This is with regards to the DBMS_JOB utility in ORACLE. I need to run a job at 10:00 AM on all days. The problem is that iam not able to specify the exact date as such. I can either set the next date to some currentdate+x number of hours/monutes/seconds. But ia not able to psefcify the exact date.

Let us assume that i need to run a job on
02-jan-2001 10:00AM  and my current system date is 01-jan-2001 18:00PM

My DBMS_JOB statement would like :

dbms_job.submit(:jnum,'xxx;',sysdate,'sysdate+(16/24)');

But say if i run this job at 20:00 Hrs on 01-jan-2001 the next date time will go further to 14:00 Hrs on 02-jan-2001.
How do i specify the exact time ?

Help me out

Very URGENT

dbms_job.submit(:jnum,'xxx;','sysdate','trunc(sysdate)+10/24+1');
It worked for me.

Good luck,

DBMS_JOB.SUBMIT (
   :job_no,
   <procedure_name>,
   sysdate,
   trunc(sysdate) + 10/24 + 1);

This will ensure the job ':job_no' to run everyday at 10:00 am.

Well, renuraj, good comment, but you missed the quotes :) (both global " and local ' )

Hi racher, welcome to ExEx.

The guidelines on comments and answers below and the ExEx-tiquette would have suggested that posting such an answer is not very appropriate. I agree that your proposed answer will work, but it's not that novel compared to the approaches proposed above to qualify for an answer (at least not according to what I've seen until now in ExEx Oracle thread).

Yours,
F.

Hey, vish, my suggestion came within 8 minutes only after your request. You said it's URGENT, but you waited for renuraj's proposal (which is missing the same number of quotes as mine, BTW :) ). Your choice.
But why did you grade with B racher's solution if that was your choice?
Just wandering, 'cause it's still your choice. I don't even expect an answer.

Maybe you'll want to take a look at the recommendations about grading. racher's proposal works OK, solves the problem and contains the actual sample piece of code to solve it. What would a questioner want more? Why "punish" him with a B grade?

Yours,
F.
