Example of PL/SQL EXIT Loop

After the execution of the above code, you will get the following result:

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
10

Note: You must follow these steps while using PL/SQL Exit Loop.

  • Initialize a variable before the loop body
  • Increment the variable in the loop.
  • You should use EXIT WHEN statement to exit from the Loop. Otherwise the EXIT statement without WHEN condition, the statements in the Loop is executed only once.
