General Questions

subquery in insert into clause

what is the use of using subquery in insert into clause.  e.g. insert into (select empno from emp)     values(1234)  regards  kiran

Not really of common use, I think, but WITH CHECK OPTION option could be one reason for using that. Let's see an example :  SQL> INSERT INTO   2  (SELECT empno, ename, deptno FROM emp WHERE deptno < 20)   3* VALUES (1111, 'Brown', 30) SQL> /    1 row created.  That's the same as  SQL> insert into emp (empno, ename, deptno)   2  values(1111, 'Brown', 30);  But  SQL> INSERT INTO   2  (SELECT empno, ename, deptno FROM emp WHERE deptno < 20 WITH CHECK OPTION)   3* VALUES (2222, 'Green', 30) SQL> /  (SELECT empno, ename, deptno FROM emp WHERE deptno < 20                                   * ERROR at line 2: ORA-01402: view WITH CHECK OPTION where-clause violation     SQL>   Paul
