Hi,

Empno has number data type, not null. MRG_NAME has number data type.

I changed this:

ALTER TABLE EMP RENAME COLUMN MGR TO MGR_NAME;

SELECT empno, ename, hiredate, mgr_name(empno)
FROM emp;

I want MGR_Name to display with empno.

Return, I got "MGR_NAME" invalid identifier.

Any advice is appreciated?

Insert row into emp with deptno null.

Foreign key constraint of deptno in emp.

Best to re-create table emp2 and emp2.self_key. Delete constraint emp_foreign_key line.

Also, you can disable the column constraint.

Use self-join for 2 diff. table aliases, treat EMP like 2 separate tables.
