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
