Calculations on Columns Another option is to calculate the values based on a SELECT statement as the example below shows.
If the data is in 1 or more columns, this approach eliminates the need to calculate the values based on additional parameters or logic.
So if you need some of those basic building blocks those are available and we will walk through some examples in this tip.In addition, SQL Server can calculate SUM, COUNT, AVG, etc.Timothy Warner is a Microsoft Cloud and Datacenter Management Most Valuable Professional (MVP) who is based in Nashville, TN.Check out his Azure and Windows Server video training at Pluralsight, and feel free to reach out to Tim via Twitter.For these type of calculations, check out SQL Server T-SQL Aggregate Functions.
To address the multiple code issues, I would recommend researching stored procedures.
In these examples, both positive and negative whole numbers and decimals are used.
The value calculated by the statement is below the code to serve as a point of reference.
Here are the examples we will cover: Calculations on Values As a starting point, values themselves can have mathematical operations performed on them.
So in the code below we are performing addition ( ), subtraction (-), multiplication (*), division (/) and a combination of operations.
Let me give you the Get-Uptime function definition in total, and then I’ll explain each line to you: Once you’ve loaded the Get-Uptime function into session memory, you can call it at any time during that session by typing Get-Uptime and pressing ENTER.
