Sample text

Consider Listing 1-1, which is a simple C# code snippet that reads in a flat file of names and displays them on the screen. Listing 1-1. Dispose(); The example performs the following functions in an orderly fashion: 1. The code explicitly opens the storage for input (in this example, a flat file is used as a “database”). 2. It then reads in each record (one record per line), explicitly checking for the end of the file. 3. WriteLine(). 4. And finally, it closes and disposes of the connection to the data file.

This results in a more complex three-valued logic (3VL). Let me give you a quick example to demonstrate. ” If I refused to tell you what value x stood for, you would have no idea whether x was less than, equal to, or greater than 10; so the answer to the question is neither true nor false—it’s the third truth value, unknown. Now replace x with NULL and you have the essence of SQL 3VL. NULL in SQL is just like a variable in an equation when you don’t know the variable’s value. No matter what type of comparison you perform with a missing value, or which other values you compare the missing value to, the result is always unknown.

Also, you can specify at most two WHEN SOURCE NOT MATCHED clauses. If you specify two of these clauses, the first must have an AND clause with a predicate. The MERGE statement is an important new DML feature, and the second MERGE example demonstrates the MERGE statement DELETE functionality that I mentioned previously in this section. Shift table will contain the data shown in Figure 2-3. The example in Listing 2-6 builds on Listing 2-5. The lines that are different in this listing are displayed in bold.
