Hi,

I have a table as below

create table t_temp_tb(a number,b number);

and data  like  column a is sequence number and column b contains values for some  rows only like below.
1      400      
2            
3            
4      500      
5            
6            

Now I would like to update the table as below
ie after selecting from the table

(select a,b from t_temp_tb order by a;)

1      400      
2      400      
3      400      
4      500      
5      500      
6      500

We do not know how many records exists in the table in advance.
Can you please let me know how can I update?
Because this update needs to be run daily on a table automatically in a job.

thanks.
