How do I create query in Oracle that works in SQL Server
Posted on 2013-02-07
When working in SQL server I quite often write something along the lines of
SELECT LastName, * FROM Table...
This helps when I am doing some initial investigation and the 'LastName' field is of particular interest to me, but I also want to see the rest of the record. It stops me from having to scroll through the rest of the record to see 'LastName'.
Now I'm working on Oracle, and that syntax returns an error of "Missing Expression".
What is the correct syntax to accomplish this in Oracle ?
