    Variable in INSTR

    Hi,
    How can i pass a variable in INSTR function.

    if i say
    instr(m.id,v_id,') it is taking v_id as a Literal rather than a variable.
    How to handle this ?

    You not using SQL then, if it was SQL you need dynamic SQL

    You simply do

    l_var1 := instr(field1, v_id)?
