The PRESENTNNV function can be used only in the model_clause of the SELECT statement and then only on the right-hand side of a model rule. It returns expr1 when cell_reference exists prior to the execution of the model_clause and is not null when PRESENTNNV is evaluated. Otherwise it returns expr2. This function differs from NVL2 in that NVL2 evaluates the data at the time it is executed, rather than evaluating the data as it was prior to the execution of the model_clause.

If the row exists and the sales value is null, then the sales value is set to 10. If the row does not exist, then the row is created with the sales value set to 10.
