How to use Recursive SQL - A Simple Example
In this episode, learn how to use recursive SQL to simplify your programming. Recursive queries allow a query to query itself until a result set has been established. This can remove the need for loops or iterative processes that can needlessly complicate your SQL. You can describe a problem with a single statement that depends on solutions to smaller instances of the same problem. Recursion is a great method to add to your SQL toolkit! In our simple examples, we’ll calculate a list of years in a CTE, so that we can use that series in other queries.
