Arrays in WHERE Clauses (Doc ID 1007755.6)

Last updated on JULY 05, 2017

Applies to:

Precompilers - Version: 8.0.6.0 to 11.2.0.1 - Release: 8.0.6 to 11.2
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

This bulletin discusses the use of host arrays in WHERE clauses. A SQL statement containing array variables of size n works inside Oracle like the same SQL statement executed n times with n different scalar variables (the individual array elements). The precompiler issues the error "PCC-S-0055:

Array not allowed as bind variable" only when such usage may result in an ambiguous condition.
