Databases for 'Learning SQL'

Question regarding 'Learning SQL'. Does the example code download on this book's page create the databases used by all of the examples in this book or does the database need to be downloaded somewhere? Thanks.

  • Hello Todd,

    Thanks for your interest in Learning SQL. As discussed in the preface of this title you will need to download a database to use the examples in the book:

    "While the examples in this book run on MySQL, Oracle Database, and SQL Server, I had to pick one of those products to host my sample database and to format the result sets returned by the example queries. Of the three, I chose MySQL because it is freely obtainable, easy to install, and simple to administer. For those readers using a different server, I ask that you download and install MySQL and load the sample database so that you can run the examples and experiment with the data."

    Hope this helps and have a great day!

    Kind regards,
