I will admit to not be completely sure the specifics of what you are trying to do (due in part to language and typo issues), but if you are going to re-generate code: pl/sql and sql to process data based on changes/parameters the customer changes then since you mentioned dbms_output perhaps utl_file is of interest.

See the Oracle Supplied packages manual. Basically utl_file will read and write files on the database server. If you are trying to generate scripts that are submitted from outside the database then this may be an option.

On the other hand if you need to generate and immediately execute your code them dbms_sql which I believe offers more flexibility than execute immediate might be of interest. Also if the generated code can be created in the form of stored procedures or packages then you could use either execute immediate or dbms_job to execute the stoed code. Potentailly generating the code as stored procedures would allow you to generate once and execute many.

Being that you are dealing with a hierarchy I take it you are familar with the Oracle connect by clause.
