What is correlated sub-query?

Posted By :volvo     Posted Date :November 28, 2013    Points :40   Category :Sql Server 
A correlated sub-query is a term used for specific types of queries in SQL. It is a sub-query (a query nested inside another query) that uses values from the outer query in its WHERE clause. The sub-query is evaluated once for each row processed by the outer query.

Here is an example for a typical correlated sub-query. In this example we are finding the list of employees (employee number and names) having more salary than the average salary of all employees in that employee's department.

SELECT employee_number, name
FROM employee AS e1
WHERE salary > (SELECT avg(salary)
FROM employee
WHERE department = e1.department);

Why NoLock is used in Sql Select Query?

applying nolock in select statement will increase
concurreny and performance in fetching.

it does'nt consider the transaction scenario, even if the
transaction is under process not yet commited or rollback
it will fetch the current record

begin tran
insert into tablename

select * from tablename with (nolock)

-- it will display the table with inserted record.
but the transaction is not completed, it can be rollback
so it became dirty read.
