Hi,

I want to invoke a sql script from the procedure which i am creating from another sql script main.sql.
Typically my code would look like
create procedure x
begin
       some code.........
       run a.sql
       some code....

end;

I tried using
sql_stmt := '@a.sql'
execute immediate sql_stmt;

but it didn't worked.

Thanks in advance,
Smita

Step.2.

set line 2;
set buffer 1000;
set line 1000;
set trimout off;
clear screen;
set heading off
col aday format a38
col atime format a15
show user
select '  '||to_char(sysdate,'hh12:mm A.M.') atime,
'  '||to_char(sysdate,'Day Month dd,yyyy') aday ,
' Day of Year:'||to_char(sysdate,'DDD') from dual;
prompt
prompt
set trims on;
set heading on;
clear col;

prompt  =                                                      =
prompt  =          BYE    Thank you for using the System       =
