PL/SQL Two statements

Hello expert,

I need to go to the DBA with a script to delete rows in two tables.

Wrote

DELETE FROM J3131_ACP_D_NOTE_SEGMENT
where NOTE_ID = 798105 and SEGMENT_ID in (2359467, 2359468, 2359469);

DELETE FROM J3131_ACP_D_NOTE_SEGMENT_MKT
where NOTE_ID = 798105 and SEGMENT_ID in (2359467, 2359468, 2359469);

COMMIT;

But it only executes the first statement

Have tried running the two statements in separate queries with positive
result. But when combined only the first goes.

Was told by the DB expert that the semicolon is needed after
the first statement, Is he wrong?

Thanks.

Hello flow01,

Figured it out.
I clicked the green triangle icon (Run Statement).
But I should have been clicking the icon next to the Run Statement
icon which is the Run Script (looks like a piece of paper with a green triangle).

This made both statements run.

Thanks.

I don't  use that normally, but in Oracle pl/sql developer when  there are more statements by default only 1 is executed (where the cursor is located).
But if you select al statement and use the  'run' button, all statements are executed.

And I just tried SQL Developer  Version 4.0.3.16 and that works the same : select all statement  and run.
But it works also without selecting:
the first run symbol (ctrl-enter) runs 1 statement (if nothing is selected)
the second run symbol (f5)  runs the script.

So try if that works in your version also.
