Example text

Chapter 1 introduced tables, columns, and constraints; other database object types (such as views, indexes, synonyms, and sequences) will be introduced in later chapters. Almost all SQL data definition commands start with one of the following three keywords: • CREATE, to create a new database object • ALTER, to change an aspect of the structure of an existing database object • DROP, to drop (remove) a database object For example, with the CREATE VIEW command, you can create views. With the ALTER TABLE command, you can change the structure of a table (for example by adding, renaming, or dropping a column).

SQL supports two types of variables: • Column name variables: The name of a column stays the same, but its value typically varies from row to row while scanning a table. • System variables: These have nothing to do with tables; nevertheless, they can play an important role in SQL. They are commonly referred to as pseudo columns. See Table 2-4 for some examples of Oracle system variables. Table 2-4. Examples of Oracle System Variables (Pseudo Columns) Variable Description SYSDATE The current system date in the database CURRENT_DATE The current date at the client application side SYSTIMESTAMP The system date and exact time, with time zone information LOCALTIMESTAMP The system date and exact time, with time zone information, at the client application side USER The name used to connect to the database The difference between dates (and timestamps) at the database side and those at the client application side can be relevant if you are connected over a network connection with a database in a remote location.

Querying EMPLOYEES and DEPARTMENTS tables When running scripts, the output is appended to the Script Output window.

For example, the COLUMN command does not change the column headings, but SET FEEDBACK OFF works as expected. Saving Commands to a Script After taking time to create a complex statement, it is wise to save that command to a script that you can run later.
