To ignore a null parameter in a stored procedure in Oracle, you can use conditional logic within the stored procedure to check if the parameter is null before using it in any calculations or queries.


Here is an example of how you can ignore a null parameter in an Oracle stored procedure:

 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
11
12
13
14
15
16
17
CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE my_procedure (
    p_parameter1 IN VARCHAR2,
    p_parameter2 IN VARCHAR2
)
IS
BEGIN
    IF p_parameter1 IS NOT NULL THEN
        -- Do something with p_parameter1
        DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE('Parameter 1: ' || p_parameter1);
    END IF;

    IF p_parameter2 IS NOT NULL THEN
        -- Do something with p_parameter2
        DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE('Parameter 2: ' || p_parameter2);
    END IF;
END;
/


In this example, the stored procedure my_procedure takes two parameters p_parameter1 and p_parameter2. The conditional logic checks if each parameter is not null before processing it. If a parameter is null, the corresponding block of code for that parameter will be skipped.


By using this approach, you can effectively ignore null parameters in your Oracle stored procedure.
