Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-2261) Questionable use of word "statement" in VALUES expression of Derby Reference Manual should be changed to "clause"
Date Thu, 15 Mar 2007 16:00:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-2261?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12481197

Tomohito Nakayama commented on DERBY-2261:

I think examples in VALUES expression page shows that we can call it statement .....
-- 3 rows of 1 column
VALUES (1),(2),(3)
-- 3 rows of 1 column
VALUES 1, 2, 3 
-- 1 row of 3 columns
VALUES (1, 2, 3)
-- using a built-in function
-- getting the value of an arbitrary expression
VALUES (3*29, 26.0E0/3)
-- getting a value returned by a built-in function
values char(1)

Now I understood that there exists both of VALUES expression and VALUES statement.

Then I think wording itself is not problem.
// Sorry that my opinion is different from first one ....

However, I think information for VALUES statement  is placed too suddenly in context of VALUES
expression page. 
Because VALUES statement is not so familiar with many reader, I think some of care is needed.
