sys_connect_by_path subquery

Hi,
I'm not a strong Oracle SQL coder and have a query that is taking far too long to run. What I need is for it as one of the columns to return a concatenated list of values from another table. In brief I have the following:

SELECT
a, b, c,
(select ltrim(max(sys_connect_by_path(rpt_num,',')), ',')
              from (select occ, rpt_num, row_number() over (partition by occ order by rownum) rn from oq)
              connect by occ = prior occand rn = prior rn + 1
              START WITH rn = 1
              group by occ
              HAVING occ= o.occ) Related_Reports
FROM TableO o

a,b, and c are other columns in my query

I suspect that I have messed something up in this, although running the sunquery as a query does return me what I need.

Any suggests or help is most welcome.

Please provide raw sample data and expected results.

Also full database version (all 4 numbers like 11.2.0.2).

Thanks

Starting from the end - developing with 11.2.0.4, some testing with 11.2.0.3. Will be shipped to customers who could be on varying versions from 10.2.0.3 or later. Our next release will also include 12c (don't know which patch version yet.

Some raw data
Table TableO
Occ   (PK)               Date                  OccTitle
O14-1                   25-01-2014        Title 1
O14-2                   27-01-2014        Title 2
O13-25                15-11-2013         Title 3

Table oq
Occ                     rpt_num
O14-1               ABC123
O14-1               DEF986
O14-1               AA1234
O14-2               BB123
O14-2               ADBR12

Output desired
Occ                       Date                  OccTitle           Related_Reports
O14-1                   25-01-2014        Title 1            ABC123,DEF986,AA1234
O14-2                   27-01-2014        Title 2            BB123,ADBR12
O13-25                15-11-2013         Title 3           '' (zero length string)


Thanks

As long as the concatenated list of reports is less than 4000 characters try listagg:

select o.occ,
	to_char(o.somedate,'DD-MM-YYYY') mydate,
	o.occtitle,
	listagg(q.rpt_num,',') within group(order by rpt_num) related_reports
from tableo o
	left outer join oq q on o.occ=q.occ
group by o.occ,
	to_char(o.somedate,'DD-MM-YYYY'),
	o.occtitle
/

If it can exceed 4000 characters I would look at the XML trick or a customized function like tbl2str posted here:

I'll work on the XML version and post back shortly.

t is very unlikely to ever come near 4000 char

The XML version:
SELECT o.occ,

	o.occtitle,
       rtrim(
           extract(xmlagg(xmlelement("s", q.rpt_num || ',') order by rpt_num), '/s/text()').getclobval(),
           ','
       )

By adapting this slightly, I was able to reduce query overhead by 90%. SQL Monitoring tool has now identified a similar expression that I can work on. As always, thanks for your prompt assistance.
