The tool doesn't really matter.  The syntax does.  The documentation for MERGE, with examples, is here.

If you have more specific questions, please post requirements with sample data and expected results.


I am asking if there is an AUTOMATED way to create a merge statement. I realize the syntax works the same in any tool.  I was TOAD has a way of doing this but i don't know if SQL developer has this.

I don't use SQL Developer that much, so I'm not sure if it has a wizard for creating statements.  I doubt it.  You really should learn how to write the statements.  You'll go a lot further if you know the syntax than relying on a tool to generate it for you.  What happens if you go to a new location that doesn't allow that tool?
