sql server 2008 adventureworks database


dear Friends

For my MCTS 70 -433 examination, I recently installed sql server 2008 and installed the sample databases too. but my issue is, in that book they have mentioned a database called "AdventureWorks2008" and the nice thing is I don't have a such a database with me in my sql server 2008. 

And the query is 

-- MERGE Statement
USE AdventureWorks2008
MERGE INTO	Sales.SalesOrderDetailHistory AS SODH
USING Sales.SalesOrderDetail AS SOD
ON SODH.SalesOrderID = SOD.SalesOrderID
AND SODH.SalesOrderDetailID = SOD.SalesOrderDetailID
INSERT (LineTotal, SalesOrderID, SalesOrderDetailID, CarrierTrackingNumber, OrderQty
, ProductID, SpecialOfferID, UnitPrice, UnitPriceDiscount
, rowguid, ModifiedDate, Cancelled)
VALUES(LineTotal, SalesOrderID, SalesOrderDetailID, CarrierTrackingNumber, OrderQty
, ProductID, SpecialOfferID, UnitPrice, UnitPriceDiscount
, rowguid, ModifiedDate, DEFAULT)
UPDATE SET SOHD.Cancelled = 'True'
OUTPUT $action , inserted.* ;	

Please help me to overcome this issue and let me know where can I download that database too.

Thanking you

happy Coding

SQL and Outlook: Enable Database Access and Updates Through Exchange and Any E-mail Client


Using Microsoft technologies, you can insert, edit, query, and delete database entries using any e-mail client such as Hotmail, Outlook, Yahoo, or even WAP phone. While e-mail is certainly a powerful and widely used tool, it is usually not integrated with an application for performing any tasks other than sending reminders. The application scenario described here, an e-mail-based SQL update program, uses a simple data model; however, this solution will apply to any data model that you are working with. It will also eliminate the need for complex n-tier Internet applications and serves as a low maintenance solution for providing data access.

Oracle Linked serve Query performance in 2000 vs 2008 R2 64 Bit

Hi everyone We have started to migrate one of our reporting systems from Sql 2000 to Sql 2008 R2.  One of the steps has been to test the perforance of certain Oracle linked server queries between each server.  We are finding on average 3 fold better perforance stats (in terms of query completion time) on the old server.  This should obviously not be the case.  The new server has signifantly more CPU/Memory/IO resources to play with, and it is 64 bit (not to mention its new!).  Here's what I got so far: Old server: SQL 2000 on W2000 both fully patched.  Old Dell Dual core with 3 GB of Ram running on two soft IDE Mirrored drives (yes I know... it sucks).  It connecting via the MS OLE DB provider for Oracle (9i client) New server: ESX VMware Server with 2 CPU's assigned, 8 GB of ram connected to large HP SAN.  CPU, ram and IO's have all been ruled out as the problem.  We've tried varying network cards with different results so we havent ruled that out yet.  Its connecting via the Oracle provider for OLE DB (11G 64 bit client) The linked server is an Oracle 9i fully patched server.  All three are on the same network backbone. Running a simple select * query on both servers returns the same number of rows (~76 000) .  It takes ~1:20 on the new server and ~0:20 on the old server. In looking at the wait stati

Restore 2005 database on 2008 R2 Trial

I've downloaded SQL Server 2008 R2 Trial and installed it on Windows Server 2008 trial running under Virtual PC on XP. I've made backups of databases on my SQL Server 2005 and tried to restore them using a) the wizard - results in a messagebox saying "Specified cast is not valid" and no backup sets are available in the Restore Database window. b) using T-SQL - results in Msg 3183, Level 16, State 2, Line 1 RESTORE detected an error on page (0:0) in database "dp" as read from the backup set. Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Line 1 RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally. Using the wizard and RESTORE on 2005 for the same database backup works fine. c) Detach on 2005 and Attach on 2008 results in: SQL Server detected a logical consistency-based I/O error: incorrect pageid... Detach and Attach worked fine on 2005 and DBCC CHECKDB revealed no errors. Thanks for any info...

SSRS 2008 R2 Sparklines are only partially visible when rendered in IE7, IE8 and Firefox 3.6

I'm troubleshooting a sparkline/chart rendering issue on the report server and am wondering if anybody has had any similar issue. The sparkline is rendering with a larger apparent size than the column cell where it is located so only a portion of the chart is visible. Charts appeared correctly in BIDS preview but were rendered incorrectly when accessed from the report server in IE7,IE8 and FF3.6 on one machine and from IE8 on another machine. Report rendered correctly when accessed from the report server via IE6 on all machines tested. It rendered correctly when exported to excel or pdf. I submitted a bug report.  It has examples and screenshots. https://connect.microsoft.com/SQLServer/feedback/details/588778/ssrs-2008-r2-sparklines-are-only-partially-visible-when-rendered-in-ie7-ie8-and-firefox-3-6#details Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
