DB2 Alias

This chapter describes the creation of alias and retrieving data using alias of database objects.

Introduction

Alias is an alternative name for database objects. It can be used to reference the database object. You can say, it is a nick name for database objects. Alias are defined for the objects to make their name short, thereby reducing the query size and increasing readability of the query.

Creating database object aliases

You can create database object alias as shown below:

Syntax:

db2 create alias<alias_name>for<table_name>    

Example: Creating alias name for table 窶徘rofessional.customer窶 table

db2 create alias pro_cust for professional.customer    

If you pass 窶彜ELECT * FROM PRO_CUST窶 or 窶彜ELECT * FROM PROFESSIONAL.CUSTOMER窶 the database server will show the same result.

Syntax: [To retrieve values from a table directly with schema name]

db2 select*from<schema_name>.<table_name>    

Example: [To retrieve values from table customer]

db2 select*from professional.customer    

Output:

CUSTID  FULLNAME    PHONE
----------------   ------------ 
100     ravi        9898989 
101     krathi      87996659 
102     gopal       768678687 
  
  3 record(s) selected.    

Retrieving values using alias name of the table

You can retrieve values from database using alias name as shown below:

Syntax: [To retrieve values from table by calling alias name of the table]

db2 select*from<alias_name>    

Example: [To retrieve values from table customer using alias name]

db2 select*from pro_cust

Output:

CUSTID  FULLNAME    PHONE
----------------   ------------ 
100     ravi        9898989 
101     krathi      87996659 
102     gopal       768678687

Excellent blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There
are so many options out there that I'm completely overwhelmed ..
Any tips? Thank you!
