Assignment: Migrating Flat File Data into Relational Tables
Outcomes addressed in this activity:
· Use a variety of methods to populate a database table with data.
· Examine the data placed into the table using SQL queries.
IT234-2: Explore Data Definition Language (DDL) statements to define the database structure or schema.
There are varieties of ways to get data inserted into a table. One way entails manual data entry through use of the Designer tools contained in Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS). Another way involves importing the data from an Excel file. You will import the Movies flat file dataset into a temporary table in the Movies database. The data from the temporary table will then be migrated to the normalized tables using a provided data migration script. Use the import instructions document to accomplish this task.
After you have entered new data, you will query the table, based on specific data requested. You can leverage the revised database design diagram as a resource for this assignment. Download and use this diagram for your analysis.
