I've come across this acronym in a few places recently, one being a SQL Server DBA job description. Does anybody know what it stands for, in database related terms?

I've heard of CRUD, which is Create Read Update Delete, but the only thing i can find related to SCUD references whether you can recover your data from a full disaster:

Never heard that one, but might be: Select Create Update Delete. These kids today and their modern slang.



And then again, I might be wrong ...

I occasionally refer to CUD, Create, Update, Delete, when discussing the parts of ORM tools that I (sometimes) don't have problems with. Nothing in Bingle either. I think you may have misheard, or it's a local thing to particular company.

Thanks for the feedback.

The job ad definitely says SCUD. Here is the particular qualification statement ...

"Must have minimum eight years' experience with SQL, coding queries, SCUD, stored procedures and data import/export."

I suspect the previous suggestion of Select, Create, Update and Delete is correct. If I get an interview, I'll be sure to respectfully ask about it.

Most likely the recruiter couldn't their own notes when getting the job description from their client. I suspect it probably is CRUD. Can't really expect recruiter to know all the lingo we throw around routinely.

To be serious, it is likely as others have said: Select Create Update Delete.
