Steps to Retrieve Records with SQL Server Management Studio: SQL Programming

As I have discussed in my first SQL article that the database scenario is AdventureWorks, on which we will work on. The AdventureWorks database is stored on the LocalDb (Currently used) database server. The problem we are sorting out is, the details of the sales persons are stored in the SalesPerson table. The management wants to view the details of the top three sales persons who have earned a bonus between $4,000 and $6,000.

To retrieve the specified records, programmer need to create a query first and then execute the query to generate the report. To display the top three sales person records from the SalesPerson table, programmer need to use the TOP keyword. In addition, to specify the range of bonus earned, you need to use the BETWEEN range operator.

To create the query by using the SQL Server Management Studio, just follow simple steps written below:
  • Select Start>Programs>SQL Server Management Studio to display the Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Window. Connect to Server dialog box is displayed by-default, if not you can simple open it from File>Connect Object Explorer.
  • Select the server name from the Server name drop-down list.

    Note: Name of the server is computer specific. In this example, the name of the server is (LocalDb)\v11.0. You can use the default server as the database server.
  • Fill the details as given in the image and click on Connect button. It will connect to the server and management studio will be displayed as shown in the image.

  • Expand the Databases node and it will show all the databases on this server. Now right click on AdventureWorks2012 database and select New Query.
  • Name of the Query Editor window is specific to machine.
  • Type the following query in the Query Editor window:
FROM [AdventureWorks2012].[Sales].[SalesPerson]
Where Bonus BETWEEN 4000 AND 6000

  • Click on Execute (in SQL editor toolbar) or press F5 and check the result as shown in the following image:

difference between structure and union in C Language

In c language article we will see the difference between union and structure. Both are the user define datatype in c language. See the table which is mentioned below: ASP.NET Video Tutorial Series Structure Union1.The keywordstruct is used to define a structure 1. The keyword union is used to define a union. 2. When a variable is associated with a structure, the compiler allocates the memory for each member. The size of structure is greater than or equal to the sum ofsizes of its members. The smaller members may end with unused slack bytes. 2. When a variable is associated with a union, thecompiler allocates thememory by considering the size of the largest memory. So, size of union is equal to the size of largest member. 3. Each member within a structure is assigned unique storage area of location. 3. Memory allocated is shared by individual members of union. 4. The address of each member will be in ascending order This indicates that memory for each member will start at different offset v…

Difference between Linear search and Binary Search in c language

SQL Video Channel : Download all SQL Video

Binary Search Linear Search Works only on sorted items. such as  1,2,3,4,5,6  etc
Works on sorted as well as unsorted items. 12,4,5,3,2,1 etc Very efficient if the items are sorted Very efficient if the items are less and present in the beginning of the list. such as Suppose your list items are : 12,3,4,5,1 and you want to search 12 number then you get beginning in the list. Works well with arrays and not on linked lists. Works with arrays and linked lists.
Number of comparisons are less More number of comparisons are required if the items are present in the later part of the array or its elements are more.

Memory representation of Linked List Data Structures in C Language

Memory representation of Linked List

             In memory the linked list is stored in scattered cells (locations).The memory for each node is allocated dynamically means as and when required. So the Linked List can increase as per the user wish and the size is not fixed, it can vary.

               Suppose first node of linked list is allocated with an address 1008. Its graphical representation looks like the figure shown below:

      Suppose next node is allocated at an address 506, so the list becomes,

  Suppose next node is allocated with an address with an address 10,s the list become,

The other way to represent the linked list is as shown below:

 In the above representation the data stored in the linked list is “INDIA”, the information part of each node contains one character. The external pointer root points to first node’s address 1005. The link part of the node containing information I contains 1007, the address of next node. The last node …
