shipstreet, shipcity, shipstate, shipzip
FROM customers JOIN orders USING (customer#)
WHERE shipdate IS NULL
WITH CHECK OPTION;


1. Which of the following statements is correct?
a. No DML operations can be performed on the CHANGEADDRESS view.
b. The CHANGEADDRESS view is a simple view.
c. The CHANGEADDRESS view is a complex view.
d. The CHANGEADDRESS view is an inline view.


2. Assuming there’s only a primary key, and FOREIGN KEY constraints exist on the underlying tables, which of the following commands returns an error message?
a. UPDATE changeaddress SET shipstreet = '958 ELM ROAD' WHERE customer# = 1020;
b. INSERT INTO changeaddress VALUES (9999, 'LAST', 'FIRST', 9999, '123 HERE AVE', 'MYTOWN', 'AA', 99999);
c. DELETE FROM changeaddress WHERE customer# = 1020;
d. all of the above
e. only a and b
f. only a and c
g. none of the above


3. Which of the following is the key-preserved table for the CHANGEADDRESS view?

d. none of the above


4. Which of the following columns serves as the primary key for the CHANGEADDRESS view?

b. ORDERS
c. CUSTOMERS and ORDERS
d. Neither—the DELETE command can’t be used on the CHANGEADDRESS view.


6. Which of the following is correct?
a. ROWNUM can’t be used with the view because it isn’t included in the results the subquery returns.
b. The view is a simple view because it doesn’t include a group function or a GROUP BY clause.
c. The data in the view can’t be displayed in descending order by customer number because an ORDER BY clause isn’t allowed when working with views.
d. all of the above
e. none of the above


7. Assuming one of the orders has shipped, which of the following is true?
a. The CHANGEADDRESS view can’t be used to update an order’s ship date because of the WITH CHECK OPTION constraint.
b. The CHANGEADDRESS view can’t be used to update an order’s ship date because the Shipdate column isn’t included in the view.
c. The CHANGEADDRESS view can’t be used to update an order’s ship date because the ORDERS table is not the key-preserved table.
d. The CHANGEADDRESS view can’t be used to update an order’s ship date because the UPDATE command can’t be used on data in the view.


Questions 8–12 are based on successful execution of the following command:
CREATE VIEW changename

a. A key-preserved table isn’t included in the view.
b. The view was created with the WITH CHECK OPTION constraint.
c. The inserted record couldn’t be accessed by the view.
d. None of the above—an INSERT command can be used on the table as long as the PRIMARY KEY constraint isn’t violated.

a. The CREATE OR REPLACE VIEW command can be used to re-create the view with the necessary column included in the new view.
b. The ALTER VIEW . . . ADD COLUMN command can be used to add the necessary column to the existing view.

a. INSERT
b. UPDATE
c. DELETE
d. All of the above can be performed on a view containing a group function.
