This is not a forum to post your question.
It is just to test how to post.
If this is what you wanted to do, you failed as it is not formatted.
Please read OraFAQ Forum Guide, especially "How to format your post?" section.
Make sure that lines of code do not exceed 80 characters when you format.
Indent the code (See SQL Formatter) and align the columns in result.
Use the "Preview Message" button to verify.
Also always post your Oracle version (4 decimals).

If you wanted to post a real question, you are in the wrong forum, you have to post in SQL & PL/SQL one but before read the above links and learn how to post.

Regards
Michel

What "help" are you talking about? Michel's reply was more a "tip" because - if you REALLY have a problem (and it seems you do), it has remained unsolved.

Would you like your question to be moved into a more appropriate forum (SQL & PL/SQL one, for example)?
