    Hi guys, looking for a bit of SQL related advice please.
    I'm looking to learn SQL code but dont know where to start. By SQL i mean the actual language and then move on to SQL server after that.

    I assume SQL is the lauguage and SQL server is where you run queries in etc?
    Also, what program would i need to write SQL, like create my own SQL database and run queries from my datebase.

    You can download, MySQL, postgres, MSSQL Express, Firebird, MariaDB, Derby, HSQL.

    You can write DDL or DML SQL in a text editor like notepad. You can create a database with DDL and write queries with DML.

    Its probably easiest to use MSSQL Express and the management studio that Microsoft provide.
