Hi All,
I have the following issue.

I have an Item with no 123445.

This item has a commodity pack size of 1 unit and a commodity pack size of 10 units but the user cannot see which is which.
so the user cannot distinguish between the single commodity pack size and a multipack commodity pack size.

I need to write a query for this.
can you please give me idea to distinguish these items.

Thank you,

What is Item?
From which table?
What are the other columns?
Does the user run from SQL*Plus or Oracle Forms or what else?

There is not one useful piece of information in this post. If you didn't mentioned the word "query" I wouldn't even know this has anything to do with a database.

Hi All,
I have the table like as follows.


Item     Unit    material

12345     1       systems
12345     6       systems
2342      1       book
3245      1       cells
3245      8       cells
3289      1       shirt
3200      1       pants
3200      9       pants

from the above table for Eg. Item No 12345.

This item has a commodity pack size of 1 unit and a commodity pack size of 6 units but the user cannot see which is which.
so the user cannot distinguish between the single commodity pack size and a multipack commodity pack size.
Now the requirement is :::::
So need to update it as

if it has one unit then : systems_1
If it has multiple units Then : systems_6 [for item 12345]
Like this I need to update all the items.

Please write a query for this..
Please let me know if u need more Info...
Thank you.

Is not your result the concatenation of "material" and "unit"?

Show us how did you try .

Clue : You need to update the material field itself
No need to query a new field like "Orig_material".

Do you think you are unable to give the answer?
Don't you think if you didn't give it there is a reason?
Think!

But you don't help anyone giving obvious solution.
He must learn to find it by himself.
You improve yourself by finding the solution, very good!
Don't you think he should have the same chance?
