Implicit conversions between xml data types are supported only if the source or target is untyped xml. Otherwise, the conversion must be explicit.

They help prevent programming bugs by ensuring that the data supplied is of the same nature that the data is supposed to be (remember 1/1/1980 means something different as a date than as a number) and ensures that the kind of operation performed is what you expect.

Within each topic covered, some background is provided, and then we work through an example if appropriate. Examples are generally created to be short, and yet still quickly get at several of the concepts you need for whatever topic is being covered at the time. info Introduction In terms of ‘‘what to cover next,’’ there is a logical progression. We review tools and data types early on (since there are changes there), but move on very fast to topics that assume you are already comfortable with the product.

The actual data for a database is stored in tables. Each table definition contains the metadata (descriptive information about data) that describes the nature of the data the table is to contain. Each column has its own set of rules about what can be stored in that column. A violation of the rules of any one column can cause the system to reject an inserted row or an update to an existing row, or prevent the deletion of a row. A table can have additional objects associated with it — these objects exist only within the construct of a particular table (or, in somewhat rare cases, a view).
