IDE: SQL Developer


1.Write a script that creates a cursor consisting of vendor_name, invoice_number, and balance_due for each invoice with a balance due that’s greater than or equal to $5,000. The rows in this cursor should be sorted in descending sequence by balance due. Then, for each invoice, display the balance due, invoice number, and vendor name so it looks something like this:


$19,351.18                P-0608               Malloy Lithographing Inc


2. Enhance your solution to exercise 3 so it shows the invoice data in three groups based on the balance due amounts with these headings:


$20,000 or More
$10,000 to $20,000
$5,000 to $10,000

Each group should have a heading followed by the data for the invoices that fall into that group. Also, the groups should be separated by one blank line.


3. Enhance your solution to exercise 3 so it uses a substitution variable to set a bind variable that you use to determine what the minimum balance due should be for the invoices that the SELECT statement is going to retrieve. You should also use this bind variable to display a heading like this before the list of invoices:


Invoice amounts greater than or equal to $2,000

where 2,000 is the value of the bind variable.


4. Create a trigger named invoices_before_update_payment for the Invoices table that raises an application error whenever the payment total plus the credit total becomes larger than the invoice total in a row. Then, test this trigger with an appropriate UPDATE statement. (Note that you could code a check constraint to accomplish the same task.)


5. Create a trigger named invoices_after_update_payment for the Invoices table that displays the vendor name, invoice number, and payment total in the output window whenever the payment total is increased. Then, test this trigger with an appropriate UPDATE statement. (A trigger like this could be modified so it stores the data in an audit table.)

Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. It would be my pleasure to assist you with this.

I numbers 2 and 3, it states "Enhance your solution to exercise 3".

Is #1 in your list "exercise 3"?

Thank you
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

that is correct. my teacher told us yesterday he made a mistake. Question # XXXXX is exercise 3.

Thank you,

I will contact you once this is complete.
Hello again!

You can download the completed work here:

In the SQL files are all 5 questions, plus the two queries to test questions #4 and #5.

If you are going to run them, make certain you do it one at a time. Some of them will not function if you attempt to run everything at once.

Keep in mind that the test query for #4 is SUPPOSED to throw an error. That's the entire point of it. The error says "Bad Record Amounts". That is a custom error (which was the point of #4).

Let me know if you have any questions. I'm here to help.
