This pocket reference provides quick reference information that will help you use SQL*Plus, Oracle's interactive query tool. It summarizes all of the SQL*Plus syntax, including the syntax for new Oracle8i release 8.1.6 features. SQL*Plus is available at every Oracle site-from the largest data warehouse to the smallest single-user system-and it's a critical tool for virtually every Oracle user. Despite its wide use, few developers and DBAs know how powerful a tool SQL*Plus can be. This book boils down the most vital information from Gennick's best-selling book, Oracle SQL*Plus: The Definitive Guide, into an accessible summary. It concisely describes interacting with SQL*Plus, selecting data, formatting reports with SQL*Plus, and tuning SQL queries. It also contains quick references to the SQL*Plus commands and format elements.
