Function to fetch Organization Info

Posted by shameemakhtar on June 29, 2010



CREATE OR REPLACE function ztd_get_org_info_fn 
(
    p_org_id in number, 
    p_choice in varchar2
)
return varchar2
is
    p_org_name varchar2(250);
    p_short_code varchar2(10);
begin

    select name
    into p_org_name
    from hr_all_organization_units
    where organization_id = p_org_id;
    
    select organization_code
    into p_short_code
    from mtl_parameters
    where master_organization_id = '968'
    and organization_id = p_org_id;
    
    case 
        when upper(p_choice) not in ('NAME', 'DESC') then
            return 'ORA-user error: Wrong Parameter';
        when p_choice = 'NAME' then
            return p_org_name;
        when p_choice = 'CODE' then
            return p_short_code;
        else 
            return null;
    end case;
    
exception 
when no_data_found then
    return null;
when others then
    return nvl(sqlerrm, null);
end;
/

The above function takes in two parameters, namely organization_id and a parameter for choice. Based on the choice, the function will return either the organization name or the organization short code from two different select statements.

In case no data is found, it will return null, and in case of error, it will return the error message.

Note the following:
a. I am hard-coding the Master Organization Id in this case since I am using writing this script for one of the Operating Units in a multi-Org structure. Since I can have only one Master Organization per Operating Unit, I have hard-coded this value to restrict my Organizations and to keep the code simple.

Tables used:
hr_all_organization_units
mtl_parameters

Use the following to test your function:

select ztd_get_org_info_fn('967', 'CODE')
from dual;

Function to fetch Employee information

Posted by shameemakhtar on June 29, 2010



CREATE OR REPLACE function ztd_get_employee_info_fn 
(
    p_emp_id in varchar2,
    p_choice in varchar2
)
return varchar2
is
    p_emp_num varchar2(250);
    p_emp_name varchar2(250);
    p_emp_email varchar2(250);
begin

    select employee_number, 
           full_name, 
           email_address
    into p_emp_num,
         p_emp_name,
         p_emp_email
    from per_people_f
    where person_id = p_emp_id;
    
    case
        when upper(p_choice) not in ('NUM', 'NAME', 'EMAIL') then
            return 'ORA-user error: Wrong Parameter';
        when upper(p_choice) = 'NUM' then
            return p_emp_num;
        when upper(p_choice) = 'NAME' then
            return p_emp_name;
        when upper(p_choice) = 'EMAIL' then
            return p_emp_email;            
    end case;
    
exception 
when no_data_found then
    return null;
when others then
    return nvl(sqlerrm, null);
end;
/
commit;

The above function takes in two parameters, namely employee_id and a parameter for choice. Based on the choice, the function will return either the employee number, his full name or his email address.

In case no data is found, it will return null, and in case of error, it will return the error message.

Note the following:
a. The additional parameter ‘p_choice’ allows me the flexibility of using the same function to return different columns from the same select statement as required. You could have added more choices to enable you to return other fields. This gives me two advantage: I do not need to build a separate function for each and it simplifies my joins in eventual select statements as I have one table less to join.
b. Instead of making p_choice a number, I have made it a character. You can argue that I could have put remarks besides each number, but as preferred varchar2 as this makes its usage more intuitive.
c. I used the standard function ‘upper’ to further allows for any combination of cases when passing parameter p_choice.
d. Before checking for actual cases, I check whether there is an error in entering parameters
e. In case of no data found, I am returning null instead of the error code. I am returning the error messages in case of other errors. You could have opted otherwise.

I am using this structure and logic to build a series of simple functions that will allow me simplifies my eventual queries in the future.

Table Used:
per_people_f (You can use per_people_x as well).

You can check your function as follows:

select ztd_get_employee_info_fn(4018, 'NUM')
from dual;

Function to fetch User Details

Posted by shameemakhtar on June 29, 2010


create or replace function ztd_get_user_fn
(
p_user_id in varchar2
)
return varchar2
is
p_user_name varchar2(100);
begin
select user_name
into p_user_name
from fnd_user
where user_id = p_user_id;
return p_user_name;

exception
when others then
return nvl(sqlerrm, null);
end;

commit;

This function will return the username when you pass in the user_id. In case no data is found or any other error is encountered, you will receive the appropriate error code.

Tables used:
fnd_user

You can use the following select statement to test your function:

select ztd_get_user_fn(14061)
from dual;
