INTERP Function

The INTERP function executes one or more OLAP DML commands and returns the session log in which the commands are executed. It is typically used in applications when the 4K limit on output for the EXECUTE procedure may be too restrictive.

Input to the INTERP function is limited to 4K. For larger input values, refer to the INTERPCLOB function of this package.

This function does not return the output of the DML commands when you have redirected the output by using the OLAP DML OUTFILE command.

You can use the INTERP function as an argument to the PRINTLOG procedure in this package to view the session log. See the example.

Note:

You cannot execute this function from within the OLAP Worksheet. You must execute if in a SQL tool such as SQL*Plus.
