Oracle: Insert function


I have a function that uploads my data for each execution.  I am using a create and replace function.  The issue is that I want to keep my records in the table everytime I execute the function.

What is the best way to do this?  I assume the "replace" is the issue but want expert advice.

your old data is disappearing because of this line

create or replace on the function declaration has no impact on data within tables that function references.

maybe I'm not understanding the question though.

can you post some code/data with expected results?

I have attached info that can help you understand.

So what is happening is that when I run execute function it replaces the values that I have already in the table.  For example:

if john doe and his stats are already in the table, when I execute the fuction is overwrites the data for john doe.

I want to have multiple stats for john doe, so I can store is daily productivity.

The way that my function is written isn't what I want.  I have seen insert statements but not sure how to modify my function to do that.

Create or replace is to create the function and it doesn't affect the data. After you create function, you dont need to create it again and again.. the way the insert query is written looks weird... It has insert query for every operator (hard coded). instead you can pass the operator as parameter and use the insert query only once.. and call the function for every operator you wants to insert....
I can't read your word document,  

looks like it was probably trying to show me some data and I think table structure.

just post text of those, not pictures

Yeah, I was reading that I could do that but I am not sure how.  

If we take the way it is.. "one step at a time I guess".  How can I modiify it to insert?  Perhaps using a procedure?

Ahhh..  Let me see what happens when I remove it! thanks

Its making the table empty


You can comment this line., so that it stops overwriting and you can insert your new records and manipulate the data as you want.

Great, thanks everyone.  I will be posting another question about how to pass the operator as parameter and use the insert query only once..
