It was the hardest Case I had for today, but I finally managed it. So first of all we need to SELECT last_name, first_name, make sure that they are uppercase by using function UPPER, also pipe them together with “||” operator. Also i used comma and “is” as connectors of strings. After getting Full Name done we definitely need to create kind of hash tables, that will change our Job_ID to corresponding description. Unfortunately, database does not have job_desc field, so I needed to code every job_id, I was lucky that there was only few of them. The last “Not Known” value is shown where there is NULL in the Job_ID. We call our column “Person and Job”. All columns were taken from one table called Employees. Also we are checking for “s” last letter and “c” or “k” first letters. I used UPPER there to make my search consistent. I also ORDER my output by Last Name in alphabetic order.
