If you have a copy of "Oracle:the Complete Reference" you will find a section called, "Turning a Table on its side". This demonstrates the basics of pivoting.

I hardly think of views as an "advanced topic". But you're entitled to your opinion.

There are two webistes I can recommend:

http://www.utexas.edu/its-archive/windows/database/datamodeling/dm/overview.html

For an overview to data modeling and database design.

and

http://www.databaseanswers.org/

For about 200 free database designs, covering many common problems. You will want to revise the design to suit your own requirements. Received on Thu Sep 06 2007 - 08:51:35 CDT
