  1. Challenge

    Create a Destination Table for the Archived Data

    Create a table in the acweb_arch database for the data to be sent to. Feel free to create one according to your own specifications, or copy and paste the code provided in the lab guide.

  2. Challenge

    Create a Pipeline to Move the Data

    Create a pipeline that moves data from the production Azure SQL database (acweb) to the archive one (acweb_arch).

  3. Challenge

    Convert the Date Columns

    The requesting team has specified that exact timestamps are not wanted in the archive environment because their analysis is only granular down to the day. Within your pipeline, perform a conversion for any columns of the datetime type so that only the day, month, and year are retained.
