Pipeline Function

Hi

Having created a number of pipeline functions. I'm having an issue with one where it never returns.  If I remove the select from the function and run it, returns in 1.5mins.

Not sure what could be causing this and what can be done as work around ? I've tried doing an insert into a new table from within the function though when I come to run it I get 'Cannot perform DML operation inside a query' using select * from table(pipeline)

Thanks in advance

Could you please post the code?

Your INSERT does not work because you can't do DML inside a function (except if you use PRAGMA AUTONOMOUS_TRANSACTION).

Hi

A slim down version of the code

CREATE OR REPLACE FUNCTION test.get_pipeline_test
    RETURN pipeline_table
    PIPELINED
AS
BEGIN
insert into return_table_TEST (
          ref_entity_name
         ,curve_last_marked_date
        )
(select  ref_entity_name,
            TO_CHAR(curve_last_marked_date,'MM/DD/YYYY HH:MI:SS AM') curve_last_marked_date
  from table_a
               );
               
     FOR x IN (select * from table_a)
    LOOP
        PIPE ROW ( pipeline_type(
         x.ref_entity_name
         ,x.curve_last_marked_date
        ));
    END LOOP;

    RETURN;
    
    
END get_pipeline_test;
