    Question Unanswered: What are the other Database operations apart from CRUD?

    hey

    first time here.

    I was wondering what other database operations apart from CRUD (Create/Retreive/Update/Delete)?

    seriously i can't think of any other..

    i prefer SIUD to CRUD, because there is a SELECT statement but there is no RETRIEVE statement

    also, CREATE refers to actually creating tables, while INSERT creates the data in tables

    other operations include ALTER, DROP, GRANT, and more

    Ah.. Ok

    I don't really understand why CRUD is grouped together and SUID are grouped together?

    Isn't Select is a kind of retreive?

    Ok, so CRUD is a form of basic database operations?
