MIS582 iLab 1 SQL Queries Using MySQL
The purpose of this iLab is to prepare for the first phase of the Course Project. This week, you will learn to create and run SQL SELECT queries from a script in the MySQL database. You will need to create a database in MySQL via Omnymbus, run a SQL script to create tables and insert data, create and execute a script containg SQL SELECT queries using the STUDENT table.
Please ensure that you can connect to MySQL/Omnymbus via the account your Professor has emailed to you. Please consult with the document titled MySQLOmnymbusSupport.docx located in the Doc-Sharing folder titled Omnymbus Tutorial Files for instructions on how to get help for any issues that you are having with the MySQL/Omnymbus Environment.
Due Midnight Mountain Time attached to the Week 1 DropBox. OR let me know if you are going to be delayed!
SQL file named Lab1_Query.sql containing SELECT statements
Text document named Lab1_Output.txt containing labeled output
Upload files to the Week 1 iLab Dropbox.
Please do not zip the files
Omnymbus – MySQL at the edupe database server.
Access the software at https://devry.edupe.net:8300
If you have any problems, connection, password, technical, etc ONLY your instructor can assist. Using any other Help facility will delay the resolution of the problem as the request is forwarded in all cases to the instructor.
STEP 1: Logging in to Omnymbus
Look at your email account to obtain the MySQL/Omnymbus account and password that your Professor has emailed to you.
To help you log into MySQL Omnymbus environment, download the tutorial Login MySQL Omnymbus Environment in the Doc-Sharing folder titled “Omnymbus Tutorial Files”.
STEP 2: Create a Database and modify your script to reference your Database
Create a MySQL database:
Download the tutorial Creating a Database in MySQL Omnymbus Environment from the folder in Doc-Sharing titled Omnymbus Tutorial Files. Follow the steps to create a database in MySQL, especially paying attention to the database naming conventions specified in the tutorial.
Download the Wk1LoadDatabaseScript.sql file from Doc Sharing in the folder titled iLab Documents.
STEP 3: Running script file in MySQL, create SQL
Download the tutorial Running SQL Scripts in MySQL Omnymbus environment from the folder in Doc-Sharing titled Omnymbus Tutorial Files. Follow those steps and execute the Wk1LoadDatabaseScript.sql file to create the tables and to insert data into them; and then download and run the script file with the queries iLab1QueryScript.sql. This script has the first few queries and it is intended that you should finish it. A demonstration in the Week 1 Live Lecture will be provided.
Create SQL SELECT Queries:
ALWAYS and only use a plain text editor such as Notepad! All word processors will insert hidden tags that confuse database processors.
Using the data in the Student table in the database, expand the supplied starter SQL script file named iLab1QueryScript.sql, containing queries to execute each of the tasks below.
To reference, learn and apply MySQL’s own dialect of the SQL language to this iLab, browse through the file M10C_KROE8352_13_SE_WC10C.pdf in the Doc-Sharing folder titled My SQL Documents.
Save the completed results by copying and pasting to a file named iLab1_Results.txt
An incomplete example is provided in the Doc Sharing.
Write a SQL statement to display Student’s First and Last Name.
Write a SQL statement to display the Major of students with no duplications. Do not display student names.
Write a SQL statement to display the First and Last Name of students who live in the Zip code 82622
Write a SQL statement to display the First and Last Name of students who live in the Zip code 97912 and have the major of CS.
Write a SQL statement to display the First and Last Name of students who live in the Zip code 82622 or 37311. Do not use IN.
Write a SQL statement to display the First and Last Name of students who have the major of Business or Math. Use IN.
Write a SQL statement to display the First and Last Name of students who have the Class greater than 1 and less than 10. Use the SQL command BETWEEN.
Write a SQL statement to display the First and Last Name of students who have a last name that starts with an S.
Write a SQL statement to display the First and Last Name of students having an a in the second position of their first names.
Write a SQL expression to display each Status and the number of occurrences of each status using the Count(*) function; display the result of the Count(*) function as CountStatus. Group by Status and display the results in descending order of CountStatus.
Note: there are examples very similar to these in the Kroenke text
Queries that are correct will be awarded the number of points shown below:
4 points: Query 1
5 points: Query 2 – 9
6 points: Query 10
The following rubrics will be used for incorrect queries:
0 points: Query was not turned in with the assignment.
-4 points: Query will not run.
-3 points: Query runs but is incorrect because query required a WHERE clause to meet requirements which was not included.
-2 points: Query runs but is incorrect because WHERE clause contained errors, gives popup for user input, or only meets partial requirements.
Please Make sure all requirements are met!
