Product Description

From the Back Cover

"Something for everyone . . . this book includes examples to demonstrate concepts along with little-known technical information about SQL Server."
-Melinda S. King, President of Best Technology Solutions, Inc.
* Master the bestselling client/server database platform
* Build high-performance, enterprise-class databases
* Analyze data with advanced SQL techniques

If Microsoft SQL Server 2000 can do it, you can do it too . . .

Here's everything you need to harness the power of SQL Server 2000, Microsoft's high-performance, Web-enabled client/server database and data analysis package. With a focus on performance and data integrity, database expert Paul Nielsen shows you how to design performance into your database from day one. From basic installation to working with XML, monitoring, and performance tuning - a topic so hot, it merits an entire section - Nielsen provides clear instructions, sound theory, and a special "Best Practice" icon that points to the most effective way to accomplish a given task. It's more than a guidebook; it's your total SQL Server 2000 toolkit.

Inside, you'll find complete coverage of SQL Server development
* Design database schemas for performance, adapt integrity, and agility
* Understand ACID and Transactional Integrity and build rock-solid databases
* Use relational algebra to write powerful queries
* Tune indexes as the bridge between data and query
* Analyze Query Execution plans for performance
* Create T-SQL stored procedures, triggers, and user-defined functions
* Share data using DTS, distributed queries, XML, and ADO.NET
* Analyze data with Analysis Services
* Add advanced scalability, availability, performance, and portability to your database

Bonus CD-ROM!
* Sample database applications and code examples from the book
* SQL Server utilities
* Links to Web sites, including the author's SQL Server Web site, www.IsNotNull.com

Format: Paperback
This is a great book. It's throughout and easy to read. Every time I've turned to it, it has the information I need.
Unfortunately, it is plagued by a poor index. Even the most basic SQL is missing from the index. For example, if you are interested in the TOP clause, you won't find it between "tools, developer" and "torn-page detection". Instead you need to look under "Select statement, rows, return few (top keyword)".
With a better index, this book would be more than a great learning tool, but a great reference tool too.

This is a brilliant book, easy to assimilate and quick to progress through.
If you are new to SQL it tells you all the background you need to know, if you have done any programming previously you will find it easy to use and really informative. My copy has post-it-notes sticking out of the top with useful hints written on them. It has really enthused me.
It has great sections for the DBA too, tips on improving performance and security etc.
Truly Fabulous, I love it!

I like this book and use it often. For the basic product, it is as good as Inside SQL Server.
One area in which it could be better is depth. It makes the mistake of trying to cover too many topics. Many of them are simply glossed over. If you need good T-SQL advice, DTS info or replication recommendations, get another book or books in addition to this one.
By and large though this is a book that you will find useful if you manage SQL Servers on a regular basis.

I've been using T-SQL professionally for over six years. SQL Server 2000 Bible has taught me more detail and depth about the tools that I use, and I enjoyed the author's style and humor. He made the concepts clear and understandable, great for the beginner or the experienced programmer. I reccomend this for anyone who wants to learn to take SQL Server to it's highest potential.

If you have a multi-page Acrobat Form and want to automatically fill the form with SQL Server , optionally emailing/faxing it, PF-Merge will do that job for you, without programming. It also merges images!
Thought I share the above freely downloadable treasure with my fellow Cyberfriends. PF-Merge supports over 20 database platforms and its utilities do not time-out.
