I can run the below statements "one-at-a-time",
but get the below ERROR when when trying to
run everything at one time.

declare A1 VARCHAR2(50) := NULL; B1 VARCHAR2(50) := NULL; C1 VARCHAR2(50) := NULL; D1 VARCHAR2(50) :=

'OUTPUT_TYPE' || CHR(31) ||'.A4/TA4J_C' || CHR(30) || 'DESCRIPTION' || CHR(31) ||'.A-4/TA-4J_C'||

CHR(30); BEGIN Output_Type_Api.New__(C1,B1,A1,D1,'DO'); END;

declare A1 VARCHAR2(50) := NULL; B1 VARCHAR2(50) := NULL; C1 VARCHAR2(50) := NULL; D1 VARCHAR2(50) :=

'OUTPUT_TYPE' || CHR(31) ||'.A4/TA4J_N' || CHR(30) || 'DESCRIPTION' || CHR(31) ||'.A-4/TA-4J_N'||

CHR(30); BEGIN Output_Type_Api.New__(C1,B1,A1,D1,'DO'); END;

DECLARE A1 VARCHAR2(50) := NULL; B1 VARCHAR2(50) := NULL; C1 VARCHAR2(50) := NULL; D1 VARCHAR2(50) :=

'OUTPUT_TYPE' || CHR(31) ||'.A4/TA4J_O' || CHR(30) || 'DESCRIPTION' || CHR(31) ||'.A-4/TA-4J_O'||

CHR(30); BEGIN Output_Type_Api.New__(C1,B1,A1,D1,'DO'); END;

without knowing anything about your API how about:

declare
      A1 VARCHAR2(50) := NULL;
      B1 VARCHAR2(50) := NULL;
      C1 VARCHAR2(50) := NULL;
      D1 VARCHAR2(50) := 'OUTPUT_TYPE' || CHR(31) ||'.A4/TA4J_C' || CHR(30) || 'DESCRIPTION' || CHR(31) ||'.A-4/TA-4J_C'|| CHR(30);
BEGIN
      Output_Type_Api.New__(C1,B1,A1,D1,'DO');

      D1 := 'OUTPUT_TYPE' || CHR(31) ||'.A4/TA4J_N' || CHR(30) || 'DESCRIPTION' || CHR(31) ||'.A-4/TA-4J_N'|| CHR(30);
      Output_Type_Api.New__(C1,B1,A1,D1,'DO');

      D1 := 'OUTPUT_TYPE' || CHR(31) ||'.A4/TA4J_O' || CHR(30) || 'DESCRIPTION' || CHR(31) ||'.A-4/TA-4J_O'|| CHR(30);
      Output_Type_Api.New__(C1,B1,A1,D1,'DO');
END;

If you want to have one PL/SQL block that runs each statement serially (not in parallel)

declare 
  A1 VARCHAR2(50) := NULL; 
  B1 VARCHAR2(50) := NULL; 
  C1 VARCHAR2(50) := NULL; 
  D1 VARCHAR2(50) := 'OUTPUT_TYPE' || CHR(31) ||'.A4/TA4J_C' || CHR(30) || 'DESCRIPTION' || CHR(31) ||'.A-4/TA-4J_C'|| CHR(30); 
BEGIN 
  Output_Type_Api.New__(C1,B1,A1,D1,'DO'); 

  D1 := 'OUTPUT_TYPE' || CHR(31) ||'.A4/TA4J_N' || CHR(30) || 'DESCRIPTION' || CHR(31) ||'.A-4/TA-4J_N'||CHR(30);

  Output_Type_Api.New__(C1,B1,A1,D1,'DO'); 

  D1 := 'OUTPUT_TYPE' || CHR(31) ||'.A4/TA4J_O' || CHR(30) || 'DESCRIPTION' || CHR(31) ||'.A-4/TA-4J_O'|| CHR(30); 
  Output_Type_Api.New__(C1,B1,A1,D1,'DO'); 
END;

Open in new window


If you really want all three calls to be run in parallel (so that the third call may be made before the first call), you could potentially use the DBMS_JOB package.  But I doubt that's what you're looking for unless Output_Type_Api.New__ is a relatively long-running call.

I think you need a "/" after each "end;" statement.

since you are on 10g, use DBMS_SCHEDULER to have jobs if you want to run them all at once ( parallely ).

Do not use DBMS_JOB

as awking000 says
with sqlplus you need to separate pl/sql blocks with /

and indenting helps readability ...
