RE: retry on PL.SQL question

Thank you very much.

     One more thing, I noticed in my procedure that there are multiple
begin statements.  What does the begin statement signify?

     Thanks, John

John,

The "AS" clause stakes the beginning of the procedure code.

 

I don't know this specific syntax, but it looks like a bunch of
variables are then defined (they start with "l_" in your example,  and
then after that you would continue to write the rest of the procedure
code.

 

HTH.

Rodney

Hello all,

     The following was taken from the beginning of a procedure.  It
defines the input and out parameters of the procedure.  My question has
to do with the "as" clause.  I am assuming that the entries following
the "as" statement are redefining the data or parameter out item
"o_v_err_msg".  Can someone let me know if this assumption is correct or
not?  If it isn't redefining the o_v_err_msg data element, what is it
doing?

 

 

 

(i_dt_report_date IN IT_TBL_T_CASH_TXNS.DATE_DRC%TYPE,

 i_n_sysyear IN NUMBER,

 o_n_return_value OUT NUMBER,

 o_n_err_num OUT NUMBER,

 o_v_err_msg OUT VARCHAR2)

 

AS

 

 

l_transaction_no          IT_TBL_T_CASH_TXNS.TRANSACTION_NO%TYPE;

l_acct_no                       IT_TBL_T_CASH_TXNS.ACCT_NO%TYPE;

l_n_err_num Number;

l_v_err_msg                     Varchar2(255);

 

     Thanks for any help you can give me.  I wasn't able to find the
"as" cause in the various Oracle help pages I found on Google.

     John
