But remember, a query filter "accepts TRUE," meaning that it rejects both rows for which the logical expression evaluates to FALSE and those for which it evaluates to UNKNOWN. So this query returned rows in which a value was present in the region attribute and that value was different than WA. It returned neither rows where the region attribute was equal to WA nor rows where region was NULL. You will get the exact same output if you use the predicate NOT (region = N'WA') because in the rows where region is NULL and the expression region = N'WA' evaluates to UNKNOWN, NOT (region = N'WA') evaluates to UNKNOWN also.
When you want to sort by an expression in ascending order, you either specify ASC right after the expression, such as orderyear ASC, or don't specify anything after the expression because ASC is the default. If you want to sort in descending order, you need to specify DESC after the expression, such as orderyear DESC. SQL and T-SQL both allow you to specify in the ORDER BY clause ordinal positions of columns based on the 40 41 order in which the columns appear in the SELECT list. For example, in the query in Listing 2-4, instead of using: ORDER BY empid, orderyear You could use: ORDER BY 1, 2 However, this is considered bad programming practice for a couple of reasons.
