SQL expressions specify a value, allowing you to perform arithmetic and logical operations and to generate new values or Boolean results from literals and stored values. An expression can consist of any of the following things:

  • Column name
  • Literal (sometimes referred to as a constant)
  • Function
  • USING variable
  • Parameter
  • Parameter marker (question mark (?) placeholder)
  • Combination of column names, literals, and functions connected by operators
