HumanResources.myTeam Sample Table (SQL Server)

Applies to: SQL Server Azure SQL Database Azure SQL Managed Instance Azure Synapse Analytics Analytics Platform System (PDW)

Many of the code examples in Importing and Exporting Bulk Data require a special-purpose test table named myTeam. Before you can run the examples, you must create the myTeam table in the HumanResources schema of the AdventureWorks2022 database.


AdventureWorks2022 is one of the sample databases in SQL Server.

The myTeam table contains the following columns.

Column Data type Nullability Description
EmployeeID smallint Not null Primary key for the rows. Employee ID of a member of my team.
Name nvarchar(50) Not null Name of a member of my team.
Title nvarchar(50) Nullable Title the employee performs on my team.
Background nvarchar(50) Not null Date and time the row was last updated. (Default)

To create HumanResources.myTeam

  • Use the following Transact-SQL statements:

    --Create HumanResources.MyTeam:   
    USE AdventureWorks2022;  
    CREATE TABLE HumanResources.myTeam   
    (EmployeeID smallint NOT NULL,  
    Name nvarchar(50) NOT NULL,  
    Title nvarchar(50) NULL,  
    Background nvarchar(50) NOT NULL DEFAULT ''  

To populate HumanResources.myTeam

  • Execute following INSERT statements to populate the table with two rows:

    USE AdventureWorks2022;  
    INSERT INTO HumanResources.myTeam(EmployeeID,Name,Title,Background)  
       VALUES(77,'Mia Doppleganger','Administrative Assistant','Microsoft Office');  
    INSERT INTO HumanResources.myTeam(EmployeeID,Name,Title,Background)  
       VALUES(49,'Hirum Mollicat','I.T. Specialist','Report Writing and Data Mining');  


    These statements skip the fourth column, Background. This has a default value. Skipping this column causes this INSERT statement to leave this column blank.
