.NEXTVAL

hi guys

I have a procedure which is inserting rows in
PROCEDURE insert_person
    ( input_insert             person_type   --person_type is a  TYPE
    , po_success     OUT NOCOPY CHAR
    )
IS

c_program_name CONSTANT VARCHAR2(64) := c_package_nm||'.insert_person';

bulk_errors EXCEPTION;
PRAGMA EXCEPTION_INIT (bulk_errors, -24381);

BEGIN

    po_success := 'Y';

    FORALL i IN input_insert.FIRST..input_insert.LAST  
    SAVE EXCEPTIONS
        INSERT INTO person_table    
            ( id
            , name            
            , lst_updt_timestamp            
            )
        VALUES
            ( person_map.NEXTVAL                    
            , input_insert(i).person_name
            , SYSTIMESTAMP
           
            );


EXCEPTION
  WHEN bulk_errors THEN
    FOR i IN 1..SQL%BULK_EXCEPTIONS.COUNT
    LOOP
        person_exception_error_log
            ( pi_error_type     => 'FATAL'
            , pi_program_name   => c_program_name
            , pi_program_type   => c_program_type
            , pi_error_code     => SQL%BULK_EXCEPTIONS(i).ERROR_INDEX
            , pi_error_msg      => SQL%BULK_EXCEPTIONS(i).ERROR_CODE
            );
    END LOOP;

    po_success := 'N';

  WHEN OTHERS THEN
    person_exception_error_log  
        ( pi_error_type     => 'FATAL'
        , pi_program_name   => c_program_name
        , pi_program_type   => c_program_type
        , pi_error_code     => SQLCODE
        , pi_error_msg      => SQLERRM
        );

    po_success := 'N';
   
END insert_person;      

In above code i >>person_map.NEXTVAL      i want to know where is person_map  defined, any idea how can i do that?

thanks

It is an Oracle Sequence:

select * from user_sequences where sequence_name='PERSON_MAP';

it says no rows selected.  Is 'PERSON_MAP' defined anywhere or can it be any name?

thanks

It has to be that name.  Maybe it is created in a different schema.

If not locally owned, try ALL_SEQUENCES or of you have permission DBA_SEQUENCES.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

You probably need to select from all_sequences or dab_sequences.

I believe in V10 of the site, you can now edit your own comments.

No problem, it happens all the time.  More ofter with the new version with the scrolling.

That can sure come in handy. What's the procedure to do that?

Do you not see "Edit Comment" under your post?  It might be only if no one else posts after it, you can edit.  The next time you make a new post, see if it is there.

That was probably the case.

Will check it out. Thanks.

It was there and this is the edit. Thanks again.

when i run the query
select * from user_sequences where sequence_name='PERSON_MAP';

it works now, i was using lower case which is why it wasnt working.

From the above link::
>>>Use the CREATE SEQUENCE statement to create a sequence, which is a database object from which multiple users may generate unique integers

Can a create a sequence which generates unique alphanumeric values something like

A001
A002
A003

Is that possible ?

Oracle automatically makes objects UPPER case unless you force them to non-upper case (which you should never do).

>>Can a create a sequence which generates unique alphanumeric values something like

No but you can concatinate the character and format the number:
'A' || to_char(person_map.NEXTVAL,'009')

Just make sure your to_char format has enough values for the maximum size of the sequence.

You could also use -
'A'||lpad(to_char(person_map.nextval),3,'0')
