SQL Server Tutorial

SQL Server 2014

This tutorial consists of the following lessons:

This SQL Server tutorial is for anyone who wishes to learn how to use SQL Server. It assumes a basic understanding of databases and how they work.

This tutorial covers the 2014 edition of SQL Server (SQL Server 2014). Specifically, it uses (the free) SQL Server 2014 Express with Tools.

If you don't currently have an understanding of how databases work, start with the basic database tutorial first. That tutorial covers the basic concepts of databases, so the examples in this tutorial will make more sense once you return here.

To get the most out of this tutorial, you should have a copy of SQL Server installed on your computer, so that you can go through the examples yourself. If you don't have a copy, that's OK — you should still be able to gain an understanding of what SQL Server is and what's involved in using it.

You will find 3 tutorials here; a SQL Server 2014 tutorial, a SQL Server 2008 tutorial, and a SQL Server 2000 tutorial.
