      It compiles Ok but I get this error when I run it (debug mode):

      Connecting to the database Oracle - D15.5.


      Executing PL/SQL: CALL DBMS_DEBUG_JDWP.CONNECT_TCP( '', '4215' )

      Debugger accepted connection from database on port 4215.

      Exception breakpoint occurred at line 72 of FW_SAV_QUERY_DETAIL.pls.



      If I take the SQL that creates the temporary table out and run it in a separate session it creates the table.


      Any assistance would be appreciated.

          Not sure what the execute immediate is doing there. This is DDL stuff.

            1)  This doesn't really have anything to do with SQL Developer.

            2) You shouldn't be creating a table in the middle of a procedure.  The whole point of global temporary tables is that they exist independently of the code and can be used by multiple sessions.

            3) execute immediate doesn't like ';' as  a statement terminator.

              Please mark the questin ANSWERED and repost it in the SQL and PL/SQL forum:



              You should expect a lot of negative feedback in that forum. There are so many things wrong with your code the responders there will have a field day.


              You shouldn't be using dynamic SQL to begin with, or be creating database objects dynamically since that means ALL queries in that code also have to be dynamic since the table doesn't exist yet.


              It also means the code will raise an exception the second time you execute it since you will be trying to create a table that will now already exist.


              And ROWNUM will not, and cannot, paginate result sets even using ORDER BY since there is no FIRST row in a table and other users may be inserting, updating or deleting rows that another user wants to paginate.

                     The REAL requirement is to create a TEMPORARY table within the procedure, populate it and paginate the results.

                     Trust me, the pagination stuff works when polulated with a result set.


                     Is it possible to create a TEMPORARY table, NOT a GLOBAL TEMPORARY table within a procedure?


                     The documentation I'm reading suggests that it is NOT possible.

                  You don't need to create a temporary table in the procedure at all!


                  Create the global temporary table outside the procedure and use it in the procedure like a normal table.  The contents of the table are private to you session.


                  Go and read the documentation on temporary tables.
