Oracle PL/SQL Practical

Write a macro containing an anonymous PL/SQL block which uses cursor processing to retrieve rows from the SCOTT.EMP table, one by one, to perform the task set out below:

 each time a ‘CLERK’ is found in a row call a procedure which outputs to the screen the name and office location of that clerk’s manager and indicate whether the manager is on-site or in a different location to the clerk.

Note: The location information can be found in SCOTT.DEPT

The output to SQL*Plus should be ensured in the macro.
