    You might want to start with understanding that MySQL (the forum you posted in) is a completely different thing than SQL Server. Please post in the approriate section.
    I will not read nor answer questions where the SQL code is messy and not formatted properly using [code] tags: http://www.dbforums.com/misc.php?do=bbcode#code

    1. get a copy of sql server. there is a free version for download called express or you can buy the developer edition on amazon for ~$45.
    2. read the documentation. it is called SQL Server Books Online.
    3. participate in community message boards like this one.
    4. go to a users group meeting if there is one near you.
    5. the Microsoft press books are rather good, but I have not been reading the admin ones in quite some time.
    “If one brings so much courage to this world the world has to kill them or break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.
