Blocks, PL-SQL Programming

Blocks:

The fundamental program unit in the PL/SQL is the block. The PL/SQL block is defined by the keywords BEGIN, DECLARE, EXCEPTION, and END. These keywords partition the block into the declarative section, an executable section, & an exception-handling section. Only the executable section is needed. You can nest the block within the other block wherever you can place an executable statement.
