Default CH 15 - SP GetDOB is missing


I am trying to read through chapter 15 which discusses SQL 2005 indexes. I am setting up the people database for the examples and I beleive that the GetDOB stored proc is missing. I would be grateful if someone could point me at the code for this missing procedure so I can carry on with my study. Many thanks in advance

Hi Enrico

Thanks for buying the book, and taking the time to work thru the examples.

Here is the GetDOB SP

If you find anymore SPs are missing please let me know, and I'll try and get them posted here a bit faster next time.

USE [People]


create proc [dbo].[GetDOB] @DOB datetime output as
    -- generate DOB's
    declare @dayofYear int, @yearOffset int, @BaseYear int, @startDate varchar(12) -- , @DOB datetime

    select @BaseYear = 2006 - 110

    select @dayOfYear = rand() * 365, @yearOffset = rand() * 110
    select @startDate = '1 Jan ' + convert(varchar(4),(@BaseYear + @yearOffset))

    select @DOB = dateadd(dd,@dayOfYear,@startDate)
