Creating Basic SQL Reports in PostgreSQL

What Are SQL Reports?

Since you are reading this article, you probably know that SQL is a language for working with relational databases. It has been a standard in the IT industry for several decades. If you are serious about your career, you should learn it.

One of the most popular databases is PostgreSQL. It is open source, is still gaining in popularity, has a huge online community, and is highly sought after by employers. Still hesitating? Read “The Future of SQL” then come back here for a free SQL course.

But let's go back to the SQL reports themselves. What are they all about?

Imagine your company has a database containing, for example, data on customers, transactions, money flows, etc. Lots of data. To obtain, for example, a list of customers who have spent the most on specific products in a given period, it is best to use SQL.

Why? Because SQL is the easiest way to compile the data contained in databases. Instead of worrying about how to do it or what is happening inside the database, you just write an SQL query and get the result – in our case, an SQL report.

You can struggle with a spreadsheet, or you can write a few lines of SQL code and get the data you need. For a detailed example, see the article “How to Calculate Revenue Growth in SQL.”

Of course, more complicated and complex reports require the use of more advanced features of SQL. There will be time for them later; for now, start with the basics. This course is perfect for that.

SQL reports are very often the basis for strategic business decisions. In most industries, the reality is you're either data-driven or you're out. Don't get beat by the competition! Check out “Why Does Your Company Need Data Analysis?” for more information.

What Will You Learn in Creating Basic SQL Reports in PostgreSQL?

Creating Basic SQL Reports in PostgreSQL

Our course is designed to guide you through the entire learning process. Don't worry that it might be too difficult. If you know the basics of SQL, you’ll do fine. If you have never written a single PostgreSQL query, start with our course on SQL Basics in PostgreSQL, then come back here.

By choosing our interactive PostgreSQL course, you’ll learn to build SQL reports from scratch using PostgreSQL’s GROUP BY and aggregate functions. You’ll learn how to manage long queries, how to include multiple metrics in a single SQL query, and how to work with a PostgreSQL database with multiple tables.

The first exercise is a warm-up. Here, you’ll refresh your skills by writing basic queries. You’ll also learn about the database model we work on.

You’ll use aggregate PostgreSQL functions to count objects based on your criteria and to calculate total amounts based on other objects.

The next step for successful data analysis is classification. You’ll learn to do this with CASE WHEN and GROUP BY. Very few SQL reports are possible without these two clauses, so it's important to know them well. In this part of the course, you’ll also learn about the most common beginner mistakes and how to avoid them.

Last but not least, you’ll find out how to compare different business groups in the same SQL report. There are three ways to do it and you’ll learn them all.

In this month’s free SQL course, you’ll also learn how to:

  • Use PostgreSQL aggregate functions such as COUNT() and SUM().
  • Calculate average values, maximum averages, and minimum averages.
  • Insert multiple metrics in SQL reports.
  • Calculate ratios and percentages.
  • Compare global and granular metrics.
  • Use common table expressions (CTEs).

Why Choose Courses?

Whatever you want to learn, the most important thing is to find a credible and reliable source of information. Of course, you can learn from YouTube or from courses offered by platforms that teach a bunch of unrelated subjects at the same time.

However, it is much better to choose a platform focused only on what you want to learn. It’s a better way of gaining knowledge; see the testimonials and ratings from satisfied users for more proof.

Our courses are interactive. They provide a real hands-on learning experience. You write real SQL queries and see their results. You don't need to install anything or set anything up. As long as you have Internet access and a browser, you can learn SQL with us.
