Row to Column Conversion for Tabletype data

Hi All,

I have two tabletype arrays like below.

tabtype_config_option_ft.extend;
tabtype_config_option_ft(1) := 'COLOR';
tabtype_config_option_ft.extend;
tabtype_config_option_ft(2) := 'WIDTH';
tabtype_config_option_ft.extend;
tabtype_config_option_ft(3) := 'LENGTH';
tabtype_config_option_ft.extend;
tabtype_config_option_ft(4) := 'SIZE';            


tabtype_config_options.extend;
tabtype_config_options(1) := 'RED';
tabtype_config_options.extend;
tabtype_config_options(2) := '1.23';
tabtype_config_options.extend;
tabtype_config_options(3) := '4.56';
tabtype_config_options.extend;
tabtype_config_options(4) := '13';

Open in new window


My requirement is to convert this data from row to column. The expected result should be:

COLOR	WIDTH	LENGTH	SIZE
RED	1.23	4.56	13

Open in new window


Is it possible to perform the row to column conversion?

Thanks

This is not even SQL!
It's simple array manipulation, what have you tried?

Hi Mike,

My requirement is, I have one stored procedure with two input parameters like tabtype_config_option_ft and tabtype_config_options. I have to compare this user passed values with some of the SQL queries which is used in the procedure. Since the input data is coming as row type data I am planning to convert that into column and use it in the SQL queries and other calculations.

Usually we can do this row to column conversion if the data is stored in the tables. But here the data is stored in array's.

Thanks

Assume that I have table data like below

OPTION_FT        OPTION_VAL
COLOR	          RED
WIDTH	          1.23
LENGTH	          4.56
SIZE	                  13

Open in new window


Now i want to convert from to column like below.

COLOR	WIDTH	LENGTH	SIZE
RED	1.23	4.56	13

. . . But here the data is stored in array's.
And what is so difficult about transposing an array?
Arrays are arrays, even in PL/SQL.

you want to PIVOT:

select *
from my_table
pivot (max(option_val) for (option_ft) in (  
'COLOR' as col_color,
'WIDTH' as col_width,  
'LENGTH' as col_length,
'SIZE'   as col_size))

One way:
SQL> CREATE OR REPLACE TYPE Tabtype IS VARRAY (100) OF VARCHAR2 (40);
  2  /

Type created.

SQL> SET SERVEROUT ON SIZE 1000000;
SQL> DECLARE
  2     Tabtype_Config_Option_Ft Tabtype := Tabtype ();
  3     Tabtype_Config_Options Tabtype := Tabtype ();
  4     I              PLS_INTEGER;
  5     J              PLS_INTEGER;
  6  BEGIN
  7     Tabtype_Config_Option_Ft.EXTEND;
  8     Tabtype_Config_Option_Ft ( 1) := 'COLOR';
  9     Tabtype_Config_Option_Ft.EXTEND;
 10     Tabtype_Config_Option_Ft ( 2) := 'WIDTH';
 11     Tabtype_Config_Option_Ft.EXTEND;
 12     Tabtype_Config_Option_Ft ( 3) := 'LENGTH';
