    Hi,
    I got a object and table.
    like

    Object: emp_address(state varchar2(10), zip number(6));

    Table: emp (emp_name varchar2(30) PK,
    address emp_address);

    How can i insert two or more address for the same emp_name?

    Thanks.

    Hello,

    Go for varray or nested table type of that object type. This will allow you to insert more than one address for the same emp_name

    For Example:
    create type emp_address as object
    (state varchar2(10), zip number(6));

    create type emp_address_vrr as varray(4) of emp_address ;

    create type emp_address_nest is table of emp_address ;

    create table emp (emp_name varchar2(30),
    address1 emp_address_vrr ,
    address2 emp_address_nest )
    NESTED TABLE address2 STORE AS address;

    If you know maximum how many address u can insert for one emp_name then go for varray, but if you don't know the number then go for nested table.
