54 Error in Instruction
re:
SELECT OrderID, SUM(Quantity)
From [Order Details]
Where OrderID BETWEEN 11000 AND 11002
GROUP BY OrderID

Text reads, "If we didn't supply the GROUP BY clause, the SUM would
have been of all the values in all of the rows for the named column."

BUT

If you remove the "GROUP BY OrderID" line, an error occurs.

INSTEAD should be:
SELECT SUM(Quantity)
From [Order Details]
Where OrderID BETWEEN 11000 AND 11002

146-147 Error in Text
If you look at pages 146 - 147 at figures 5-6 and 5-8, you will see the CustomerName field is set to varbinary(30).

The images should show it is varchar(30).

233 Error in Figures 8-13 adn 8-21
Line reads: "I can then add in my new column, and reset the Primary Key as shown in Figure 8-13 (select both rows, right click and choose Set Primary Key)." Now, when I do this, my table shows key icons on both the CustomerID column and the Sequence columns, while the example Figure 8-13 (and subsequent figure 8-21) still shows the Key icon only on the CustomerID column. This leads me the figure examples should show both key icons.
