In the following SELECT statement, a NAMED phrase associates an arithmetic expression with the name “Projection” so that the calculated column can be more easily referenced in the WHERE clause and the heading (TITLE) in the report is more meaningful.

SELECT Name, ((Salary + (YrsExp * 200))/12) (NAMED Projection)
FROM Employee
WHERE DeptNo = 600 AND Projection < 2500;

The ANSI syntax for this example is the same as used for Example 2 for the AS.
