Presumably p_date is not in the format DD-MON-YYYY.
So what is the datatype of p_date?
What value do you pass in for p_date?
What is the datatype of x_date?

thanks for the reply

The issue got cleared. As i have taken p_date data type as date which has to be varchar2.

thanks

Hi

Can we only see items that have changed +/- 20% from the prior week. From what you said it should only print differences of over 20% plus or minus, but I'm seeing some that are the same quantity as the prior week.


Attached the Package Kindly help me in doing these changes

please give me some ideas

Thanks
Aiyaz
