Rules and Guidelines for Viewing and Managing Data

Rules and Guidelines for Viewing and Managing Data

You can view and edit data in a
data set
from the
Tables
tab in a
data set
page.
Consider the following rules and guidelines when you view or edit data in a
data set
:
  • The default SQL query is SELECT * FROM.
  • You can use the WHERE clause with SELECT queries.
  • You cannot run a SELECT query with aggregate functions such as COUNT, MIN, MAX.
  • You cannot run a SELECT query with a GROUP BY clause.
  • You cannot run a SELECT query with Joins.
  • If a table or column name contains spaces or special characters, you must enter the name in double quotes (") when you use it in a query.
  • To run a query that uses the WHERE clause with the date data type, you must enter TO_DATE in the SELECT statement.
    For example:
    SELECT * from INVOICES where INVOICE_DATE=TO_DATE('01/06/2003 00:00:00','mm/dd/yyyy hh24:mi:ss')
    .
  • You cannot run an SQL query with a table alias.
  • You cannot run an SQL query that contains the table name with the owner name.
  • You cannot insert numeric data with data values outside the range of -9223372036854775807 to 9223372036854775807.
  • You cannot use a comma (",") in a tag as the comma is a tag delimiter. Use commas to separate tags.
  • You cannot view or edit data in tables that contain the special character "." in the table name or column name.
  • You cannot view and edit data from an Oracle database that is of BLOB and RAW data type.
  • You cannot view or edit data from a data type of a database that is mapped to Oracle BLOB and RAW data types.
