Is Execute immediate will commit the update statement execute before?
In the example below when error happen when execute procedure Proc_1 at update table2, i notice that the update statement for table1 has been committed. If i uncomment the execute immediate statement, update table1 will not commit, anyone knows why this happen?

CREATE OR REPLACE Procedure Proc_1 As
 Begin
        -- UPDATE Table  1      
        Update table1 Set col1 = 'Col1';
       
      -- Execute immediate
       execute immediate ('Alter trigger trigger1 disable');
       
        -- Update Table 2      
        Update Table2 Set col2 = 'Col2';
        Commit;
     End If;
  Exception
     When others Then
      Rollback;
       Raise_application_error(-20747, Sqlcode || ' ' || Sqlerrm);
End;

No, execute immediate does not commit automatically. In your example update in table1 was commited due to DDL statement (Alter trigger trigger1 disable). DDL statements commit previously executed DML statements whether DDL statement successfully executed or not.
