In this article, we will understand the concept of SQL tables and the different operations related to it:
What is a TABLE?
A table is a collection of data organized in rows and columns.
💡 A table has a specified number of columns but can have any number of rows.
How does a TABLE work?
You may easily create data for real-time analysis and reporting by using the query TABLE. It can connect datasets, filter datasets, apply SQL query functions, batch together datasets (union), and more.
In tables, data is systematically arranged in a row-and-column structure like a spreadsheet. Each column represents a record field, and each row represents a detailed record.
Let's see an example of a library table:
The Catcher in the Rye
J. D. Salinger
In the above table:
- "library" is the table's name.
- "book_ID", "book_Name" and "book_Author" are the names of columns.
- The combination of data from multiple columns creates a row, e.g. (00002, "Anna Karenina,” and “Leo Tolstoy").
What can we do with the TABLE?
You can perform various operations using a table. We do support some of the table operations, such as:
- Display a list of data from tables using 'join'. And many more…💨
By default, the table will be created in the public schema. Furthermore, you can also create and specify tables to other specific schemas. Click here for more info.
