  • Hi,

    That book doesn't have any example code associated with it. The editor of the book sent a note explaining the lack of examples when the book was released, that said: "Solution snippets tend to be small. And the nature
    of SQL is such that queries need to be crafted to match the database
    design. Rarely, if ever, will any reader be able to directly drop our
    SQL into their application. What's important is that they grasp the
    technique of a given recipe, and then adapt that technique to their
    own situation. So the author and I really didn't see whole lot of
    value in downloadable code, in this particular case."
