Steve Wolk
PC Richard & Son

Presentation Description

Do you use SQL? Do you use it to its full capabilities? SQL is an amazingly powerful tool, but can seem overwhelming at first. In fact, it can sometimes seem like magic! Come join us for a session on SQL that begins with the basics and builds into very useful techniques you can use every day. Using magic to help explain some key concepts will make this session entertaining as well as educational. Discover how to use SQL not only for data definition and data manipulation, but also as a wonderful ad-hoc query tool. Save time writing reports and get the answers your business needs in seconds. Learn how to easily execute an SQL statement on your PC that will pull data from your IBM i into an Excel spreadsheet! We will cover other practical examples, such as easily processing a job log for the information you need.
