This question is different but similar to this request looking for SQL-86.

SQL 1989 is almost 30 years old. Is this spec freely available anywhere. The standard does not have a Wikipage or the like?

The spec goes by

  • ANSI X3.135-1989 Database Language - SQL With Integrity Enhancements
  • ISO 9075-1989
  • SQL-1989

The need for it came up while researching the question, Does the SQL-1992 standard restrict naming identifiers to 18 characters?


This what you are looking for?

Information Systems - Database Language - SQL (includes ANSI X3.168-1989) (formerly ANSI X3.135-1992 (R1998)) Defines the data structures and basic operations on SQL-data. Provides functional capabilities for creating, accessing, maintaining, controlling, and protecting SQL-data.
