Hi guys,

I'm rather new to SQL. I've recently bought a book on SQL but it's from 1992, luckily it was only a dollar (US dollar). What I want to know is whether there's a difference in terms of commands and whatnot between each version.
If there is, is it still worth learning SQL-92? I suppose you could argue that it gives you the fundamental knowledge that you could build upon.

Thanks

You would be better off downloading a free book that's current.

Something like http://it-ebooks.info/book/219/

Doesn't say that in the preamble.

This is a bit like boxing, where you have half a dozen different standards for what is essentially the same thing: in this case, I want to use some industry-standard commands to interrogate my database.
