Hi Can I ask help on getting the following script modified by using the break on and compute commands please?.(or any other method if that works..)
I tried BRK and COMPUTE commands myself after reading the documentation but its not working
(You can see how I used these in my script below)

The output of my script is correct but What I want is the information to be displayed on a different way:
Original script for the report:
set serveroutput on size 1000000
set pages 10000
set lines 1000
set arraysize 1
set trimspool on
set heading off
 
BREAK ON TH.THORFARE_NAME
COMPUTE COUNT OF b.sequence_no on TH.THORFARE_NAME
 
spool c:\sqls\CLAR_OFFICE.csv
 
Prompt  CLAR information in sequence for this office
 
select 	('"Region","Post Town","Delivery Office","Route Name","Thoroughfare","Locality","SEQUENCE"') from dual;
select	'"'||r.name			||'"'||','||	
	'"'||p.name			||'"'||','||
	'"'||do.name			||'"'||','||
	'"'||ro.name			||'"'||','||
	'"'||decode(th.thorfare_name,'OSIUNKNOWN',NULL,th.thorfare_name)||'"'||','||
	'"'||l.name		        ||'"'||','||
	'"'||b.sequence_no		||'"'
from    t_regions r,t_post_towns p,t_delivery_offices do, t_routes ro, t_counties c,t_head_offices ho,
    t_buildings b,   t_thoroughfares th,t_localities l
where   th.thorfare_id = b.thorfare_id
and    nvl(b.invalid,'N')='N'
and    b.route_id=ro.route_id(+)
and    b.locality_id =l.locality_id(+)
and    ro.delivery_office_id=do.delivery_office_id(+)
and    do.post_town_id = p.post_town_id(+)
and    p.ho_id=ho.ho_id(+)
and     ho.county_id = c.county_id(+)
and     c.region_id = r.region_id(+)
and    r.name='NAAS'
and do.name='MAYNOOTH'
and ro.route_id=1715
group by r.name,p.name,do.name,ro.name,th.thorfare_name,l.name,b.sequence_no
ORDER BY b.sequence_no;
 
spool off
 
exit;



The output is:

52 rows selected.



What I want is, in the output is, DO NOT REPEAT DATA THE THOROUGHFARE and LOCALITY columns.
i.e until whenver they changes value.. and get the **** of the number of rows for that and display
For example, in the above output set,
the output should be:(I am manually counting and displaying this here:)

The output should be exactly as above as the requirement is this should be in this particular order and how many is the count in each thoroughfare or locality, as shown in the final output, above. PLS Help!!

thanks a million.

This is meaningless for us.

Use code tags and align the columns in result.
Use the "Preview Message" button to verify.
Also always post your Oracle version, with 4 decimals.

Post a working Test case: create table and insert statements along with the result you want with these data then we will be able work with your table and data.

Regards
Michel

BREAK and COMPUTE are not based on column names, they are based on the ALIASes used in the SELECT statement.

Your SELECT is just projecting one big concatenated column; you don't actually SELECT sequence_no or THORFARE_NAME.

Try:

COLUMN sequence_no NOPRINT
COLUMN THORFARE_NAME NOPRINT
BREAK ON THORFARE_NAME 
COMPUTE COUNT OF sequence_no ON THORFARE_NAME

SELECT sequence_no, THORFARE_NAME, <big concatenated column> ...

Hi Ross,thanks for replying, that was helpful.
But I need the output in a CSV file and need to do concatenated columns to get in that format. The following way worked for me perfectly in a text file output but when I do it in the CSV format, the break and compute commands doesnt work because as you say, i am not directly selecting those clumns...any ideas??
What works for the .txt format output is below:

set serveroutput on size 1000000
set pages 10000
set lines 1000
set arraysize 1
set trimspool on
set heading off
set feedback off
set echo off


BREAK ON THORFARE_NAME SKIP1 ON LOCALITY_NAME SKIP1 NODUP
COMPUTE COUNT OF sequence_no ON THORFARE_NAME


define DELIVERY_OFFICE_ID = &DELIVERY_OFFICE_id
spool c:\sqls\CLAR_OFFICE.txt
