The rowcount post brings up an interesting question:  I read the question to mean 'after some time' not 'while the code is running'.

Please clarify.

slightwv, you are correct in the evening I want to see if there has been a change in a record and only select the records that have been changed.

You are describing auditing.  Oracle has several audit methods depending on your specific requirements and how your applications are designed.

I suggest you chek out the online docs.  They will talk about the various options.

I'm online right now and can't provide the exact links but the docs are online at www.oracle.com

You can either manually record the operations with your custom PL/SQL code using triggers, or else let the DB do the work by using DBMS_FGA (Fine-Grained Auditing)
