Re: Best way to execute a function

Yes that's the way to do it.  Only one small change -- have the function
output be assigned directly to a bind variable.

 Well, a function is supposed to return a value, so you would have to:

Declare

Variable <type>;

Begin

Variable := function(a,b,…);

End;



I would wrap it in a package for security.

Sandy,

What's wrong with putting the function in a PL/SQL block?   If the
function is closely associated with a query I could see it being called as
part of that query.

A developer just asked me the best way to execute a function.  I can't say
that I've ever seen it outside of a procedure and haven't found any
information on another way to do it during my search this morning.  He said
he tried using a call statement, but couldn't get it to return any results.
He is currently using the following statement:



select pwrfunc.oragen@customersite(RPAD
<pwrfunc.oragen@customersite%28RPAD>(?, 25)||RPAD(?, 25)||RPAD(?, 30)||
RPAD(?, 60)) from dual;



Any suggestions?



Sandy
