Hi, I am trying to do a pivot report, first I did a simple pivot hard-coding the columns that I was about to use but, it is not convenient so I was asked to do a dynamic report where the columns were selected by a sub-query so I followed the solution from this post
Pivot query using XML option in APEX , but I get this error ORA-00932: inconsistent datatypes: expected - got CLOB, now I know that by default that query is set to return CLOB, but the thing is that when I specify the return value to varchar2 my browser freezes and I cannot go any further than that I need to reboot my browser, I'm using Oracle 11g and APEX 3.2.1 here is my query
xmlserialize(CONTENT DEPARTMENT_XML as varchar2(4000)) XML
S_GROUP AS "S GROUP",
FROM MYTABLE where PER = 'BNA' and department not like 'SI%'
IN (select distinct department from MYTABLE ) )
ORDER BY 1
