Why an inner query, why not use all_objects directly?

        select my,calculations,including,rownum from all_objects ;

ALSO, I don't know how many rows are needed, be sure to count all_objects in the target database because there are not always as many as you need for long periods (yep, I have had that happen, though only on a development system).

Another technique could be to use a pipelined function (never done that myself). Received on Mon Apr 14 2008 - 19:04:02 CDT
