    Post SQL works fine in SQL developer, throws ORACLE exception in SQL PLus

    Hi All

    cnt number;
    SELECT count(*) INTO cnt
    FROM user_tables
    WHERE table_name = 'SAMPLE_TABLE_01';
    IF cnt = 0 THEN
    execute immediate 'CREATE TABLE SAMPLE_TABLE_01
    sample_column01 DATE,
    sample_column02 VARCHAR2 (128),
    sample_column03 VARCHAR2 (255) NOT NULL,
    sample_column04 BLOB,
    CONSTRAINT sample_primary_key_pk PRIMARY KEY (sample_column03) )' ;
    execute immediate 'CREATE INDEX sample_index01 ON SAMPLE_TABLE_01 (sample_column01 ASC,sample_column03 ASC)';
    DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE('SAMPLE_TABLE_01' || 'table is created.');
    DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE('SAMPLE_TABLE_01' || 'table already exists.');
    END IF;

    In SQL developer, if SAMPLE_TABLE_01 exists, i get the message 'table already exists' or otherwise. However in SQL PLUS, I receive oracle exception ORA-00955: name is already used by an existing object
    It does not evaluate for IF and does not go in the DBMS_OUTPUT line. Please help.

    Please try ... WHERE UPPER(table_name) = 'SAMPLE_TABLE_01';
