Database search

Soms moet je in een Oracle database een numerieke of alfanumerieke waarde zoeken. Ik heb een PL/SQL script gebouwd om dat in een Oracle database te doen.

Je kunt met dit script één database-schema per keer doorzoeken. Het script houdt rekening met het verschil tussen numerieke en alfanumerieke waarden, dus als een varchar2 kolom een numerieke waarde bevat, heb je pech. Dit zal natuurlijk nooit gebeuren bij een goed doordacht datamodel 😉 .

Je kunt het script downloaden als zip bestand: Database search script

Dit is het script:

-- ----------------------------------------------------------
-- OS : any
-- RDBMS : Oracle 9i+
-- Created by : Rene Zijlstra
-- Created on : 2004/11/29
-- Usage : Searh a string in all tables
-- Version : 1.1
-- File : search.sql
-- ----------------------------------------------------------
-- Parameters :
-- none, the input paramaters are prompted for
-- ----------------------------------------------------------
-- Remarks:
-- You will be prompted for database schema and string to search
-- Added dbms_application_info, so progress can be viewed in v$session
-- ----------------------------------------------------------
-- Rev User revision date comment
-- --- ------------- ------------- -------------------
-- 0.1 Rene Zijlstra 2004/11/09 creation
-- 1.0 Rene Zijlstra 2006/01/04 Modified and tuned (totally rewritten)
-- 1.1 Rene Zijlstra 2008/04/06 Removed views from cursor + added dbms_application_info
-- 1.2 Rene Zijlstra 2009/12/02 Added support for lowercase tables an columns (Why do people want that!?)
