Dear experts!
I want to practice with cursors and am working with Oracle Application Express.

I wrote a cursor, which when run in sql developer tells me p180_cnt_qb is not declared.

P180_cnt_qb is an Apex page item i.e. variable of type number in my case. Can you please tell me how to use that item value within this cursor?

A million thanks in advance!



set serveroutput on 
DECLARE
 QB_ID number();
 :p180_cnt_qb number();
 QB_ID := :p180_cnt_qb;
  CURSOR bsch_grad IS SELECT int_beschirmung_prozent FROM tbl_qb_beschirmung where lng_qb_sub = QB_ID; 
  temp_beschirmungsgrad tbl_qb_beschirmung.int_beschirmung_prozent%TYPE; 
BEGIN      

  OPEN bsch_grad;     
  LOOP         
    FETCH bsch_grad INTO temp_beschirmungsgrad;         
    EXIT WHEN bsch_grad%NOTFOUND;         
    dbms_output.put_line(temp_beschirmungsgrad);     
  END LOOP;     
  CLOSE bsch_grad; 
END;

try :

set serveroutput on
DECLARE
 QB_ID number();
 :p180_cnt_qb number();
  CURSOR bsch_grad IS SELECT int_beschirmung_prozent FROM tbl_qb_beschirmung where lng_qb_sub = QB_ID;
  temp_beschirmungsgrad tbl_qb_beschirmung.int_beschirmung_prozent%TYPE;
BEGIN      
 QB_ID := :p180_cnt_qb;
--> assignment to a variable should be in the begin block.. not in the declaration section.

  OPEN bsch_grad;    
  LOOP        
    FETCH bsch_grad INTO temp_beschirmungsgrad;        
    EXIT WHEN bsch_grad%NOTFOUND;        
    dbms_output.put_line(temp_beschirmungsgrad);    
  END LOOP;    
  CLOSE bsch_grad;
END;

hello nav_kum_v!

Thanks for having a look and answering. I still receive the same error!

Bind-Variable "p180_cnt_qb" is not declared (NOT DECLARED)
anonymous block completed

I am not quite sure whatelse I should try to get this to work.

If I hardcode the part QB_ID := 123324 I'll get the same error.

Maybe you have another idea?

Many thanks,

actually i do not know APEX pl/sql code.. i was finding a generic issue there and hence highlighted..

by the way, normally we declare like the below in pl/sql ...
QB_ID number;

is it that in APEX, we need to declare like

QB_ID number();

do you execute your code in SQL*PLUS or someother UI ?

Also what is the difference between those 2 variables as one has : in front of it.

 QB_ID number();   --> ?????
 :p180_cnt_qb number();   ---->????

>>P180_cnt_qb is an Apex page item i.e. variable of type number in my case.

What are you trying to do here? If that's a page item, it can only be used on that page (or, you can check its value in session value as well) within the APEX session.

>> QB_ID number();

I, too, am not familiar with this notation. Do you perhaps mean

QB_ID number;

instead? Adding the () is not something related to APEX notation.

I have still not found out how to use the page item in the cursor.
However, it works if the cursor function is saved as a procedure and the QB_ID is passed to the procedure when it is called!

Thanks for your input!

I appreciate it, although I lost track of this question recently.

The solution didn't directly work for me but I learned something I was unaware of! Hence it deserves a B I guess! Thank you for the input!
