Find the Explanation You Need—Quickly, Easily, Every Time

If you use SQL to program, administer, or query databases, SQL Instant Reference is an essential desktop resource. Inside, you'll find complete, alphabetical coverage of all SQL statements, plus detailed explanations of common statement elements.
