Hello,

I have a procedure to which, I pass the actual SQL statement string as IN parameter.

I need to execute this in the query. But don't know how.

Eg.

CREATE OR REPLACE MYProc(MySelectStatement IN varchar2(500) AS

BEGIN

EXEC SQL EXECUTE IMMEDIATE &MySelectStatement; -- OR SOMETHING LIKE THIS. I am getting errors no matter what I try to do.

END;

Please suggest!
Thanks in advance,
PB

Thanks Todd!

I tried this and it compiled but when I try to test it :

package_name.procedure_name('Select * from MyTable');

I get ORA-01036 error. How do you do this?

Also, if I have single quotes in the select statement, how to handle that?

Thanks in advance.
PB

As for the single quotes in the statement, it shouldn't be an issue within the procedure since you are using a variable.

However, to call the procedure with the single quotes within the string you need to replace the quotes with two single quotes:

package_name.procedure_name('Select * from MyTable Where MyVarcharColumn = ''ABC''');
