What is oracle correlated sub-queries? Explain with an example.
A query which uses values from the outer query is called as a correlated sub query. The subquery is executed once and uses the results for all the evaluations in the outer query.Example:
Here, the sub query references the employee_id in outer query. The value of the employee_id changes by row of the outer query, so the database must rerun the subquery for each row comparison. The outer query knows nothing about the inner query except its results.
select employee_id, appraisal_id, appraisal_amount From employee
appraisal_amount < (select max(appraisal_amount)
from employee e
where employee_id = e. employee_id);
