    Hi,

    I have a procedure which needs the date passed to it as an IN parameter.

    when I run it manually it works fine
    e.g exec test ('02-SEP-2002')
    How can I automate this in order to get the IN parameter for yesterdays date, generated automatically.

    Thanks in advance.

    exec test(trunc(sysdate)-1)
    do I need to change the proc, or can I use DBMS_JOB with the format you give!

    Thanks in advance

    Let's say you wan't the procedure TEST() to be run every day at 8:00AM by DBMS_JOB. You would submit such a job with something like:
    Code:
    declare
      x binary_integer;
    begin
      dbms_job.submit
       (job => x,
        what => 'test(trunc(sysdate)-1)',
        next_date => trunc(sysdate) + 8/24,
        interval => 'trunc(sysdate) + 8/24 + 1'
       );
      commit;
    end;
