    hi,
    I am trying to do some column formating for the following table (egs emp)
    I have a script as

    begin
    col empid a(4);
    col empname a(30);
    col deptno 9999;
    end;

    i am getting the following err
    ERROR at line 2:
    ORA-06550: line 2, column 5:
    PLS-00103: Encountered the symbol "empid" when expecting one of the
    following:
    := . ( @ % ;

    Can I use this script for column formating ,when ever I need it
    or exclucively set it?

    Please advise
    Badrinath

    Hi,

    I don't think you can give these statements inside begin & end. You can simply try without begin & end. Even then, you need to specify

    col empid format a4;
    col empname format a30;
    ......

    Thanks
    Padma
