Designed for any Oracle professional who must quickly implement Oracle reporting, this indispensable guide offers new tips and tricks that make Oracle reporting simple. The basics of PL/SQL are introduced using multiple examples that include code snippets and sample code results. The example-driven methodology teaches PL/SQL language structures, anonymous blocks, and stored procedures so well that by the end of the first chapter users will be coding blocks confidently. Exercises are also provided intermittently to test knowledge comprehension. While gradually building on previous concepts and increasing in complexity, this handbook always focuses on manageability.
