hi

i have one table with more than 10000 rows where in one of the
column is date. I just select no of rows by giving one specific
date. It fetches approximately 8500 rows.

I just want to push these 8500 rows to separate ascii file
under the name given by me. Like spool file... Immediately
i want to delete these rows from the table.

Subsequently whenever i want to retrive the data to my table
i shall be able to give the filename with location. MY table
should populate these data .

This job frequently executable on daily basis.

how can i achieve it..

For those who know dbase.. the following syntax does it
copy to xx.txt sdf
appe from xx

I want to achieve it through pl/sql.. when i try to
use spool command in pl/sql my system behaves crazily...
can any one offer some sort of solution..

yours
dr.s.raghunathan...

post script : My office premises intranet permits only
orafaq.com site. Even if any one suggests any other link,
our system prevents accessing. Hence i have to note down
the link and i can get clarrified only at my residence..

In home, i am a very obedient husband and getting time to
access the site is very cumbersome task and long plan
required.. If possible straight solution is preferred..

yours

Since you are using APEX, in the Utilities there is a very simple to follow menu-driven load/upload option. It allows you to specify which table, which columns, a query to determine which rows, and other options. However, this seems like an odd requirement to repeatedly remove data to a text file, delete it, then put it back.

agreed...

i also achieved through utility menu option.

I want to achieve through pl/sql through apex page.

Reason for this facility is very peculiar..

I am using free version of apex which has got 4 GB database
limitation. database resources swallow 19% at the time of
installation. I am unable to measure my data storage whether
it exceeds 4 gb or when it can exceed?

since it is a single user and rare data manipulation or
extracts on old data, i am afraid to delete the stored data.
Hence i want to store it through ascii file.

My subordinate who is using no prevliges to access database
directly. he can use the database only through apex pages
he has no control over command other than clicking buttons

otherwise, he has no accesss over application builder,
sql workshop or or any utilities

hope you shall understand my requirement...

Through apex page i want to measure the size of my database?

thanks in advance

yours
dr.s.raghunathan

Tom Kyte has a script (free.sql) that shows the allocated size of the database, how much is used, and how much is free, by tablespace, with totals. The script uses some SQL*Plus commands for formatting. I made some modifications so that it will run on apex, which does not recognize SQL*Plus commands and saved it as free_apex.sql. I have provided both scripts, with links to the original source, and demos below.

The free_apex demo lots its formatting, even with the code tags, so here is a better view.

For some reason, I can't seem to connect to Tom Kyte's site right now. When you are home search http://asktom.oracle.com for dump_csv and load_data. Dump_csv is a pl/sql function that outputs the result of any query to a text file and load_data is a pl/sql function that loads the data from a text file to a database table.

fantastic solution offered by barbara..

the only problem, with that is

while compiling the function of dump_csv, my Oracle XE Apex 3.0
version shows the error on using the utl_file.file_type

please help me once again to solve this sitution

yours

can you show us the error message
as it occurs at the first occurance of utl_file within dump_csv
you probably don't have the rights to execute utl_file

try describe utl_file in sql*plus
if it fails have someone with dba privileges do the following :
grant execute on utl_file to <your_scheme>
