got a couple of 'how to' questions about a couple of oracle commands.
First one is how do u get items in a column that you have produced from a select statement to be aligned to the right.
Second, is it possible to rename an item in a report that you have produced. For example if in the table that you created the report off, there is a column called head size and the values in that column are either S,M,L. but in the report u want those values to appear as Small, Medium,Large.

(2) DECODE funtion provides IF.... THEN.....ELSE implementation in SELECT statement. For example
