hi,

each value of 1 is representing an error that is now I have 3 errors and error number would be the position of the 1 in the binary number

1000000000000000000011

how to write a procedure that checks each position (1-31 since they have 31 errors) and if it’s a 1 in the position, then that’s the error.


so I should get result as
error number 1
error number 2  
error number 22

thanks very much in advance.

Try this:


create or replace procedure myproc(inStr in varchar2)
is
begin

	for i in 1..length(inStr) loop
		if substr(inStr,-i,1) = '1' then
			dbms_output.put_line('error number ' || i);
		end if;
	end loop;

end;
/
show errors

exec myproc('1000000000000000000011');
