQL server managment stuido as a tool. But I need to go back to TSQL to learn how to write a function, package... how to declare variable....etc

Any suggestion?

Hi Ora,

Gail always has great advice so if the book isn't to expensive I'd order it. If your looking for somewhere with a very basic step by step approach with some tools to test the outputs of simple queries etc. you could check out w3schools until the book arrives in the post

Hope it helps,
Craig

You might also click on the Stairways over on the left side. There are a number of series that start out basic and get more advanced as they go.

Also, make sure you check out the question of the day (QotD) on the left side. It is a great learning tool about a variety of topics. Make sure you follow the discussions. Often times the discussion is more informative than the question itself.

Be advised that at least one author over on the "stairway" has an extremely annular fixation on the use of ANSI-only code. Of course, that's great for the basics but it won't cover things like how to use the proprietary UPDATE of SQL Server, which can be a whole lot faster than an ANSI standard update when trying to update many columns. The UPDATE statement in SQL Server doesn't actually meet ANSI standards since you can't list multiple columns around a single "=".

First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column."

I wonder who that might be.

This is specifically why I mentioned to read the discussions.
