Thanks again for your reply, Daniel.

The business case is we are maintaining a database which we are mirroring from another database. Occasionally, we are required to do a clean wipe and a recreation of all database objects and re-mirror all the info. Moreover, the systems are different and unfortunately, we depend on the ODBC to handle the process between the systems.

My question actually was: is there a clever way (Oracle development tools, etc) or existing script (awk,sed, etc) to convert the sql statements into stored procedures so I don't have to manually do so. There is quite a large number of statements in each sql script and there are altogether many scripts to convert. Thank you very much for your help. Received on Tue Mar 06 2007 - 16:22:05 CST
