I have records in the table xyz
col1   col2   col3
A	-12   45
B       -65   10
A       70    -53

I am grouping a record based out of col1 and sum(col2) & sum(col3)

and based out of the result I want to create another 2 rows in the table so that value of sum(col3) goes absolutly equal to sum(col2)
so that at any stage the value at group by at col1 should always be zero.

similar to
col1   col2   col3
A	-12   45
B       -65   10
A       70    -53
A       -58   8
B       65    -10

now i am trying to creata a similar line by procedure,(line 4& 5) , is there any way to use Decode value to repalce the value agasist the column.

I'm afraid I'm not much help; I can't think of a rational way to do it with DECODE().
insert into xyz
select col1, -sum(col2), -sum(col3)
from xyz
group by col1
having sum(col2) <> 0
or sum(col3) <> 0
