hi.. i am newbie for oracle. I have an easy question.

I will create a dynamic sql.
Such as:

vName:='MYDIR';
path:='C:\ORACLE\';

sqlStr:='CREATE OR REPLACE DIRECTORY ' ||vName|| ' AS ' ||path||;

so the output of string must same :

CREATE OR REPLACE DIRECTORY MYDIR AS 'C:\ORACLE\';

the ' character must placed in string. How can i do this? With q'?

then, i must run this sql string. But how?
thanx

When are you in doubt, you can often clear it by reading the documentation, found eg. online on http://tahiti.oracle.com.

SQL Reference
Chapter 2 Basic Elements of Oracle SQL
Literals
Text Literals

You can use q' to specify alternative quoting delimiter, however I still prefer doubling '.
