Oracle UPPER Function

1 ratings | 125 views
https://www.databasestar.com/oracle-upper-lower/ The Oracle UPPER function is used to convert a string to an uppercase value. It capitalises a string value. It’s useful for comparing text or string values that may have mixed case, such as user input or data from different tables. The opposite of the UPPER function is the LOWER function (which converts to lower case). The syntax of UPPER is: UPPER(input_string) The input_string is the string value to convert to an upper case value. It can be any of CHAR, VARCHAR2, NCHAR, NVARCHAR2, CLOB, or NCLOB. The return type is the same as the input type. You can use the UPPER function in a WHERE clause. However, unless you have a function-based index on the column, any indexes won’t be used. For example, if you have an index on first_name, a query that uses “WHERE UPPER(first_name)” won’t use this index. You’ll have to create an index on the UPPER(first_name) for this to be used. It’s not required, but it’s just something to keep in mind.
