mycol
---------
xyzmap
xyzjob1
xyztab2
xyztime
abcledger
abclicense
abctime
abcmap
pqrmap
pqrlinked
pqrtime

i want to derive a column where the value %map repeats for each group(abc, xyz,pqr)

mycol             mydercol
---------           -------------
xyzmap          xyzmap
xyzjob1          xyzmap
xyztab2          xyzmap
xyztime         xyzmap
abcledger      abcmap
abclicense    abcmap
abctime        abcmap
abcmap        abcmap
pqrmap        pqrmap
pqrlinked     pqrmap
pqrtime        pqrmap

it is not clear what do you mean by 'each group' but you could try this
SELECT substr(mycol, 1, 3) || 'map' mydercol FROM mytable

try like this.
select t1.MyCol,t2.mydercol
  from test t1,
(select MyCol as mydercol,replace(MyCol,'map','') as MyCol1
  from test
 where MyCol like '%map') t2 where t1.MyCol like t2.MyCol1||'%'

Open in new window

Is it always the first three characters that determines your "%map"?  If yes, then a simple query like this can do that for you: substr(mycol,1,3)||'map'.

You could create a view like this:
create or replace view map_view
(mycol, mydircol)
as select mycol, substr(mycol,1,3)||'map'
from your_table;

gs79,
You need to confirm or refute that the "group" is always the first three characters. If so, the concatenation already shown should work. If not, the task becomes a little more complex and will require further criteria for determining the "group".
