Hi Experts,

CREATE TABLE JOB_HISTORY

START_DATE DATE CONSTRAINTS START_DATE_NN NOT NULL,
END_DATE DATE CONSTRAINTS END_DATE_NN NOT NULL,
JOB_ID VARCHAR2(10),
CONSTRAINTS JOB_ID_FK FOREIGN KEY (JOB_ID) REFERENCE JOBS(JOB_ID),
DEPARTMENT_ID NUMBER(4),
CONSTRAINTS DEP_ID_FK FOREGIN KEY (DEPARTMENT_ID) REFERENCE DEPARTMENT(DEPARTMENT_ID));

INSERT INTO JOB_HISTORY VALUES(102, '13-JAN-93', '24-JUL-98', 'IT_PROG', 60);

is this t-sql?
Number is not a datatype in T-sql
also PRIMARY KEY should be NOT NULL

Also
1) VARCHAR2 is NOT a datatype in MSSQL..
2) put REFERENCES instead of REFERENCE
3) put CONSTRAINT instead of CONSTRAINTS
4) correct the spelling of FOREIGN

CREATE TABLE JOB_HISTORYs
(EMPLOYEE_ID int CONSTRAINT EMP_ID_PK PRIMARY KEY,
START_DATE DATE CONSTRAINT START_DATE_NN NOT NULL,
END_DATE DATE CONSTRAINT END_DATE_NN NOT NULL,
JOB_ID VARCHAR(10),
CONSTRAINT JOB_ID_FK FOREIGN KEY (JOB_ID) REFERENCES JOBS(JOB_ID),
DEPARTMENT_ID int,
CONSTRAINT DEP_ID_FK FOREIGN KEY (DEPARTMENT_ID) REFERENCES DEPARTMENTS(DEPARTMENT_ID));

What it may be.... those REFERENCES, CONSTRAINT, FOREIGN are typos of OP
