Procedure to run existing SQL queries
Posted on 2012-12-20
I need your advice. We have a number of SQL queries that consist of select statement, case statement, NVLs, left and inner joins, where clauses, parameters and so on. These queries extract thousand of rows, well up to 300,000 rows then the data is save in CSV files.
I was thinking of running these SQL queries from Oracle procedures that gets trigger by someone else’s procedure. Is it possible to create Oracle procedures to execute existing SQL queries without recreating a procedure from scratch? Unfortunately we don’t have time or resources or justification to PM to spend time recreating existing SQL queries.
And just another question while I am at it, are procedures the best approach to accomplish the mentioned task?
