http://www.wiseowl.co.uk - Designing basic tables in SQL Server involves deciding which columns the table should include, what the data type of those columns should be (not always an easy choice!) and a few additional properties such as whether the column can be left empty (or NULL) and whether there should be any constraints on the values entered into the column. This video takes you through that process to design and create a simple table to store information about people. The video contains a discussion of the main text, number and date data types in SQL Server - you'll learn the difference between char, varchar, nchar and nvarchar data types, as well as the difference between exact and approximate numerics. The video also covers the basics of inserting and editing data before the final part shows how to automatically generate scripts that will recreate the table and its precious data in the event that you delete it.
