Hi Mkline, if what you want is to ooooptimize the process I suggest you the following
1. I think you should try to do one in one select this is insert into xxx select from xxxx, you can use case to do some changes.
2. You should use append hint insert /*+ append */ into, if possible 3. If possible do a
ALTER TABLE ADM.ANF_RATIOS_ME NOLOGGING;, and a full backup after the insert

4. if you can't use an append hint, you could try to commit every 1,000,000 records.
5. the indexes of your table, should be in other tablespaces in other physical disk.

Here is the text from my paper, I hope this be useful. 0) Always if possible try to do all in one command

Insert into DESTINY select * from SOURCE, you can use CASE to modify data in the same source select.

  1. To execute several inserts, deletes or updates you can disable the logging, this means you will have to do a full back up after that, because it eliminates redo generation, needed for backups in archivelog mode.

You can do directly in the table

ALTER TABLE ADM.ANF_RATIOS_ME NOLOGGING; 2) , remember indexes will save log information.

, this bypasses undo generation, your table will have to be commit, before issuing this command and after issuing if you want to access it again.

This is completely safe.

3) Analyze the use of import or load utilities to load that table or data, usually is the fastest.

4) When you have to insert (if not exists) and update if it exists you can use MERGE command

5) If you are using loops, to insert data, use bulk collect.

6) If you are not using APPEND hint and if is possible in the logic of your program, you can do frequently commits, to avoid undo size, growing too much.
