  • A distinct keyword
  • Group functions
  • A group by clause

Expressions

  • Group functions
  • A group by clause
  • A distinct keyword

  • There are Not Null Columns in the base tables that are not selected by view.

Example:  Create a view named employee salary having minimum, maximum and average salary for every department.

CREATE VIEW EMPSAL (NAME, MINSAL, MAXSAL, AVGSAL) AS

SELECT D.DNAME, MIN(E.SAL),MAX(E.SAL),AVG(E.SAL)

 FROM EMP E, DEPT D

WHERE E.DEPTNO=D.DEPTNO GROUP BY D.DNAME;

To view the result of the command above you can give the following command:

SELECT * FROM EMPSAL;

You may get some sample output like:

NAME   MINSAL          MAXSA                 AVG                    SAL

--------------         ---------                ---------         -------------

ACCOUNTING            1300                      5000           2916.6667

RESEARCH                 800                      3000               2175

SALES                      950                      2850           1566.6667

To view the structure of the view so created, the command is given below:

DESCRIBE EMPSAL;

Name                                                 Null?                   Type

---------------                                   ------------   ---------------------

NAME                                                VARCHAR2           (14)

MINSAL                                               NUMBER

MAXSAL                                              NUMBER

AVGSAL                                              NUMBER
