Dear Experts,

I would like to run TRUNCATE TABLE statement in below code IF ONLY previous insert was successful. How can I implement this? It would be great if you offer me a piece of complemantary code.

BR


DECLARE
.......
BEGIN
.......
INSERT INTO MAIN_TABLE SELECT * FROM TEMP_TABLE;
COMMIT;
EXECUTE IMMEDIATE 'TRUNCATE TABLE TEMP_TABLE DROP STORAGE';
END;

If your insert or the commit fails then you'll raise an exception and the block will end (or jump to an exception handler if you declare one) so, your truncate is already in the correct place to ensure it only executes after a successful insert and commit
