When you are working with your SQL Server data, you will often need to join tables to produce the results your application requires. Having a good understanding of set theory, and the mathematical operators available and how they are used to join tables will make it easier for you to retrieve the data you need from SQL Server.]]>http://www.sqlservercentral.com/articles/Stairway+Series/75777/Wed, 30 Nov 2011 07:00:00 UThttp://www.sqlservercentral.com/articles/Stairway+Series/75777/Stairway to T-SQL DML Level 4: The Mathematics of SQL: Part 1A relational database contains tables that relate to each other by key values. When querying data from these related tables you may choose to select data from a single table or many tables. If you select data from many tables, you normally join those tables together using specified join criteria. The concepts of selecting data from tables and joining tables together is all about managing and manipulating sets of data. In Level 4 of this Stairway we will explore the concepts of set theory and mathematical operators to join, merge, and return data from multiple SQL Server tables.]]>http://www.sqlservercentral.com/articles/Stairway+Series/75776/Wed, 16 Nov 2011 07:00:00 UThttp://www.sqlservercentral.com/articles/Stairway+Series/75776/
