Subject:Intro level book on Microsoft SQL Server 6.5 From:"Zigo, Joy" <Joy -dot- Zigo -at- HARPERCOLLINS -dot- COM> Date:Tue, 10 Feb 1998 16:35:56 -0500
What book would you recommend to a tech writer who is new to NT and to
SQL, and needs to learn (quickly) to create and restore databases and
the like in the Enterprise Manager window, in order to be able to work
with an app, in order to document the app?
Amazon.com lists several books with titles like "Using MS SQL....," but
I note that the readers who have posted comments on these books say
things like "A pretty good book for people who already know SQL and NT."
What about for people who don't already know?
Thanks for any suggestions!--Joy

Speaking strictly for myself, not for HarperCollins.
