Our corporate controller. A developer of ours found this function on asktom and cut and pasted it into the application. Voila...instant CPU spike on the server whenever the query is run. If more than one session runs it? Geez, alarms start firing everywhere.

In our case, it made more sense to have a procedure return a cursor to the application and then build up the string in java (which is free). Received on Tue May 18 2010 - 20:58:03 CDT
