This new release is tightly integrated with Windows 2000 and offers more support for XML, as well as improved Analysis Services for OLAP and data mining. "Professional SQL Server 2000" provides a comprehensive guide to programming with SQL Server 2000, from a complete tutorial on Transact-SQL to an in-depth discussion of new features, such as indexed views, user-defined functions, and the wealth of new SQL Server features to support XML. Whether you're coming to SQL Server 2000 from another relational database management system, upgrading your existing system, or perhaps wanting to add programming skills to your DBA knowledge, you'll find what you need in this book to get to grips with SQL Server 2000 development. What does this book cover?
Here are just a few of the things covered in this book: a complete introduction to Transact-SQL; Database design issues; creating and using views, stored procedures, and user- defined functions; responding to events with triggers; making your SQL Server secure; retrieving your data as XML; an introduction to Analysis Services; moving data using Data Transformation Services and the bulk copy program; and maintaining the integrity of distributed data with replication. Who is this book for? This book is aimed at the SQL Server developer who wants to make the most out of the new features of SQL Server 2000. No knowledge of SQL Server is assumed, although in order to follow this book, you do need to have an understanding of programming basics such as variables, data types, and procedural programming. Database administration is also covered but only as it affects the SQL Server developer.

About Rob Vieira

Robert Vieira Experiencing his first bout with computing in 1978, Robert Vieira knew right away that this was something "really cool". In 1980 he began immersing himself into the computing world more fully -- splitting time between building and repairing computer kits, and programming in BASIC as well as Z80 and 6502 assembly languages. In 1983, he began studies for a degree in Computer Information Systems, but found the professional mainframe environment too rigid for his tastes, dropping out in 1985 to pursue other interests. Later that year, he caught the "PC bug" and began the long road of programming in database languages from dBase to SQL Server. Rob completed a degree in Business Administration in 1990, and has since typically worked in roles that allow him to combine his knowledge of business and computing. Beyond his Bachelor's degree, he has been certified as a Certified Management Accountant as well as Microsoft Certified as a Solutions Developer (MCSD), Trainer (MCT), and Database Administrator (MCDBA). Rob is currently the Principal Consultant for Database and Storage Technologies with the Technology and Innovation Group at STEP Technology in Portland, Oregon -- a position that offers the high--end consulting and team support he craves. He resides with his wife Nancy, elder daughter Ashley, and new addition Adrianna, in Vancouver, WA.
