Example text

This will be made clearer later in the book when choosing a primary key. Thinking back to the driver’s license analogy, if the driver’s license card has just a single value (the surrogate key) on it, how would Officer Uberter Sloudoun determine whether you were actually the person identified? He couldn’t, so there are other attributes listed, such as name, birth date, and usually your picture, which is an excellent unique key for a human to deal with (except possibly for identical twins, of course).

It cannot be reiterated enough that tables have no order (the section “The Information Principle” later in this chapter will clarify this concept further). Another concern is that a table may technically have duplicate rows. It is up to you as the developer to apply constraints to make certain that duplicate rows are not allowed. Tables also have another usage, in that the results of a query (including the intermediate results that occur as a query is processing multiple joins and the other clauses of a query) are also called tables, and the columns in these intermediate tables may not even have column names.

If this is the first time you’ve seen the terms listed in Tables 1-1 through 1-3, I expect that at this point you’re banging your head against something solid, trying to figure out why such a great variety of terms are used to represent pretty much the same things. Many a newsgroup flame war has erupted over the difference between a field and a column, for example. I personally cringe now whenever a person uses the term field, but I also realize that it isn’t the worst thing if a person realizes everything about how a table should be dealt with in SQL but misuses a term.
