How to insert using Cursor in Oracle

Being a .net technologies guy I never be go on database level. but last night I have to face a small problem . I have to done 50000 record entries in one of table with relation to parent table. I used Pl Sql cursor. You already know much about Cursor they exists both in Oracle and Sql server and even My Sql. Following is a solution of insertion
Using Cusros so I insert 50000  in child table with respect to parent table..


/* Output variables to hold the result of the query: */

a Teacher.teacher_code %TYPE;

/* Cursor declaration: */

SELECT teacher_Code

FROM Teacher



OPEN T1Cursor;


/* Retrieve each row of the result of the above query

into PL/SQL variables: */

FETCH T1Cursor INTO a;

/* If there are no more rows to fetch, exit the loop: */


/* Delete the current tuple: */

/* Insert the reverse tuple: */

INSERT INTO Teacher_ChildTable (Teacher_code,Class_code,Teaching_Mode,Period)    VALUES(a,’0324′,’01’,450);


/* Free cursor used by the query. */

CLOSE T1Cursor;


Have a nice day.
