I need to return a p value for a specified z score in PL/SQL

is there a statistical function I can use to do this...for example

z score   (IN)         p value (OUT)
0.00                           .5
-0.67                          .25
-1.28                          .1
-1.65                          .05
-2.33                           .01

I don't think there is any statistical function for this.

We can write a simple select statement similar to

SELECT p_value
INTO out_variable
WHERE z_score = in_variable;

I need to derive the p value, there isn't a table to lookup the value

I have done more research now and confirmed tjere isn't a premade solution.  I have created a table with the necessary values and that will work for me just fine
Thanks for trying to help!
