    I am trying to create a report in SQLPLUS using the functions "break on" and "compute". But I am not getting the desired results. The SQL is as follows:
    BREAK ON SERVICE_OID skip 2
    COMPUTE SUM OF FLAT_RATE ON SERVICE_OID
    SELECT substr(SERVICE_OID, 1, 25), substr(NVL(FLAT_RATE, 0), 1, 10)
    FROM CONTRACT_SERVICE
    WHERE SERVICE_OID IN ('S095', 'S096', 'S097', 'S098')
    ORDER BY SERVICE_OID

    the results are being shown as follows:

    SUBSTR(SERVICE_OID,1,25) SUBSTR(NVL
    ------------------------- ----------
    S095 1500
    S095 2000
    S096 0
    S097 0
    S097 0
    S097 0
    S097 0
    S097 0
    S098 0
    S098 0
    S098 0
    S098 0

    What is it that I am missing in my statement? I appreciate the help.

    Thanks,
    Chintz

    You don't have a SERVICE_OID in your resultset because you've applied a function to it. So SQL*Plus can perform a BREAK and a COMPUTE on SERVICE_OID as there is no such column there. You should add an alias SERVICE_OID into your select list and you'll be fine:

    SELECT substr(SERVICE_OID, 1, 25) SERVICE_OID, substr(NVL(FLAT_RATE, 0), 1, 10)
    FROM CONTRACT_SERVICE .....

    Thanks that did fix the issue with adding the break on in the report. The other issue I am having the report is not cumputing the sum. I used SERVICE_OID & FLAT RATE as aliases for the columns but it does not display the sum of the total service_oids.
