Would you please help me out with WITH CLAUSE use in Oracle 9i?
I need to insert the result set from the query which uses WITH CLAUSE.

    Credit as
        select      sum( Amount )           as Credit_Amount
        from        tmpTransactionMaster
        where       ACCOUNT_TYPE = 'CREDIT'
    Debit as
        select      sum( Amount )           as Debit_Amount
        from        tmpTransactionMaster
        where       ACCOUNT_TYPE = 'DEBIT'
    insert into tmpReconciliationLog ----------- ?????????????????????
    select  'Total Credit - Total Debit)'       as Formula,
            Credit_Amount - Debit_Amount    as Balance
    from Credit, Debit;
I have tried to use the same logic as in SQL Server 2005 but Oracle generated an error:
15:43:04  [WITH - 0 row(s), 0.031 secs]  [Error Code: 928, SQL State: 42000]  ORA-00928: missing SELECT keyword
Thank you for any help.

in oracle indeed, you cannot using INSERT when using the WITH statement.
you will need to create a view with the WITH statement, and insert from that...
