Cursor with multiple inserts


Open in new window

l_sOwner VARCHAR2(30);

I need to insert into multiple tables reusing the same cursor and wondered if anyone could provide the best approach something similar to this. I am unable to use temporary tables.

l_sName VARCHAR2(30);
l_sType VARCHAR2(19);
CURSOR cur IS SELECT owner, object_name name, object_type type FROM all_objects;
BEGIN
dbms_output.put_line('Before CURSOR OPEN: ' || systimestamp);
OPEN cur;
dbms_output.put_line('Before LOOP: ' || systimestamp);
LOOP
FETCH cur INTO l_sOwner, l_sName, l_sType;
IF cur%NOTFOUND THEN
EXIT;
END IF;
INSERT INTO temp values (l_sOwner, l_sName, l_sType);
END LOOP;
LOOP
FETCH cur INTO l_sOwner, l_sName, l_sType;
IF cur%NOTFOUND THEN
EXIT;
END IF;
INSERT INTO temp22 values (l_sOwner, l_sName, l_sType);
END LOOP;
 
LOOP
FETCH cur INTO l_sOwner, l_sName, l_sType;
IF cur%NOTFOUND THEN
EXIT;
END IF;
INSERT INTO temp33 values (l_sOwner, l_sName, l_sType);
END LOOP;
 
 
 
 
CLOSE cur;
dbms_output.put_line('After CURSOR CLOSE: ' || systimestamp);

COMMIT;

You would need to close and open the cursor every time.  Cursors are forward only.

Why not do all 3 inserts in the one loop?
loop
  fetch
  insert1
  insert2
  insert3
end loop

or use a single multi-table insert


INSERT ALL
  INTO temp
VALUES (owner, object_name, object_type)
  INTO temp22
VALUES (owner, object_name, object_type)
  INTO temp33
VALUES (owner, object_name, object_type)
    SELECT owner, object_name, object_type FROM all_objects

just curious, did you try the multi-table insert?  It should be much more efficient since it's one sql instead of

1 + 3 * numrows

and eliminated sql to pl/sql context switches
