Hi.

Would you please give me a workbale sample of the function which can simulate crosstab (pivot).

I need to send two parameters (group_id, type_id) to this function from the view and this function should return the list of comma sepparated values of that type_id.

So if there are three records with type_id values 'a', 'b', 'c' I need to convert them in one text field like 'a, b, c' from the view (query).

Thanks.

Something like this should do it:
create or replace function myCommaList (in_gid in integer, in_tid in integer)

  return varchar2

is

  rsetTab dbms_utility.uncl_Array;

  tablen  binary_integer;

  list    varchar2(4000);

  

begin

  select val bulk collect into rsetTab

  from table1

  where group_id = in_gid

  and type_id = in_tid;

  

  dbms_utility.table_to_comma(rsetTab, tablen, list);

  

  return list;

end myCommaList ;

/
