CREATE Table Example

CREATE Table Example

Following is an example, which creates a CUSTOMERS table with ID as primary key and NOT NULL are the constraints showing that these fields can not be NULL while creating records in this table:
SQL> CREATE TABLE CUSTOMERS(
   ID   INT              NOT NULL,
   NAME VARCHAR (20)     NOT NULL,
   AGE  INT              NOT NULL,
   ADDRESS  CHAR (25) , 
   PRIMARY KEY (ID)
);
You can verify if your table has been created successfully by using DESC command as follows:

SQL> DESC CUSTOMERS;
Field   | Type          | Null | Key | Default | Extra
--------+---------------+------+-----+---------+------
ID      | int(11)       | NO   | PRI |         |      
NAME    | varchar(20)   | NO   |     |         |      
AGE     | int(11)       | NO   |     |         |      
ADDRESS | char(25)      | YES  |     | NULL    |
