PL/SQL :: How To Get Substring From A Column With Many Carriage Returns

Sep 21, 2012

I've got this situation.

In a not normalized table loaded with data from an excel file, I have a column containing a long string with many carriage returns so that after each of them it begins a new string I have to manipulate. I mean, in the column PERSON I've got something like this:

Software developer

Of course I have to write a Pl/Sql procedure extracting each string and I know that each string ends with a carriage return chr(13)||chr(10)

I think I should use the INSTR built-in function but I it'd be useful whether some of you had something ready.

SQL & PL/SQL :: Carriage Return Line Feed Multiple Times In Same CLOB

Jan 31, 2012

I'm looking for a way to make CRLFs show in a CLOB.I'm feeding the insert statement with a concatinated string like this:

insert into table(Data) values (MyConc)

(MyConc is a string put togheter by another application)

Because of this I can't use the "|| chr(13) || chr(10) ||" because I only have that one concatinated string.Is there a character I can set in my string that automatically translates to a CRLF?

My CLOB-data should look something like this:


And in this case the "MyConc" would look like this "1;blue;Woodstock;;[X]34;giant;squid;attack;[X]5;blue;squid;;[X]

where [X]=the character I need for CRLF =)

SQL & PL/SQL :: Update Returns More Than One Row?

Oct 26, 2010

I have to update a table by getting values from two other tables. While doing that the inner query returns more than one value. I am not sure how to implement the logic without returning more than one row in sub query.

My query:
update buf_office_str o
set o.manager_ident =
(select sp.ident
from se2_r_src_sourceperson sp ,
(select distinct director_name, team_name from buf_sales_dump )t
where SP.SRCNAME = upper(substr(t.director_name,instr(t.director_name,' ')+1,length(t.director_name))||', '||substr(t.director_name,1,instr(t.director_name,' ')-1 ) )
and o.office_descr = t.team_name

Basically the query gets the manager id from sp table where sp.srcname =
The office_descr should be equal to the team_name.

This is the logic I am working towards:

For each office, i get the office_descr and get corresponding team_name. Match the team's director_name (from table t) with the and return the employee's id (sp.ident) for that office_descr. I need to update all 50 offices with corresponding managerid for that office in buf_office_str table.

Is it possible to get done in one update? Or, does this need a plsql proc to do this logic.

PL/SQL :: Single Sub Row Query Returns More Than 1 Row?

Apr 19, 2013

I am trying to update values in a table from another table and getting the error: Single Sub Row Query Returns More Than 1 Row.

I want table B's PRV_NAME updated into table A's PRV_NAME where A.PRVID = B.PRVID where B.PRV_TYPE = M'

Both tables have all unique PRVID's, however, table B has PRVID's that have the same name. So table B data can look like this:

1235 SAC MED
1236 SAC MED

So, as you can see the PRVID's are unique, but not the PRV_NAME's. Is this the reason why I get this error?

I did not build the tables and have no control over what is put in them. If this is the reason for the error, is there any way to resolve this?

For reference, here is the query.

update msb_prv_source ps
set ps.prv_name =
(select prv00.prv00_prv_name
from prv00_prv prv00
join msb_prv_source ps
on prv00.prv00_prv_id = ps.prvid
where prv00.prv00_prv_type = 'M')

SQL & PL/SQL :: How To Find Nearest Integer / Where Mod Returns 0

May 24, 2012

I want to find nearest integer value where mod returns 0 in sql statement. I've tried following but it doesn't fulfill my requirement.

My Try

SQL> select
2 ((1200*1000)+45-mod((1200*1000),45)) f1,
3 mod( ((1200*1000)+45-mod((1200*1000),45)),45 ) f2,
4 ((1200*1000)+45-mod((1200*1000),45))/1000 f3
5 from dual;

F1 F2 F3
---------- ---------- ----------
1200015 0 1200.015

In above result F3 represent the actual result, which is nearest value where mod returns the 0, but i want nearest integer value which is 1206. how it is possible. In above case consider 1200 as Kgs and 45 as Grams.

SQL & PL/SQL :: Result If A Subquery Returns No Data?

Feb 26, 2010

I have a query that can return values or not:

If it returns a value, I want to print the value returned;
If it returns no value, I would like to return a string like 'NO_DATA'.

I have already tried several things, and the last one is:
Select NVL2(dnh.DiaNoHableData, dnh.DiaNoHableData, 'NO_DATA')
From (Select Dia_No_Habil || '#' ||
Trim(Descripcion) DiaNoHableData
From Dias_no_Habiles
Where Dia_No_Habil = To_Char(To_Date('20080704', 'YYYYMMDD'), 'YYYYMMDD')) dnh;

The subquery returns no data, so the first query should print 'NO_DATA', but it returns nothing.

SQL & PL/SQL :: Change Value That Function USER Returns

Nov 25, 2011

I have an existing database with several hundred tables and triggers on the tables in the schema S1. Most of the triggers are for storing audit information USER and SYSDATE in the respective columns.

We have built procedures what will accept incoming XML parameters from a BPMS application on the intranet which will have information about which table to update, which columns to update, what values to update and what the O/S user id is. The O/S user ids are mapped to oracle user ids in a specific table. Therefore when we receive the request we can easily figure out the oracle user id. The application always connects to the database using a specified user id S2.

The trouble is, the existing tables have triggers which read :NEW.userid := USER;and whenever a DML is fired from the procedure, the function USER always returns S2, since that is the user id the BPMS application connects to and therefore the audit columns do not capture the correct information as required.

The impact of changing all the existing triggers/procedures will be a mammoth task including regression testing and will certainly not be approved by the project sponsor.

override the value that USER returns? Using session contexts, etc? If so, we can possibly set it at the point of connect and have to do nothing else.
