I have a requirement that I need to populate table of one column and this column is ser_no
based on the below sequence start and end value how I can populate/insert all the seq range into table of col ser_no.
create sequence batch
start with &st_val
increment by 1
Is there way using sql*plus? or I have to use pl/sql for/while loop?

just use seq.nextval in update.
you can write a function that returns nextval of the sequence and use that function value to update srno.
Thanks, but how I will insert into empty table with the start/end range.
How about ...
do a 'select count(*) from all_objects' first to makesure there's enough rows in there.
rownum <= &end_val
it works, but let's say my starting val = 100 and end val = 110.
Now instead it create 11 values from 100 .....110, it create 110 numbers. Please advise Thanks.
I advise you to think about how to get it to return the correct number of rows.
Try this in the where clause instead.
where rownum + &st_val -1 <= &end_val
