Please note this is just a data file. You will have to follow my earlier blog post to create database without log file read here.

Additionally this is sample database so install on your development environment. Recently I had seen this on few production database and when I asked production DBA why they exists, they told me it is ‘for practice’. I suggest you do your practice on your development box and not on production box.

  1. Have you ever thought why people do sports? Absolutely, many people seem not to know the reasons. As a anectode, there are many people who do sports for nothing around us. Everyday we can encounter with these people. They regularly do sports; however, none of them realizes the benefits and importance of sports. In fact, vice versa, some people want to be fit and attractive, look smart. Unfortunately, these people can’t consider other benefits of sports. In my opinion, there are several benefits of sports that people often do not consider: sports are required to be healthy people, are needed for enjoyment, and are great market for countries’ economies.

  2. Does anyone know if the data in the tables, and hence databases, is the same across Adventureworks 2005, 2008, and 2012? In other words if I ran a query in all three databases would I get the same answer?
