Data Definition Language

It organises the data in the form of columns and rows. But what does the data field column of table accumulate? How do you describe it using SQL?

The Data definition language (DDL) defines a set of commands used in the modification and creation of schema objects such as indexes, tables, views etc. These commands give the ability to create, drop and alter these objects. These commands are linked to the management and administrations of the databases. Before and after every DDL statement, the current transactions are implicitly committed, that is changes made by these commands are permanently stored in the databases. Let us talk about these commands in more detail:

CREATE TABLE Command

Syntax:

CREATE TABLE

(

Column_name1 data type (column width) [constraints], Column_name2 data type (column width) [constraints], Column_name3 data type (column width) [constraints],

...............................................

);

Where table name assigns the name of the table, column name describes the name of the field, data type specifies the data type for the field and column width distribute specified size to the field.
