Dynamic Decode function - is it possible ?

Dynamic Decode function - is it possible ?


i have exactly same problem of above Thread but it did not mention answer.

RE: Dynamic Decode function - is it possible ?

The subject of thread186-1236075: MATRIX SQL QUERY is dynamically translating code values into a more readable form for reporting purposes.  I'm not sure why the link posted above isn't working.

RE: Dynamic Decode function - is it possible ?

Try this for starters:


var xrefc refcursor;

  v_str  VARCHAR2(10000) := 'SELECT JOB';
            FROM     emp
            ORDER BY 1)
    v_str := v_str
             ||''',e.sal,0)) AS "'
  v_str := v_str
           ||'FROM EMP E'
           ||'GROUP BY JOB ORDER BY JOB';
  OPEN :xrefc FOR v_str;
print :xrefc
