Re: dynamic sql and dates

Wolfgang Breitling


Violently shaking my head in disbelief. Even if you don't know
already, a quick trip to the Oracle documentation gives the right solution:

create or replace procedure ins_date
  l_date date := sysdate;
  l_number number := 99;
  l_sql  varchar2(1000);
  l_sql := 'insert into kk select :dt from dual';
  execute immediate l_sql using l_date;
