Hello,

I am newb to Oracle PL/SQL and I have got this problem.

CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE test
IS
  CURSOR cusers IS SELECT user_name, user_date FROM users;
  uname users.user_name%TYPE;
  udate users.user_date%TYPE;
BEGIN
  OPEN cusers;
  LOOP
     FETCH cusers INTO uname, udate;
     EXIT WHEN cusers%NOTFOUND;
     DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE('name: ' || uname || ' date: ' || udate);
  END LOOP;
  CLOSE cusers;
END;


When I try to execute this procedure I get following error:
ORA-00900: invalid SQL statement


Compilation of procedure is successful.

SQL code for creating the USERS table is here:

CREATE TABLE  "USERS" 
   (	"USER_ID" NUMBER(10,0) NOT NULL ENABLE, 
	"USER_NAME" VARCHAR2(50) NOT NULL ENABLE, 
	"USER_EMAIL" VARCHAR2(50) NOT NULL ENABLE, 
	"USER_PASS" VARCHAR2(50) NOT NULL ENABLE, 
	"USER_DATE" DATE NOT NULL ENABLE, 
	 CONSTRAINT "USERS_PK" PRIMARY KEY ("USER_ID") ENABLE
   )



Any ideas?

Jake

Did not get any error.
Could you use SQL*Plus and copy and paste your session like that:
SQL> CREATE TABLE  "USERS" 
  2     ( "USER_ID" NUMBER(10,0) NOT NULL ENABLE, 
  3   "USER_NAME" VARCHAR2(50) NOT NULL ENABLE, 
  4   "USER_EMAIL" VARCHAR2(50) NOT NULL ENABLE, 
  5   "USER_PASS" VARCHAR2(50) NOT NULL ENABLE, 
  6   "USER_DATE" DATE NOT NULL ENABLE, 
  7    CONSTRAINT "USERS_PK" PRIMARY KEY ("USER_ID") ENABLE
  8     )
  9  
SQL> 
SQL> /

Table created.

SQL> CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE test
  2  IS
  3    CURSOR cusers IS SELECT user_name, user_date FROM users;
  4    uname users.user_name%TYPE;
  5    udate users.user_date%TYPE;
  6  BEGIN
  7    OPEN cusers;
  8    LOOP
  9       FETCH cusers INTO uname, udate;
 10       EXIT WHEN cusers%NOTFOUND;
 11       DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE('name: ' || uname || ' date: ' || udate);
 12    END LOOP;
 13    CLOSE cusers;
 14  END;
 15  
 16  /

Procedure created.

SQL> exec test;

PL/SQL procedure successfully completed.

Also always post your Oracle version, with 4 decimals.

Regards
Michel

Dear Michel,

thank you for testing my procedure.

I have just tried to execute it from command line and it worked. But it still does not work if I try to execute it from the "Web Browser Database Manager". I tried it in FF, Opera and in IE8 with the same results... Have you experienced the same problem or is it just me?

The database package version is 10.2.0.1.

Thanks,
Jake

I don't know "Web Browser Database Manager", I only use SQL*Plus.
