Hi,

create table emp1(nm varchar2(12), salary number)

declare
bon number;
ename varchar2(12);
begin
select salary*0.1 into bon
from emp1
where nm=&ename;
dbms_output.put_line(bon);
end;


It's giving error in TOAD
Though it's simple i'm unable to find why the error

Fix the error and you will no more have one.
Or better, don't use TOAD.

Regards
Michel

Yes

I got the output.
I tried the where clause like this:
where nm='&ename';


Thank you very much

Hi,

You do not need to use ';' in TOAD to terminate the statement.

Cheers,
Paul

Hi jyothsna1612

you can try this in Toad.

EXAMPLE :

create table autoqa.emp1(nm varchar2(12), salary number);

Table Created.

insert into autoqa.emp1 values('TEST',100);

1 row Created.


declare
bon number;
ename varchar2(12);
begin
select salary*0.1 into bon
from emp1
where nm=&ename;
dbms_output.put_line(bon);
end;
/
Enter value for ename: 'TEST'
old 7: where nm=&ename;
new 7: where nm='TEST';
10
PL/SQL procedure successfully completed.

-mad_bu.
