I'm new to stored procedures and I'm supposed to write one which will create an invoice once a booking is made and calculate the total amount for the invoice.  The only procedure I need to pass to the procedure is the number of the booking for which I need to create the invoice.  A sequence should be used to generate the invoice number.

The attributes in the INVOICE table are: invoice_no, invoice_date, total_amount, due_date and amount_paid.

Could anybody help please?

So to clarify, you need to Insert the new Values of an Invoice, which you want to create, into your "INVOICE" table, then your going to create a report off of this?  Where will fields like "Total_Amount" and "Due_Date" and "Amount_Paid" be derived from?  Are these values which will be passed in from other sources in the DB, or from an application?

Are you aware of Oracle's Sequences, I take it from your statement above you are.  You can use this to create your Invoice Number.  Invoice_Date would just be SYSDATE, the last three fields would need to be passed in or gotten from other sources in your DB.

What is the structure of your "Booking" table ? It sounds like, you will create a record in Booking table, and you should be able to generate (insert) an invoice for the booking.
