How to Use NOT NULL Column Constraint Correctly

IN THIS POST, I have explained how to write NOT NULL column “constraint” correctly. Before that, a NULL value means you have not supplied any value or un-known.


NOT NULL is a column constraint. So that you can control the value writes to a column in a Table.

Best Example

Create Table Artist
(artist_id int not null,
dob date not null,
salary int);

So the artist table does not allow null values for artist_id and dob. You must enter values.

Audio Post of SQL NOT NULL

The salary column is different, where it allows null values when you do not enter any amount.

Table Data of Artist

artist_idDOBSalary
10012000-01-1910000
10022001-07-20<null>
10032003-05-15<null>

Summary

  1. NOT NULL is a column constraint
  2. Without values in the columns where NOT NULL defines, the SQL gives errors.
  3. By default, all the columns accept NULL values
