    Talking

    I have a query with nested DECODE.
    I run the query in SQL.Perfect results.
    Create a Report with the same query AND I do not get all the values.
    Is this because nested DECODE behave different in SQL vs. PL/SQL?
    Any suggestions?

    Thanks'

    Specify

    Did you specify all of the columns before your query where you tell oracle the name,size, and format of your columns?

    I have experienced this also, particularly with very large queries - those queries whose select text is long, not neccesarily a large result set.

    We got around it using views.

    Can you post your queries (both sql/plsql) so that we can have a look ? I don't think there should be any difference.

    Cool

    DONE!
    I believe that because of nested DECODE Developer 2000/Reports behaves different than SQL*PLUS.
    So, I used to_char,to_number in the DECODE.

    But the question still remains why even in Output Report some times the value was displayed and other times not for the same conditions

    Thanks'
