I deleted it by mistake, I already asked Littlefoot to provide it back... if she has a backup.
Unfortunately the site does not have a recycle bin.

oops... ./fa/7264/0/

Don`t know whether it is possible or not for little foot to replace it back as earlier ...The following will help us if she does n`t have any backup of it ...

How to format your post?

If you are providing code snippets such as SQL*Plus copy/paste, please be sure to use formatting tags:
 Enter your code here.

It makes a huge difference to the forum readers. Unreadable code makes a question harder to understand and will delay answers. A lot of people don't spend that much time on the forum and unclear posts will be skipped more often because they take a lot more time to decipher.

The difference between the code blocks below is clear:

First a block without proper tags, you'll notice that it is not that readable:

DECLARE
CURSOR yourcursor
IS
SELECT yourcolumn
, another_column
FROM yourtable
WHERE some_column BETWEEN A AND B
AND some_other > SYSDATE;
BEGIN
FOR a_record IN yourcursor
LOOP
do_something_here;
IF a_record.another_column = 1
THEN
do_extra_stuff;
ELSE
do_other_stuff;
ELSE;
END LOOP;
END;


Now, the same PL/SQL block this time with use of the code tags. It clearly delineates the code from the other text and preserves text indenting.
DECLARE
CURSOR yourcursor
IS
SELECT yourcolumn
, another_column
FROM yourtable
WHERE some_column BETWEEN A AND B
AND some_other > SYSDATE;
BEGIN
FOR a_record IN yourcursor
LOOP
do_something_here;
IF a_record.another_column = 1
THEN
do_extra_stuff;
ELSE
do_other_stuff;
ELSE;
END LOOP;
END;

You can also paste the code in your message, select it and hit this button .

What if the code is not formatted itself? Code tags will do little about that. So you first have to format the code
by hand
via an external tool (like TOAD)
via the SQL Formatter page of OraFAQ.
Make sure that lines of code do not exceed 80 characters.




I have everything in my mails ...Except images..

When asking for assistance, sometimes you post your own code. In order to make it easier to read, you should use [code] tags. It isn't difficult - take a look!



Now see the difference - code you used to post is on the left, and the same code (the one you are about to post now and in the future) is on the right side:

I always assumed Littlefoot was male, although I don't know why. I see the profile does not say which.

I assumed male. I assume everyone is male except those with obvious female non-alias names. I do not see people's avatars, as I have images blocked.

You should not have said "if someone reminds me" because I can bet you, some geek here (possibly me), will write it down somewhere to remind you in a year. I can almost guarantee someone will do it.

And even then there's no guarantees.

Very few have avatars either way, you're not missing much.

It's gone again, or the last vestige of my sanity has, one of the two.

It's alright, that last vestige is still there.
Anyone got a backup copy?

And here's a copy if it appears once more:




Please, format your code and - before submitting a message - enclose it into the [code] tags.

./fa/9318/0/

Note the difference; see how the formatted code is easier to read?

./fa/9319/0/
