Rather than a single attribute in the employees table, this system allows us to remember the previous rates that an employee was paid before any raises were given. If we wanted to recalculate the cost of a project from some time ago, we would want to use the rates of pay in effect at the time and not the present ones. CREATE TABLE employee_rates ( employee_id INTEGER NOT NULL, rate DECIMAL(5,2), start_date INTEGER NOT NULL, end_date INTEGER ); Typeless Data Types The way in which SQLite stores data is built upon the realization that strong typing of data, as found in virtually every RDBMS on the market, is actually not a useful thing.

To specify that you want a floating-point result, one of the arguments must be a float itself. 33333333333333 The modulo operator is also supported, using the percent symbol, as in many other languages: sqlite> SELECT 100 % 30; 100 % 30 ---------10 You can apply such operators to a selected column in the SELECT statement.
