declare
cust_id_var ph2_item.customer_id% TYPE :=0;
ship_date_var ph2_item.ship_date% TYPE :=to_date('01-jan-90','dd-mon-yy') ;
item_id_var ph2_item.item_id% TYPE;
new_item_id ph2_item.item_id% TYPE;
new_ord_id ph2_item.order_id% TYPE;
cursor consolidation_cursor is
select n.no_of_sites ,p.customer_id,p.order_id, p.item_id, p.order_date, p.ship_date FROM ph2_item p, no_of_sites n ORDER BY p.order_date, p.customer_id, p.ship_date, p.order_id, p.item_id for UPDATE OF p.order_id, p.item_id;
begin
for con_cursor in consolidation_cursor loop
if ( con_cursor.customer_id = cust_id_var AND
con_cursor.ship_date=ship_date_var AND
con_cursor.no_of_sites>1 )
or
(con_cursor.item_id > item_id_var)  THEN
new_item_id := new_item_id + 1;
else
select new_order_id.nextval into new_ord_id from dual;
new_item_id:=1;
end if;

cust_id_var := con_cursor.customer_id;
ship_date_var :=  con_cursor.ship_date;
item_id_var:= con_cursor.item_id;

update ph2_item
SET item_id = new_item_id,
order_id = new_ord_id
WHERE CURRENT OF consolidation_cursor;
end LOOP;

end;
