Example text

DECIMAL and NUMERIC: Real numbers, with fractional portions to the right of the decimal point. When you assign a real number domain, you must specify how many digits the number can contain (including the decimal point) and how many digits should be to the right of the decimal point (the value's precision). XX might have a domain of DECIMAL (6,2). DATE: A date. TIME: A time. DATETIME: The combination of a date and a time. BOOLEAN: A logical value (either true or false). Many of today's DBMSs also support a data type known as a BLOB (binary large object), which can store anything binary, such as a graphic.

Since we never do BASIC DATA RELATIONSHIPS 23 arithmetic with zip codes, nothing is lost by using character rather than numeric storage. By the same token, it is important to choose domains of DATE and TIME for chronological data. As an example, consider what would happen if the dates 01/12/2000 and 08/12/1999 were stored as characters. If you ask the DBMS to choose which date comes first, the DBMS will compare the character strings in alphabetical order, and respond that 01/12/2000 comes first, because 01 alphabetically precedes 08.

For example, assume that Lasers Only decides to start dealing with a new distributor of laser discs. At first, the c o m p a n y orders only one specialty title from the new distributor. If we peered inside the database, we w o u l d see that the instance of the distributor entity was related to just the one merchandise item instance. This w o u l d then appear to be a one-to-one relationship. However, over time Lasers Only may choose to order more titles from the new distributor, which w o u l d violate the rule that the distributor must be related to no more than one merchandise item.
