Creating the HumanResources.myTeam Table
Many of the code examples in Importing and Exporting Bulk Data require a special-purpose test table named myTeam. Before you can run the examples, you must create the myTeam table in the HumanResources schema of the AdventureWorks database.
AdventureWorks is one of the sample databases in SQL Server 2008. Adventure Works Cycles is a fictional manufacturing company used to demonstrate database concepts and scenarios. For more information about this database, see AdventureWorks Sample Databases.
The myTeam table is contains the following columns.
Primary key for the rows. Employee ID of a member of my team.
Name of a member of my team.
Title the employee performs on my team.
Date and time the row was last updated. (Default)
To create HumanResources.myTeam
Use the following Transact-SQL statements:
--Create HumanResources.MyTeam: USE AdventureWorks; GO CREATE TABLE HumanResources.myTeam (EmployeeID smallint NOT NULL, Name nvarchar(50) NOT NULL, Title nvarchar(50) NULL, Background nvarchar(50) NOT NULL DEFAULT '' ); GO
To populate HumanResources.myTeam
Execute following INSERT statements to populate the table with two rows:
USE AdventureWorks; GO INSERT INTO HumanResources.myTeam(EmployeeID,Name,Title,Background) VALUES(77,'Mia Doppleganger','Administrative Assistant','Microsoft Office'); GO INSERT INTO HumanResources.myTeam(EmployeeID,Name,Title,Background) VALUES(49,'Hirum Mollicat','I.T. Specialist','Report Writing and Data Mining'); GO
These statements skip the fourth column, Background. This has a default value. Skipping this column causes this INSERT statement to leave this column blank.
