    Your question doesn't make sense.

    SQL is not a product that you can "compare" to Oracle.

    SQL is a query language which is used by all relational databases including Oracle.

    If you really want to learn databases, you might want to start understanding what SQL is.
    I will not read nor answer questions where the SQL code is messy and not formatted properly using [code] tags: http://www.dbforums.com/misc.php?do=bbcode#code

    I suspect sathiyavathi wants to know the differences between Oracle and SQL server
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton

    They are two very different platforms, despite the fact that they achieve the same goal.

    For an Oracle DBA, the "A" strongly stands for "Administrator", since Oracle requires a great deal of esoteric knowledge to properly tune the system and keep it running.

    For a SQL Server DBA, the "A" strongly stands for "Architect", since SQL Server is simpler to administer and a larger portion of a DBA's time is spent doing consulting for application developers on the best was to design a database schema, write sql queries, etc.
    If it's not practically useful, then it's practically useless.
