insert into tab1 values(100,4);
insert into tab1 values(101,5);

create table tab2(stock number, slip number);
insert into tab2 values(4, 1);
insert into tab2 values(4, 5);
insert into tab2 values(4, 8);
insert into tab2 values(5, 1);
insert into tab2 values(5, 5);
insert into tab2 values(5, 6);
insert into tab2 values(5, 7);
commit;

Open in new window

                       rnk
