    dbms_metadata.get_ddl

    I am logged in as scott/tiger and performing

    SQL> select dbms_metadata.get_ddl('TABLE','EMP') from dual;
    ERROR:
    ORA-06502: PL/SQL: numeric or value error
    ORA-00942: table or view does not exist


    when I do a select * from emp and can see the table.

    Any ideas?

    Hi,
    in SQL*PLUS it would not work as i tried,
    but it worked with my SQLWindow (Pl/sql-Developer).
    The problem could be the CLOB-Return-Type.

    Try do implement a PL/SQL-Block and fetch the result into a PL/SQL-String.
    and display the result with dbms_output()
    porbably this could work.

    Orca
