If you are using SQL*Plus, you are likely to use the input parameters. And if you omit one of them, SQL*Plus will show prompt for it, like this:
create table one_true_lookup_table (
one_table_to_find_them integer primary key,
) tablespace and_in_the_darkness_bind_them;
The discussions around choice 4 of the 19 March quiz, in particularly those titled "Choice 4's commit is unnecessary" and 'The "last_name" column is unnecessary in Choice 4', made me realize that I need to offer a more explicit definition of what it means for two blogs to have the "same result."
The book OCA Oracle Database 11g: Database Administration I: A Real-World Certification Guide by Packt publishing has been published. The book has been authored by Steve Ries and I was the technical reviewer of the book. It was pleasure reviewing the book as the style of presentation, topics coverage and authenticity of content was pretty impressive.

Somebody was trying to create a striped view based on a table’s
end_date temporal columns. They asked for some help, so here are the steps.
Basically, you create a user-defined data type, or structure:
Previously i showed not obvious example with hint “INDEX_STATS(“OWNER”.”TABLE_NAME”, “INDEX_NAME”, scale, blocks=X, rows=Y)“. Strictly speaking i don’t know how exactly cbo calculates number of index leaf blocks in that case: in those examples they was 1981 for “blocks=1, rows=50″ and 49525 for “blocks=5, rows=10″.
But i know that with “INDEX_STATS(“OWNER”.”TABLE_NAME”, “INDEX_NAME”, scale, blocks=X)” i can set exact blocks number.
Also those test-cases didn’t show when occurs decision changing. So todays my test will show it.
