Explained well. Merge statement in 10g reduces lot of coding effort.

Merge is got way to convert dual functionallity (insert/Update) into one sql statement. Performance wise also this is exceptionally good.

i found in 10g documentation this sentence

Use the MERGE statement to select rows from one or more sources for update or insertion into one or more tables

I would like to user MERGE statement into two tables ( if matched update table1, if not matched insert into table2), however i'm desperate, since i could not find any example on it. As cited above documentation clearly says it is possible.

please have you, any suggestions how to perform such MERGE ?

Very useful addition with DELETE WHERE Clause....
One guestion: delete can be on test1 a
table with WHERE Condition specified as stressed below? Is the following statement correct?
MERGE INTO test1 a
USING all_objects b
ON (a.object_id = b.object_id)
UPDATE SET a.status = b.status
WHERE b.status != 'VALID'

FYI, Merge Statements with bind variabled don't currently work when called over a database link.

to my previous comment: i found out , this is a bug in 10g documentation and is corrected in documentation for 11g. so unfortunatelly it is not possible to performe merge on two target tables.

If you want to make an update to table_1 when matched and an update to table_2 when not matched I think you can use an IF sentence...
I'm gonna try it and let you know
