Get the names of tables belonging to the user

You can do in in a single sql statement.

Take the following solution, add the table_name, an insert into table (select ...), change the view from user_tables to dba_users and add a: where username in ('A','B');
And you should be good to go.

Num_rows is an estimate based off statistics.  You need to be aware the number might be off.
