    How to use Spool from a PL/SQL Stored Procedure?

    Hi Friends,

    I had a requirement where I have to use spool technique in a stored procedure.From thwe stored procedure the output data has to be spooled to a file. How I can do this ?

    The following is my code.Pls modify the code and give me the script. As I am newbie let me know if any errors are there.

    I need to call this procedure from a Scheduler on a fixed date.How can I do this.

    CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE GETDATE
    AS
    CURSOR C1 IS SELECT * FROM NEWAFFAIRS
    WHERE DOB BETWEEN TO_DATE('07-'||TO_CHAR(ADD_MONTHS(SYSDATE,-1),'MON')||'-'
    ||TO_CHAR(ADD_MONTHS(SYSDATE,-1),'YYYY'),'DD-MON-YYYY') AND TO_DATE('07-'||TO_CHAR((SYSDATE),'MON')||'-'
    ||TO_CHAR((SYSDATE),'YYYY'),'DD-MON-YYYY');
    CREC C1%ROWTYPE;
    BEGIN
    OPEN C1;
    LOOP
    FETCH C1 INTO CREC;
    EXIT WHEN C1%NOTFOUND;
    DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE(CREC.NEWID||','||CREC.SURNAME||','||CREC.NAMES||','||CREC.DOB);
    END LOOP;

    Use UTL_FILE package to write to a file, and use DBMS_JOB package to schedule it.
