Description

T-SQL window functions – also known as windowing functions, OVER functions, or analytic functions – are tremendously useful. These functions make building complex aggregations much simpler. In this step-by-step tutorial, we will lead you through T-SQL window functions. At its end, you'll embrace this topic with ease and feel comfortable using window functions in SQL Server databases.

Window functions are so powerful that they serve as a dividing point in time: people talk about SQL Server before window functions and SQL Server after window functions. Because they were introduced into the standard relatively recently, these functions aren't covered in many T-SQL courses.
