In order to run queries with PL/SQL (query block with begin/end, loops and other stuff) you need to add "/" at the end of your code or save it as .sql file:

  • SQL plus (or SQL Developer without .sql file)
begin
  dbms_output.put_line('Hello World');
end;
/
  • SQL Developer - open the file

  • Create .sql file and save you code there

  • Open the .sql file with SQL Developer

  • Run it

  • SQL Developer - without opening the file(in case of bigger files)

  • Create .sql file and save the below in it

  • Open new SQL worksheet

  • place your file path : @C:\user\plssqlcode.sql

  • Run it
