Yesterday, April 19, 2017, you asked what T-SQL was.

Here’s a shortened version of Wikipedia’s T-SQL entry header-

“Transact-SQL…is Microsoft’s and Sybase’s proprietary extension to…SQL…[and] interact[s] with relational databases.

T-SQL expands on the SQL standard to include procedural programming, local variables, various support functions for string processing, date processing, mathematics, etc…

Transact-SQL is central to using Microsoft SQL Server.”


Additional correction on top of this, MCSE is not for server only. There are MCSE’s for application solution development in T-SQL and business intelligence that translate customer requirements into database driven applications.
