You have still not formatted the post. This is what @Michael has requested you to do it.

7 dbms_output.put_line(var.dob || ' ' );
8 end loop;
9* end;

It's nice to see your pl/sql code but you have not posted the output of the pl/sql block.

Anyways, coming back to your question how do you expect the output if you have more than two group of dates. Do you want the dob to appear as a column value or appear as the column heading. Either way it looks to me the most infamous question pivot. Search in this forum, asktom.oracle.com, any other oracle forums for the keywords pivot, rows to columns, stragg you will be bombarded with answers.

Hope that helps.

Raj

Please post with proper formatting.

For this no need of PLSQL block,
You can do it with a SQL query,

SELECT  	   SUM(DECODE(DOB,'21-JAN-07',PRODU)) "21-JAN-07",
			   SUM(DECODE(DOB,'12-MAR-08',PRODU)) "12-MAR-08"
FROM TEST2

Don't put solution only hint or clue as requested in OraFAQ Forum Guide, "Responding to Posts" section:
Quote:
When responding to questions, if it is obviously a student with a homework assignment or someone else just learning, especially in the homework and newbies forums, it is usual to provide hints or clues, perhaps links to relevant portions of the documentation, or a similar example, to point them in the right direction so that they will research and experiment on their own and learn, and not provide complete solutions to problems. In cases where someone has a real-life complex work problem, or at least it may seem complex to them, it may be best to provide a complete demo and explanation.

Hi All,

I got the answer for my question(For Bank Data base).The query is

SQL> select * from test3;

ACNO ODATE BNAME
---------- --------- ----------
1023 01-JAN-07 Branch 1
2303 01-JAN-07 Branch 2
12494 01-FEB-07 Branch 1
2359 01-FEB-07 Branch 2

SQL> SELECT BNAME "BRANCH NAME",
2 MAX(case when ODATE = '01-JAN-07' then ACNO end ) "01-JAN-07",
3 MAX(case when ODATE = '01-FEB-07' then ACNO end ) "01-FEB-07"
4 from test3
5 group by BNAME
6 /

BRANCH NAM 01-JAN-07 01-FEB-07
---------- ---------- ----------
Branch 2 2303 2359
Branch 1 1023 12494

But any one can pls let me know how can i avoid the hard coding
since if ther r thousand distinct dates the above solution will be poor.
