Create a procedure which displays the total cost of all appointments by month for all appointments with the date before current date.
Your select statement must have condition date < SYSDATE

How can I do this?

Do you mean something like:
Select trunc(date_column,'MM') as month, sum(cost_column)  as mtd_cost where date_column<sysdate group by trunc(date_column,'MM')
?

yes, something like that, but I've to create user defined procedure. When the procedure is called, it'll display the total cost of all appointments by month for all appointments with the date before current date.

Which way to display? there are several possibilities such as DBMS_OUTPUT etc. Would you like see all total costs for months before current date or just the one last Month to day total value?
