Hi , 

in oracle 10 g , the below query results in alphabetical order , there is no order by caluse. but when i am running the same query in oracle 11g , it gives me in random order. what is the problem here?

select distinct  Report_137__1_ . COUNTRY_NM   COUNTRY_NM  from (select distinct  v . CTMS_TRIAL_ALIAS_CODE ,  v . CLINICAL_TRIAL_ID ,  c . GEO_BOUNDARY_ID ,  c . COUNTRY_NM ,  c . CANCEL_INDC ,  c . STOP_INDC  from  CTMS_CLINICAL_TRIAL_ID_V   v ,  TRIAL_COUNTRY_V   c  where  v . CLINICAL_TRIAL_ID = c . CLINICAL_TRIAL_ID )  Report_137__1_

 

above is a  simple select statement. Thanks much.

The problem is simple: The query does not have an ORDER BY clause.

If you want Oracle to guarantee a specific order of a result set *every time you run a query* you have to use an ORDER BY.

But does this means in 10g we do not need to mention order by clause and still we get the result in alphabetical order i.e. ascending order.i understand that we need to mention order by clause to get the result in asc/desc order.

but why here in 10g i am getting the result in asc order without mentioning the order by clause and in 11g m not.

does 10g ,11g have diff in sorting the result set?

 

This means that the query's optimizer plan in 11g is not the same as 10g.

I suggest you read this blog post by Tom Kyte: http://tkyte.blogspot.com/2005/08/order-in-court.html

Thanks a lot , this does help. hope i would be able to make business user understand this ;)
