    can Data Definition Language be used within a PL/SQL block or to say within the Begin/End of a procedure.

    The Idea is to drop & create certain tables from within a procedure.

    In 7 you have to use the package DBMS_SQL.
    In 8.0 for simple DDL you can use procedure DBMS_UTILITY.EXEC_DDL_STATEMENT
    In 8i you can use native dynamic SQL, with EXECUTE IMEMDIATE statement.

    Thumbs up

    Read on EXECUTE IMMEDIATE statement in PL/SQL. You should be able to execute DDL statements.

    Cheers
