Create a Database by Script

SQL Server accepts Transact-SQL (which is an extended version of the SQL standard), so you could create the database by running the following SQL script.

USE master;

To do this, open a new query by clicking New Query in the toolbar and run an SQL CREATE DATABASE statement.

Just as you can specify certain properties when creating a database via the GUI, you can include those same properties when creating a database by script. Here’s an example of specifying settings for the data and log files.

USE master ;
( NAME = Music_dat,
FILENAME = ‘C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL13.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\DATA\Music.mdf’,
SIZE = 10,
( NAME = Music_log,
FILENAME = ‘C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL13.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\DATA\Music_log.ldf’,

What is the difference between SQL Server and SQL?

SQL stands for Structured Query Language. SQL is used to communicate with a database. According to ANSI (American National Standards Institute), it is the standard language for relational database management systems. It is used to perform operations on the data present in database. SQL statements are used to perform tasks such as update data on a database, or retrieve data from a database. Although most database systems use SQL, most of them also have their own additional proprietary extensions that are usually only used on their system. However, the standard SQL commands such as “Select”, “Insert”, “Update”, “Delete”, “Create”, and “Drop” can be used to accomplish almost everything that one needs to do with a database. SQL commands are divided into several different types, among them data manipulation language (DML) and data definition language (DDL) statements, transaction controls and security measures.

Some common relational database management systems that use SQL are: Oracle, Sybase, Microsoft SQL Server, Access, Ingres, etc.

SQL Server is a relational database management system (RDBMS) developed by Microsoft. This product is built for the basic function of storing retrieving data as required by other applications. It can be run either on the same computer or on another across a network. It is platform dependent. It is both GUI and command based software.

SQL Server is available in various editions. Some of the editions are:

  • Enterprise
  • Standard
  • Workgroup
  • Web
  • Developer
  • Express
  • Compact
  • Datacenter
  • Business Intelligence
  • Enterprise Evaluation

So, different enterprises like web development companies, mobile app development companies, banks, outsourcing companies and many other uses RDBMS like (SQL server, Oracle) for smooth functioning of their business.
