And sets included in the database. Constraints can be turned off temporarily instead of dropping it. Theory:SQL schema update statements (DDL) Delete or Modify table ALTER TABLE : statement will allow you to add new column or constraint. Create table statement Create .column.definition. Introduction: The schema data Definition Language (DDL) is used for describing a database which maybe shared by many programs written in many languages. Department To delete a column or constraints use DROP followed by the column or constraints name in the position of ADD or MODIFY.To study Data Definition Language Statements. ALTER TABLE employees ADD middle_ name VARCHAR2 (25). modify existing column or constraint. The statement bellow modifies the last name to required column.column.name Alter table statement alter. areas. ALTER TABLE employees ADD middle_ name VARCHAR2 (25).DATABASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM Experiment no. and drop existing constraint after the table is created. The following will add a middle name column to the employee‟s table.set} RACHIT GUPTA 1791562808 T4 . This statement deletes the above column. ALTER TABLE employees DISALBLE PRIMARY KEY. The bellow statements turn off the primary key for employee table.: 2 Aim:. This description is it terms of the names and characteristics of the data items. Adding and deleting constraints are similar to these of the column. A data item is an occurrence of the smallest unit of named data.comma – list) Drop table statement drop.

we see two keywords: we need to SELECT information FROM a table. Theory: SQL SELECT What do we use SQL for? Well. The syntax is as follows: SELECT DISTINCT “column_ name” FROM “table_ name” For example. This. of course.Study of SELECT COMMAND with different clauses.DATABASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM Experiment no. necessarily mean that there will be redundancies. All we need to do is to add DISTINCT after SELECT. We have the most basic SQL structure: SELECT “column name” FROM “table name” To illustrate the above example. What if we only want to select each DISTINCT elements? This is easy to accomplish in SQL. Table Store_ Information RACHIT GUPTA 1791562808 T4 . to select all distinct stores in Table Store_ Information. we use it to select data from the tables located in a database.: 4 Aim:. To select all the stores in this table. assume that we have the the following table: Table Store Information We shall use this table as an example throughout the tutorial (This table will appear in all sections). as well as multiple table names. we key in. SELECT Store_name FROM Store_ Information Result: Store name Los Angeles San Diego Los Angeles Boston Multiple column names can be selected. SQL DISTINCT The SELECT keyboard allows us to grab all information from a column (or columns) On a table. Immediately.

less than <>. will display product that has descriptions There are times you want list items by conditioning two or more characteristics. SELECT DISTINCT store_name FROM Store_ Information Result: Store name Los Angeles San Diego Los Angeles Boston Retrieving data from a tables The SELECT statement can be used to retrieve data from any or all columns from a table. will display product selling at $50 WHERE description IS NULL. For example. ! =. Here is how you would list the name the price of the products has the price valueless than $100. price. Where clause is used when only a subset of all the rows in a table Is required. Say that you have a table called product. and etc. The above statements will display product that are less than or greater then $1000.<= greater then or equal to. description price FROM product. price FROM product WHERE( name = „Printer‟ OR name = „Scanner‟) AND price<= 100. In stands for every columns in a table. FROM – specifies the table required to retrieve information from. In this case. SELECT name. description. ^ = not equal to >=.DATABASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM we key in. And will result true when both conditions are met while OR will result true when either conditions is true. description. = equal to >. Here are operators that may be used in the WHERE clauses. SELECT * FROM product WHERE price < 50 OR price > 1000. IN operator can be used instead of OR. less than or equal to. Here is RACHIT GUPTA 1791562808 T4 . here is bow you would accomplish it. This is the statement to retrieve all the columns from the table product. SELECT name. say that we want to retrieve only the product name. SELECT name. How about if we want search product by specific chrematistics? That is when WHERE clause becomes handy.stands for everything. IS NULL means no value stored in this filed. SELECT * FROM product SELECT – specifies retrieval command plus what to select.< greater then. description and price not everything. The above query will find all the printer and scanners that are less than or equal $100 Note how single quotations are used. will display product that has no description WHERE description IS NOT NULL. * . Logical operators AND and OR is used in SQL as we them in English language. price FROM product WHERE price < 100. WHERE price <= 50. Now. Here is how you would accomplish it. if you want list product that are more than $100 or less than $50. which consists product name. will display product selling c or less WHERE price = 50.

price FROM product ORDER BY price DESC. It could be scan. you cant sure the correct spelling. This example displays list of each product‟s information plus calculated filed that displays item profit [ price – cost] RACHIT GUPTA 1791562808 T4 . etc. Here is how you would do that: SELECT Product_id. Here is an example that uses like operator. description. *.cost FROM product. scan camera. name. name ASC This example simply lists product name. SELECT name. SELECT name. PRINTER.DATABASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM equivalent query that uses IN operator. price . or printers. description. WHERE name LIKE „%scan%‟ BETWEEN operator can be used in numeric values to compare column against a range of inclusive values.-.„Scanner‟) AND price<= 100. scanner. The column aliases display more Understandable column headers instead of actual column names. description “Product description”. cost. Say that you want calculates and display the profit of each item in the product table. To list aall the items that has the word scan in it. we rephrase the statement like this. etc. The retrieved data may not be in any specific order unless other ways specified. changing the column to upper case characters. price FROM product WHERE price BETWEEN 50 AND 100. SELECT name “Product Name”. description. There are more ways to solve this problem include. price FROM product WHERE name IN( „Printer‟ . The LINK operator provides pattern matching for character data and uses that is position – detention. price. / . For example Printer can also be printer. Retrieving Calculated fields You can perform mathematical calculations while retrieving data from tables or views. and the price sorted in descending order and name in ascending order. This is one example all the products between $50 and $100 inclusive. or using LIKE statements. scanners. Data can be sorted using ORDER BY clause in the select statement. SELECT* FROM product WHERE name LIKE „scan% : This will display all the products that start scan. The profit price minus cost. like +. The math operators for sql are same as those of other languages. When you finding an string value.

SQL has several number functions that you can use to manipulate retrieved numbers.Study of single row functions (character. numeric. data functions) Theory: Number Functions You can manipulate retrieved numbers by rounding up to specific precessions or perform extra calculation functionalities. The following are list of functions and example of each.: 5 Aim:. Function Description Example Result RACHIT GUPTA 1791562808 T4 .DATABASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM Experiment no.

the heading is product ip_. We can change the column headingto “product ID” by using following syntax: SELECT column_name “ column_alias” FROM table_name.DATABASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM Concatenation and column alias You can manipulate the retrieved data by joining two columns or changing the column heading. and column heading of name as Product Name. The default heading is actual column name. For example. when you select product_id from product. The following example change and display column heading of product_id as Product ID. SELECT product_id “Product Name FROM product: This example changes the column heading of product_id and name to proper more understandable column headings We can also concatenate two or more fields together RACHIT GUPTA 1791562808 T4 .

if you want to add few days. or SELECT CONCAT(column_name.Row Character Manipulation Functions There are number of string manipulation functions available for use of character output like the CONCAT we saw. month. Single. The following are some list of date functions available in sql: Function Description Example Result RACHIT GUPTA 1791562808 T4 . column_name) FROM table_name. The following are list of those functions with description. For example. if we want join frist_name and last _name together to make up full_name. The following example retrieves concatenated first_name and last name with space between and column heading of Full Name: SELECT frist_name ||‟ ||last_name “Full Name” FROM employees.Row Date Functions All sql data can manipulated on retrieval or displayed as you desire it to be displayed The date functions we are discussing next can be used to manipulate date data types. we can easily do this using following syntax: SELECT column_name || column_name FROM table_name. For instance. example and result: Single.DATABASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM in select statement. This can done using date functions. years to the current date or format the output of the dates retrieved by select statement. Both methods accomplish same results.

This type of scenario is where you would use a group functions.DATABASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM Experiment no. This statement will returns the total amount for the column price which is 870. The following is query to retrieve total price. Function Description Query Example To use a group function in a SQL query. SELECT max(price) RACHIT GUPTA 1791562808 T4 . SELECT sum(price) FROM product. and minimum price from the table “product” assuming the product table has the following values. AVG averages the column. COUNT counts the number of items.price. maximum price. list the function name followed by numeric column name within parentheses. MAX returns maximum number of the column.Study of GROUP FUNCTIONS Theory:Group Functions An SQL group function or aggregate functions performs an operation on a group of rows and returns a single result. and MIN returns minimum number of the column . The following table is summary of some SQL group function & query examples. Product ID Name Description Price SQL statements. This statement will returns the average amount for the column price which is 870/4 or 217. SELECT avg(price) FROM product.50. average price.: 6 Aim :. You may want retrieve group of item-prices and return total.

example that lists. SELECT min(price) FROM product. which returns only rows returned by the frist query but not by the second: SELECT product_id FROM inventories MINUS SELECT product_id FROM order_items. This statement will returns the minimum amount for the column price which is 120. A location_id value that appears multiple times in either or both queries(such as „1700‟) is returned only once by the UNION operater. Conclusion: „ UNION ALL Example The UNION operator returns only distinct rows that appear in either result. SELECT product_id FROM order_items UNION SELECT product_id FROM inventories. SELECT location_id FROM locations UNION ALL SELECT location_id FROM departments. This statement will returns the number of items in table which is 4. MINUS Example The following statement combines results with the MINUS operator. This statement will returns the maximum amount for the column price which is 300. To do this. The UNION ALL operator does not eliminate duplicate. you may wight want list sales of each product identified by product id. For example. GROUP BY Clause with Group Functions Group By is used to categorize the retrieved data. the following is Group By. which returns only those rows returned by both queries: SELECT product_id FROM inventories INTERSECT SELECT product_id FROM order_items. SELECT count (* ) FROM product.DATABASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FROM product. but multiple times by the UNION ALL operator INTERSECT Example The following statement combines the result with the INTERSECT operater. RACHIT GUPTA 1791562808 T4 . while the UNION ALL operator returns all rows.

than the returned values have datatype VARCHAR2. than Oracle evaluates them. The corresponding expressions in the select lists of the component queries of a compound query must match in number and datatype. TO_CHAR (NULL) “Department”. UNION Example The following statement combines the result with the UNION operator.If either or both of the queries select values of datatype VARCHAR2. INTERSECT. then the returned values have datatype CHAR . warehouse_name RACHIT GUPTA 1791562808 T4 . TO_CHAR (NULL) “Warehouse” FROM departments UNION SELECT location_id. This statement shows that you must match datatype (using the TO_CHAR function) when columns do not exist in one or the other table: SELECT location_id.Study of various types of SET OPRATORS Theory: The UNION [ ALL].: 7 AIM:. which eliminates duplicate selected rows. If component queries select character data. department name “Department”.If both queries select values of datatype CHAR. FROM warehouse. from the left to right if no parentheses explicitly specify another order. then the datatype of the return values are determined as follows: . UNION ALL.DATABASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM Experiment no. INTERSECT and MINUS. If a SQL statement contains multiple set operators. MINUS Operators You can combine multiple queries using the set operators UNION. ALL set operators have equal precedence.

The SELECT statement contains the columns to retrieve and may come from two or more tables. Staff Joints. The syntax for joining multiple tables is as follows: SELECT column.: 9 Aim:. The column name in the WHERE clause is the joint column [keys]. column]. join_ column= table2. In the WHERE clause. product table and inventory table may have joint column of product_id as it show in the following tables. Equality Joints.Study of various types of JOINS Theory: ] Joints Using SQL Joints. you can retrieved data more than one table or views using the keys [Primary & foreign] references. Equality Joints Equality Joints happens when two table are joined based on values in one table being equal to values in anther table. You have to specify the tables in the FROM clause and the joint condition is done in the WHERE clause. specify the table [table. Outer Joints. RACHIT GUPTA 1791562808 T4 . If the selected column exists both tables. For example. FROM table1.join _column. AND & OR also normally used to make multiple joint conditions. you need the table name and dot followed by column name. & Inequaligy Joints.DATABASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM Experiment no. There are about four basic types of joints. table2 WHERE table1.

The following is SQL joint statements to select every customer in the customer table along with their orders if they have orders and if they. The query will select all the selected rows from both tables since there is always product_id equal to product_id in the other table. qty_on_order FROM product. <. order WHERE customer. order 02 WHERE 01. customer_id FROM order 01. firstname. item_id. For example. if you want retrieve customers whom ordered same products twice or more assuming there is num_order column that keeps track the number of orders customers made. + sign is used in the WHERE clause beside the child table within parentheses. It‟s opposite of inner joints. product_id Product table is specified in the SELECT statements to issue the product the product_id and the reason is. qty_on_hand. price FROM customer. product_id exists both tables and if you don‟t specified which table to select from. customer_id. Here is how you would do this using a self joints: SELECT 01. customer_id (+). inventory WHERE product. >. This query simply created two table alias. name. =. item_id = 02. you will receive ambiguous error. qty_ordered. item_id AND 01. For example you might want select all your customers along with their orders if they have orders. 01 and 02 which represents two copies of the table order then compares if item_id exists both table when order is placed two or more times by a customer.num_order>1. to define an inequality condition. price. Self Joints Self Joints is joint of table by it self. This type of joint is rarely used since joint. lastname. Outer Joints Outer Joints is joint condition where all the rows of a table are selected along with then matching rows in the other table.DATABASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM The query to perform equality joints might look like this: SELECT product. etc. customer_id = order. product_id = inventory. product_id. This type of joint is rarely used since joint columns are keys & inequality comparison of the keys has no RACHIT GUPTA 1791562808 T4 . Inequaligy Joints Inequaligy Joints is when each record in one table is joined with every record in the second table using operators <>. SELECT customer.

SELECT first Name ||‟„||lastName “ Full Name” FROM customer. order WHERE customer. customer_id < order.DATABASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM meaningful applications. customer_id. RACHIT GUPTA 1791562808 T4 .

Sql view is similar to the query in access so that you retrieve data from a table and store it in a view. although these must supply a truncation length (as they have no maximum length) and must therefore be the last key columns in the key. The values from these two columns will be stored in this view. to ensure that the index provides a true ordering. all types can be used in an index key including LongText8 and LongText 16. Views are often created because of security reasons or to retrieve and store data from different tables. Indixes: Indixes in the store database are B+tree structures with a fixed size key.statement : CREARE [UNIQUE] INDEX index. Here is an example of creating a view: CREATE VIEW product_view AS SELECT name.name ON table-name VIEWS SQL View is a virtual or temporary table.DATABASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM Experiment no: 10 Aim: To Study views and indices. This means that text keys may easily generate large indexes. which selects two columns. If a text key column does not supply a truncation length. The name of the view we just created is product_view. description FROM product. Apart from Binary and LongBinary columns. Create index statements Create-index. Select statements is used to retrieve data from a table. Such a key column must always be the last one in the key. and maximum length text column cannot be indexed. RACHIT GUPTA 1791562808 T4 . Keys in DBMS may be truncated by specifying the length of a text column to be used it the index key. Name and desc from product table. You can create a view same way as a table. the full length of the table column is used. You can create because of security reasons or to retrieve and store data from different tables.
