How to create a database on SQL Server management studio? A tutorial.

SQL stands for Structured Query Language. SQL is used to communicate with a database. SQL statements are used to perform tasks such as update data on a database, or retrieve data from a database. Some common relational database management systems that use SQL are Oracle, Sybase, Microsoft SQL Server, Access etc. Although most database systems use SQL, most of them also have their own additional proprietary extensions that are usually only used on their system.

SQL code is divided into four main categories:
  • Queries are performed using  SELECT statement, which is further divided into clauses, including SELECT, FROM, WHERE and ORDER BY.
  • Data Manipulation Language (DML) is used to add, update ,select or delete data like SELECT,UPDATE,INSERTE, DELETE commands
  • Data Definition Language (DDL) is used for managing tables and index structures. Examples of DDL statements include CREATE, ALTER, TRUNCATE and DROP.
  • Data Control Language (DCL) is used to assign and revoke database rights and permissions. Its main statements are GRANT and REVOKE.
