Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hi,

Do you mean PRAGMA EXCEPTION_INIT?

It’s a way of associating names with user-defined exceptions, so you that exception handlers can refer to them by name. Here’s an example from the Database Administrator’s Guide:
<pre>
DECLARE
null_salary EXCEPTION;
PRAGMA EXCEPTION_INIT(null_salary, -20101);
BEGIN

RAISE_APPLICATION_ERROR(-20101, ‘salary is missing’);

EXCEPTION
WHEN null_salary THEN

END;
</pre>
