Insert/update statement in Oracle

Hello,

I have a log table (DQ_LOG) with columns as below

CREATE TABLE DQ_LOG
(
  RUN_SEQ_NO       NUMBER(10), ----Autonumber
  RUN_DT           DATE, -----sysdate
  TABLE_NAME       VARCHAR2(100 BYTE), ----table name
  SOURCE_COUNT     NUMBER(20),
  TARGET_COUNT     NUMBER(20),
  S_MINUS_T_COUNT  NUMBER(20),
  T_MINUS_S_COUNT  NUMBER(20),
   LAST_UPDT_USER   VARCHAR2(50 BYTE),          
  LAST_UPDT_DATE   DATE
)

Open in new window


I want to fill this table with data that I calculate within scripts. I have a table name let's say (DQ_Action1) and for that I have the calculation script like below

Select count(*) from TableA  ---- This value should be updated in column SOURCE_COUNT    
Select count(*) from TableB ---- This value should be updated in column TARGET_COUNT    
Select count(*) from TableC ---- This value should be updated in column S_MINUS_T_COUNT  
Select count(*) from TableD---- This value should be updated in column T_MINUS_S_COUNT

So my expected results should be values like this for each table name
(1, '10/06/2014', 'DQ_ACTION1', 1234,123,45,69, USER, '10/6/2014')
(1, '10/06/2014', 'DQ_ACTION2', 1234,123,45,69, USER, '10/6/2014')
(1, '10/06/2014', 'DQ_ACTION3', 1234,123,45,69, USER, '10/6/2014')

Can someone please let me know how can I do that in SQL query?

Thank you

Maybe something like:

insert into dq_log (some_seq.nextval, sysdate,
  (select count(*) from tableA),
(select count(*) from tableB),
(select count(*) from tableC),
(select count(*) from tableD),
user,
sysdate);

sysdate and user are functions that return the current OS date and the username of the database users that has connected to the database.

Adjust those columns as appropriate.

I am just concerned about the performance, since some of the tables are huge and I am wondering if there is any other possibility for this.

Thank you

To get the count from a table, you need to count the rows.

NOW, if the count's don't need to be accurate there is a num_rows column in USER_TABLES (and the DBA and ALL views as well).  This column is only as good as the last time the statistics were updated.

It is a good 'estimate' but should not be relied on for 100% accuracy.
