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.

In the code segment below (hope it appears right) I can understand the use of single quotes in the first two examples but in the third example below I had to use double quotes around the word - Today's - and I not sure I understand why?! I'm aware of the rules ...If you want a single quote to appear in the middle of a string add another single quote to it.If you want a single quote to appear at the beginning or end of a string add 2 single quotes to it.If you want a single quote to appear on its own add 3 single quotes to it.

SQL & PL/SQL :: Comparing Strings Entered In A Form?

I have to compare a string entered in a form with a series of English strings in back-end PL/SQL( using LIKE operator )

But it so happens, the string entered in the form is specific to the language used in the country. for ex. in Dutch, it is entered in Dutch language.

SQL & PL/SQL :: External Table And Blank Strings

Sep 23, 2011

I am importing some data using an external table, but the file on which the external table is built has some rows where a certain column is populated with two empty space characters.

CREATE OR REPLACE DIRECTORY xtern_data_dir AS 'C:/...';


This is an except of what's in the external text file. The full text file has been attached.

000011|0030|....|000000.000000| |000000.000000| |0002
000011|0365|....|000000.000000| |000000.000000| |0002
000011|0730|....|000000.000000| |000000.000000| |0002
blank spaces may be |
causing error----------

Here is the error message I am receiving. I believe this is caused by the blank fields in the data.

ERROR at line 1:
ORA-29913: error in executing ODCIEXTTABLEFETCH callout
ORA-30653: reject limit reached
ORA-06512: at "SYS.ORACLE_LOADER", line 52

This is difficult to work with because the external table function does not appear to be even reading the file so it's not like I can convert the data as I'm loading into the internal database table. What are some approaches I can use to get Oracle to accept these blank columns and either populate them with blank spaces or set them to null?

SQL & PL/SQL :: Divide Sting Into Small Strings

Aug 7, 2010

I have a string:

"This is just for testing 123.
This is just for testing 45654.
This is just for testing 5567876.
This is just for testing 53456547.
This is just for testing 123423.
This is just for testing 98090.
This is just for testing 099473.
This is just for testing.
This is just for testing.
This is just for testing 3.
This is just for testing 34983245983.
This is just for testing 6432."

I need to divide this sting after every 100 characters, as the length of column to insert is 100. And i do not want to modify the column as it has great impact. I need to divide the string, such that it should be less then 100 characters also the string is not cut in between.

first string: "This is just for testing 123.
This is just for testing 45654.
This is just for testing 5567876."

then 2nd string: "This is just for testing 53456547.
This is just for testing 123423.
This is just for testing 98090."

then 3rd string: "This is just for testing 099473.

This is just for testing.

SQL & PL/SQL :: Using INSTR In Where Clause To Give COMPLETE MATCH Strings?

Dec 9, 2011

We have a SSRS Front end screen which sends multi-select column values as comma separated strings to back end ( Oracle 10g) procedure .

The procedure builds the string by inserting single quotes in the following manner.

P_BU_LST is the parameter which have comma separated values

'1234,3456,4577' i.e, BU ids selected by user in front end
the procedure inserts single quotes to this paramer value

i.e., '1234','3456','4577
v_bu_lst := '''' || REPLACE(v_selbu, ',', ''',''')|| '''';

This is used the where clause of the REF CURSOR SELECT query which send the data back to SSRS


INSTR has a chance to fail in this scenario if the value send from the front end is 123456,3456,4577

here 123456 does not exist in table, but it will be true for INSTR and values 1234 from table will be send back to SSRS which is wrong. Earlier I was using a function to convert the comma separated values to multi-rows and treat it like a lookup table.

But the main table has around million records , and each row has to processed against each row of lookup table, which makes it slower. To avoid this I used INSTR which is faster but can give wrong results.

Precompilers, OCI & OCCI :: How To Pass Array Of Strings To And Return Table Set From Proc

Jan 24, 2011

I have to write a PL/SQL procedure, which is supposed to take an array of strings as input. This array will have simple strings as elements, like


Now I have a query in the procedure, which will return a row, for each of the array elements. For example:


In the place of the '?' in the above query, the array elements have to be passed. So we will get one row from the above query for each array element.

Now we either have to loop through the array elements to fetch the result set for the above query for each array element, or we can use some other method too. Our objective is to collect all the rows of the above query for each array element as a table data and this procedure has to return this table set.

what will be the best way to pass such a set of data to the proc and best way for the proc to return this result set. Like we can use arrays, table type data,ref cursors, etc.
