    Hi,

    Can anyone please give me the syntax for using a sequence in the values clause of an insert statement :

    e.g
    insert into table1(id)
    values (select seq.nextval from sys.dual)

    the above is not correct syntax.

    Thanks

    Suresh

    Try:

    insert into EMP values (emp_seq.nextval, ....);

    commit;

    I have read on this board that selecting the next sequence value from dual can leave open cursors.

    Good luck.

    Actually, try:

    insert into table1(id)
    select seq.nextval from sys.dual;
