Show relational algebra expressions for:
1) The City of all CUSTOMERS having an order with sales person Jones

2) The names of all the salespeople with the names of customers who have ordered from them. Include salespeople who have no orders.

cheers!!

What is "relational algebra"? Also what approaches have you tried? Post your queries here and what problems you are having with them and we will work from there.

Thanks for the responese.

I am thinking something like
1) SALESPERSON JOIN (Name='Jones') Where Customer [City]

2)SALESPERSON JOIN [Name] ORDER [Customer]

You think that this would work?

--1
Select Customer.City, Count(*) As OrderCount
From Order Inner Join Customer On (Order.CustName = Customer.Name)
Where Order.SalesPersonName = 'Jones'
Group By Customer.City
--2
Select SalesPerson.Name, IsNull(Order.CustName, 'No Orders') As CustomerName
From SalesPerson Left Join Order On (SalesPerson.Name = Order.SalesPersonName)

Thanks
