Aliases

USING ALIASES

CREATE WITH SELECT

We can create a table using existing table [along with data].
Syntax:
Create table <new_table_name> [col1, col2, col3 … coln] as select * from
<old_table_name>;
Ex:
SQL> create table student1 as select * from student;
Creating table with your own column names.
SQL> create table student2(sno, sname, smarks) as select * from student;
Creating table with specified columns.
SQL> create table student3 as select no,name from student;

Creating table with out table data.
SQL> create table student2(sno, sname, smarks) as select * from student where 1 = 2;
In the above where clause give any condition which does not satisfy.

INSERT WITH SELECT
Using this we can insert existing table data to a another table in a single trip. But the table structure should be same.
Syntax:
Insert into <table1> select * from <table2>;
Ex:
SQL> insert into student1 select * from student;
Inserting data into specified columns
SQL> insert into student1(no, name) select no, name from student;

COLUMN ALIASES
Syntax:
Select <orginal_col> <alias_name> from <table_name>;
Ex:
SQL> select no sno from student;
or
SQL> select no “sno” from student;

TABLE ALIASES
If you are using table aliases you can use dot method to the columns.
Syntax:
Select <alias_name>.<col1>, <alias_name>.<col2> … <alias_name>.<coln> from <table_name> <alias_name>;
Ex:
SQL> select s.no, s.name from student s;
