The table games shows the year and the city hosting the Olympic Games.

yrcity
2000Sydney

schema:scott
 DROP TABLE games
 CREATE TABLE games(
  yr INTEGER PRIMARY KEY,
  city VARCHAR(20));
INSERT INTO games VALUES (2000,'Sydney');
INSERT INTO games VALUES (2004,'Athens');
INSERT INTO games VALUES (2008,'Beijing');
INSERT INTO games VALUES (2012,'London');

The SELECT statement returns results from a table. With a WHERE clause only some rows are returned. This example shows the year that Athens hosted the Olympic games.

SELECT yr, city 
FROM scott.games
WHERE yr = 2004
SELECT yr, city 
FROM games
WHERE yr = 2004
