Current row

Here’s a question that I’ve had on my todo (and draft posts) list for a few years – so I’m presenting it as a task for anyone who can demonstrate the answer.

If you’ve got a pl/sql cursor open and you’re using the “update current of” syntax, what happens if you update the same row twice but the row comes from a partitioned table and moves to a new partition on the first update ?

If you have a demo that you want to include in the comments then start with “sourcecode” and end with “/sourcecode” – in square brackets, without the quotation marks – to get a fixed font format and space preservation. If you have a good demonstration or reference article that you can link to, a simple URL will do nicely.#

My Sony Smartwatch Girl Tech Review

Anyone who knows me, will also know that I’m an Android person.  I have nothing against Mac products and really do think they are cool, but I use what works for me and I am very content with my Samsung Android Galaxy S4 for my Smartphone and Galaxy Note 10.1 for my tablet.

Merry Holidays…!

Random slowdown

One of the old, old questions came up on OTN a few days ago:  “What reasons are there for a piece of (batch) SQL to run very slowly occasionally when it usually runs very quickly ?” Then a similar one appeared a couple of days later. There are plenty of reasons, so I thought I’d start listing a few and see how many other (realistic) reasons other people wanted to add.
