I am trying to create a new table when the status in another table = Yes and need help making this work.  Your assistance is appreciated.

(if select status from desaim_status where project_file_id = 2993;) = 'Yes';) then
create table desaim2993 as select * from inven_items_tracking where project_file_id = 2993;

you cannot do a create table directly in PL/SQL, but you can use dynamic SQL:


declare v_status varchar2(100);
BEGIN
select max(status) into v_status from desaim_status where project_file_id = 2993;
if v_status= 'Yes' then
execute immediate 'create table desaim2993 as select * from inven_items_tracking where project_file_id = 2993';
end if;
END;
