Yonah's SQL Tip of the Week - Introduction

So one of the new features I want for this blog is a weekly SQL tip. I have worked and chatted with hundreds of developers over the years, and while even the most junior of my colleagues have great experience with the basic SQL commands, very few have mastered even a handful of the less-commonly used functions and features.

I can't begin to tell you how many e-mails and message board posts I've seen where people have created intricate SQL statements where, had they known about some of these features, they could have used only one or two extra words in their query instead of lines.

That's why I am putting these solutions into a weekly tip.
