How To Add More Data to the Testing Table?

If you want to continue with other tutorial exercises in this FAQ collection, you need to add more data to the testing table. Follow the script below to add a new column and more rows:

ALTER TABLE fyi_links ADD tag VARCHAR(8)
GO

UPDATE fyi_links SET tag = 'DEV' WHERE id = 101
GO
UPDATE fyi_links SET tag = 'DBA' WHERE id = 102
GO
UPDATE fyi_links SET tag = 'SQA' WHERE id = 103
GO

INSERT INTO fyi_links VALUES (104, 
   'www.mysql.com', '', '0', '2006-01-01', 'DBA')
GO
INSERT INTO fyi_links VALUES (105,
   'www.oracle.com', '', '0', '2005-01-01', 'DBA')
GO
INSERT INTO fyi_links VALUES (106,
   'www.php.net', '', '0', '2004-01-01', 'DEV')
GO
INSERT INTO fyi_links VALUES (107, 
   'www.winrunner.com', '', '0', '2003-01-01', 'SQA')
GO

UPDATE fyi_links 
   SET counts = CAST(LOG(id)*1000000 AS INT) % 1000
GO

SELECT * FROM fyi_links
GO
id   url                notes  counts  created     tag
101  dev.fyicenter.com  NULL   120     2006-04-30  DEV
