Special semantics regarding UNION can also be employed to allow “recursive” queries, where a SELECT statement can draw upon the set of rows that have previously been selected.
CTEs can also be applied to DML constructs UPDATE, INSERT and DELETE on some databases, both as a source of CTE rows when combined with RETURNING, as well as a consumer of CTE rows. This is used to support backend-specific prefix keywords such as those provided by My SQL.
Remember that every table row has a Primary Key column that is unique.
The SQL UPDATE VIEW command can be used to modify the data of a view.
To do this, we could pass the name of each column explicitly: Advanced: The SQL statements we're learning here will eventually be used to integrate the applications you'll build with a database.
For example, it's easy to imagine a web application that has many users.
When the subquery fails to find a matching row in tbl B, the subquery returns NULL.
The columns that are not on the list retain their original values.Subclasses should override the default behavior, which is a straight identity comparison.**kw are arguments consumed by subclass compare() methods and may be used to modify the criteria for comparison. Common table expressions are a SQL standard whereby SELECT statements can draw upon secondary statements specified along with the primary statement, using a clause called “WITH”.We specify the names of the columns we want to SELECT and then tell SQL the table we want to select them FROM.We want to select all the rows in our table, and we want to return the data stored in any and all columns in those rows.
