Hi guys,

I would need some help.

In fact I am trying to learn PL/SQL and I know almost anything about it.

I am working on Oracle Financial 11i at the moment as an end user but I would like to improve my knowledge in this area.

I do not know where to start. Could you give me some tips, where to start and how. From where I can get some free training and which software I could use to do some exercices (visual basic for exemple?).

Thanks for your help


Francois

download and install Oracle Express Edition (XE). It is a free and small database-version that requires no knowledge to install it.
With it, you get sqlplus.exe, the command-line tool to fire statements against the database.
With these two you can practice what you read in the manuals Michel pointed you to.
Another good start might be the books by Steve Feuerstein (not free) (although, I am not sure if he has written newbie-books).

I guess what you mean is that they take you to an OTN login page.
Registration is free, so just create an account.
