Multiple INSERTs to Oracle in a single command - how to?

Hello Developers,

I just cannot figure this out. How to separate multiple Oracle INSERT
commands, so my inserts execute as a single batch. Semicolon does not seem
to work - Oracle returns: "ORA-00911: invalid character".

Could anyone advise?

Tomasz,

try to wrap your statements in begin .. end block as well as separating them
with semicolons:

begin
insert 1 sql;
insert 2 sql;
end

[How To Send Batch SQL Statements to Oracle]

Just as what Sergey said, wrapping the statement with begin. End block and
putting them in single line will achieve what you need.

I have tried with following line. (works fine)

System.Data.OracleClient.OracleConnection oc = new
System.Data.OracleClient.OracleConnection(...);
System.Data.OracleClient.OracleCommand ocd = new
System.Data.OracleClient.OracleCommand();
ocd.Connection=oc;
ocd.CommandText = @"begin insert into Task values(11,'tname');insert into
Task values(12,'tname');insert into Task values(13,'tname');insert into
Task values(14,'tname');end;";
oc.Open();
int flag=ocd.ExecuteNonQuery();
oc.Close();

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any more concern. I'm glad to
assist you.

Thanks!

Do you by a chance also know how to group/separate DROP TABLE statements?

The similar approach does not work.

Hello Tomasz,

It seems DDL(Data Definition Language) is not allowed in PL/SQL block, in
Oracle world.

I tried the following PL/SQL command on Oracle database.
begin
drop table t1;
drop table t2;
end;

ORA-06550: line 2, column 1;
PLS-00103: Encountered the symbol "DROP" when expecting one of the
following:
Begin case delare exit for goto if loop mod null pragma raise return select
update while with <an identifier> <a double-quoted delimited-identifier> <a
bind variable> << close current delete fetch lock insert open rollback
savepoint set sql execute commit for all merge pipe.

Then, I downloaded ODP.Net (Oracle Data Provider for .Net) and tried. I
received the same error message.

At last, I searched this issue on internet, found the following document.

http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/B19306_01/appdev.102/b14251/adfns_dynamic
_sql.htm#BJEHDACE

Executing DDL and SCL Statements in PL/SQL
Only dynamic SQL can execute the following types of statements within
PL/SQL program units:
" Data definition language (DDL) statements such as CREATE, DROP, GRANT,
and REVOKE
" Session control language (SCL) statements such as ALTER SESSION and SET
ROLE
" The TABLE clause in the SELECT statement
============================================================================
==============

Please try the following code and it works on my side. Hope this help.

ocd.CommandText = @"begin EXECUTE IMMEDIATE 'drop table t1';EXECUTE
IMMEDIATE 'drop table t2';end;";

Please let me know if you have any more concern. I'm glad to assist you.
Have a great day.
