Note the General Instructions for formulating SQL statements.

You can use the system table CONSTRAINTS to determine the following database information, among other things:

  • All conditions on the columns of the tables of the HOTEL schema that represent explicit value checks

    SELECT tablename, constraintname, definition


    WHERE schemaname = 'HOTEL'

  • All conditions on the columns of the table CUSTOMER that represent explicit value checks

    SELECT tablename, constraintname


    WHERE tablename = 'CUSTOMER'

Constraints (integrity conditions) that relate to NOT NULL definitions, primary keys, UNIQUE definitions or referential constrains are not found with this SELECT statement.
