Python Program to Display Employee Details

The below is an example of a Python program to display employee details. In this program, it will ask the user to input employee number, then it will query the database table for that employee and will print the details. Also, a user can exit the program if he enters the 0 instead of an employee number. The database used for this example is Oracle, and the table is employees of the HR schema.

You can download the HR schema script from the following link Download HR Schema.
