Hi,
I have the attached insert which creates a new audit_template. How do I get the NEW AUDIT_TEMPLATE_ID?

I tried putting:
returning AUDIT_TEMPLATE_ID into lNewTemplateID ;

get this error:
ORA-06550: line 21, column 4:
PL/SQL: ORA-00933: SQL command not properly ended
ORA-06550: line 5, column 1:
PL/SQL: SQL Statement ignored1. DECLARE
2.     lNewTemplateID NUMBER;
3.      pCloneTemplateId NUMBER:=205;
4. BEGIN
 
without the
returning AUDIT_TEMPLATE_ID into lNewTemplateID ;
it inserts great!


DECLARE
    lNewTemplateID NUMBER;
     pCloneTemplateId NUMBER:=205;
BEGIN
INSERT INTO AUDIT_TEMPLATE (
   TITLE, LINE_OF_BUSINESS, 
   ACTIVE, RESPONSE_TYPE_1, 
   RESPONSE_TYPE_2, RESPONSE_TYPE_3, FILE_NBR_DISP, 
   CLIENT_DISP, CLAIMANT_DISP, OFFICE_DISP, 
   EXAMINER_DISP, SUPERVISOR_DISP, NURSE_DISP, 
   NURSE_SUPERV_DISP, TEMPL_CLIENT,cloned_from) 
select 
   TITLE||' (Copy)', LINE_OF_BUSINESS, 
   ACTIVE, RESPONSE_TYPE_1, 
   RESPONSE_TYPE_2, RESPONSE_TYPE_3, FILE_NBR_DISP, 
   CLIENT_DISP, CLAIMANT_DISP, OFFICE_DISP, 
   EXAMINER_DISP, SUPERVISOR_DISP, NURSE_DISP, 
   NURSE_SUPERV_DISP, TEMPL_CLIENT,AUDIT_TEMPLATE_ID 
   from AUDIT_TEMPLATE 
   where AUDIT_TEMPLATE_ID = pCloneTemplateId
returning AUDIT_TEMPLATE_ID into lNewTemplateID ;
 
htp.prn('Old ID['|| pCloneTemplateId||']');
htp.prn('New ID['|| lNewTemplateID||']');
END;

You can't use RETURNING in combination with a subquery on an insert, only with a VALUES clause

You cannot use returning clause if you use insert into ... select .... You can use it only for insert into ... values ....

See this:
SQL> create table bla (id number, value number);
 
Table created.
 
SQL> var x number;
SQL> insert into bla values (1, 2) returning id into :x;
 
1 row created.
 
SQL> insert into bla select 1, 2 from dual returning id into :x;
insert into bla select 1, 2 from dual returning id into :x
                                                *
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-00933: SQL command not properly ended

You can fetch the row you want to insert into local variables (i.e. instead of insert into ... select ... you put select ... into ...) and then issue INSERT INTO ... VALUES ... RETURNING.
