    how to use reserved words???

    Hi all

    I have a procedure and it has the following statement in it

    p_statement_header := 'EMP ACCOUNT - TAX INVOICE & ADVICE OF PAY';

    So when I try to create the procedure it asks me to input the value for advice.
    Enter value for advice:

    and I just press enter and everything goes fine. But I dont want it to ask me for the value and I use the following to get rid of it:

    p_statement_header := 'EMP ACCOUNT - TAX INVOICE'||' & '|| 'ADVICE OF PAY';

    Is there any other way other than this???????

    Please let me know.

    Thanks in advance.
