Good Day, Experts -

Is there a way for a .SQL file being run in SQL Plus to exit? Here is what I have to accomplish...

UPGRADE.SQL contains the following:

BEGIN
    IF MyPKG.IsUpdateAllowed( ) = FALSE THEN
        EXIT; -- I want to stop the remainder of the script from firing
    END IF;
END;
.... the rest of my DML appears here in the script... I don't want this to fire if the previous PKG procedure returned FALSE.

Is there a way to do this?

Thanks,
Tom
