I don't think so...the columns of update_test are visible to the
scalar subquery...that way you can use fields from 'a' to filter the
select a, (select y from supdate_test where x = a) from update_test;
Yes this is fine, but in "select columnname from tablename" using column
references of the other involved table is what I am objecting to.
