v_col_value:='c_temp_rec' || '.' || v_col_name;

In the above statement c_temp_rec is a cursor.
say for eg, if v_col_name=last_name, then
v_col_value:=c_temp_rec.last_name;

In the above statement, v_col_value has the literal 'c_temp_rec.last_name'assigned to it, but I would like it to assign
the actual value contained in 'c_temp_rec.last_name'.
Is there a way to do it? It is necessary for me to use the v_col_name instead of directly using the string 'last_name' in the above assignment. It will be great if somebody can help. Thanks

Hallo Meera,

By my knowlegde this is not possible.
A way to do something like that is with Dynamic Sql.

Greetings,

Thierry.
