Hi
i am unable to alter a newly created table in oracle.I have to change the properties of a column value.When i click edit button,the fields are not active.I tried to give additional privilege to this user as 'alter table' which didn't give any result. Any ideas?Thanks.

cheers

Those who live by the GUI, die by the GUI.
SQL always works for me.

Just curious which GUI do you use as you did not specify it.
However I bet it contains HELP item on the right side of the menu bar...

For your second question:
Oracle SQL Reference (part of Oracle documentation, foung eg.online on http://tahiti.oracle.com)
Chapter 2 Basic Elements of Oracle SQL
Datatypes
Oracle Built-in Datatypes
DATE Datatype + TIMESTAMP Datatype

I was thinking that if there was no choice but to use his tool, then he must be doing a homework assignment, and was going to move the post to the homework section.
