23. Exercise 1


Good! These two tables allow us to introduce a useful example.

Suppose you want to check the price of a given product over a period when the product is on special offer. First, we would have to join the two tables with ProductId:

FROM ProductPrice Pp
JOIN Orders O
  ON Pp.ProductId = O.ProductId

But if we do this, we won't be able to determine the price of a given product. To do that, we have to add one more condition:

AND O.OrderDate
  BETWEEN Pp.StartDate AND Pp.EndDate

This way we'll bind every order to select a price from the correct period of time.


Now it's your turn!

For the products bought with a special price, show its ID, its price, the ID of every order and the date when the order was placed.

Stuck? Here's a hint!

The duration of the promotional period (the dates of the start and the end of period) is written in the ProductPrice table.


FROM ProductPrice P
JOIN Orders O
  ON O.ProductId = P.ProductId
  AND OrderDate BETWEEN StartDate AND EndDate
