There are only a limited number of types of workers, and definitely only a limited number of genders, so I’ve added a WORKER_TYPE code table and a GENDER code table. Code tables act as the definitive source of categories, classes, types, and so on when specifying codified information in a content table like WORKER. Here are some of the reasons that it’s important to use code tables: • They constrain the values entered into a table to an authoritative list of entries. This improves quality. • The primary key of a code table is typically an identifier (ID) that is a sequence-generated number with no inherent meaning other than it is the primary key’s value.

Ins. 2. Write the DML scripts to insert the publications by Date and Darwen from Table 1-2. 3. ins extension to both files. 4. Execute your scripts in SQL*Plus by typing an at sign (@) followed by the filename at the SQL> prompt. The publication table should now have eight rows. And, if you run the Darwen script again, you won’t get any duplicate-value errors, because the SQL detects whether Darwen’s entries already exist in the database. Listings 1-16 and 1-17 show my solutions. Listing 1-16. ins 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 INSERT INTO publication ( id, title, written_date ) VALUES ( 200, 'An introduction to Database Systems', to_date('20030101', 'YYYYMMDD') ); INSERT INTO publication ( id, title, written_date ) VALUES ( 200, 'The Third Manifesto', to_date('20000101', 'YYYYMMDD') ); INSERT INTO publication ( id, title, written_date ) VALUES ( 200, 'Temporal Data and the Relational Model', to_date('20020101', 'YYYYMMDD') ); 17 18 CHAPTER 1 ■ GEN ESIS 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 INSERT INTO publication ( id, title, written_date ) VALUES ( 200, 'Database in Depth: Relational Theory for Practitioners', to_date('20050101', 'YYYYMMDD') ); COMMIT; Listing 1-17.

Listing 1-21 shows how I got rid of him. 21 22 CHAPTER 1 ■ GEN ESIS Listing 1-21. del 1 2 DELETE FROM author WHERE id = 300; Oooooh, no more Darwen. Let’s fix that quickly! Type ROLLBACK; at your SQL*Plus prompt and then press the Enter key. The transaction— everything you did from the last time you executed a COMMIT or ROLLBACK statement—has been rolled back. So it’s as though we never deleted Darwen’s entries. You didn’t really think I was going to let you delete Darwen, did you? Now we are ready to reach the summit of the mountain SQL, the ultimate, heavy-duty query statement: SELECT.
