    Hi all,

    See the following two queries.

    select transaction_id||' '||control_no||' '||sysdate from coa_shipment_log where rownum<10

    I got result as

    TRANSACTION_ID||''||CONTROL_NO||''||SYSDATE
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1 6598537 29-MAY-02
    2 6598538 29-MAY-02
    3 6598539 29-MAY-02
    4 6598540 29-MAY-02
    5 6598541 29-MAY-02
    6 6598542 29-MAY-02
    7 6598543 29-MAY-02
    8 6598544 29-MAY-02
    9 6598545 29-MAY-02

    Then my users wanted '# some string' followed by the row

    So, I changed the query as

    select '#Some string '||chr(10)||transaction_id||' '||control_no||' '||sysdate from coa_shipment_log where rownum<10

    Now I get

    '#1234'||CHR(10)||TRANSACTION_ID||''||CONTROL_NO||''||SYSDATE
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    '#1234'||CHR(10)||TRANSACTION_ID||''||CONTROL_NO||''||SYSDATE

    #1234

    '#1234'||CHR(10)||TRANSACTION_ID||''||CONTROL_NO||''||SYSDATE

    Now, I don't want the extra empty line inbetween the rows.. Is there a way to suppress those??

    Thanks in advance..

    SQL> set recsep off
    SQL> select 'abc --'||chr(10)||'--'||username from all_users;

    'ABC--'||CHR(10)||'--'||USERNAME
    ---------------------------------------
    abc --
    --SYS
    abc --
    --SYSTEM
    abc --
    --TRACESVR
