Playing with SQL using OpenOffice database

I have been having great fun learning about SQL, Structured Query Language, playing with my OpenOffice database.

I have been using the free OpenOffice suite of programs for years now instead of paying for the MS Office suite of programs.  I think OpenOffice is great and recommend that people check it out as an alternative to purchasing MS Office.

I added data of my own to the various tables that I created with the the data given in Assign #1, so that I have 9 students, 9 instructors, and 9 courses so I can run a real variety of SQL queries.

It is satisfying to create a SQL query formatted correctly, that is "successfully executed" and runs to produce results.
