Hey Moe! It woiks! Nyuk Nyuk Nyuk.

In case you are wondering, here is what I was working on. Without the hint,
I get all 'YEEEEEHAAAA'. With the hint, life is good.  If there are any of
you who are dealing with Sardines Oxley stuff -- you know, like what credit
card numbers you shove into a test and/or development database -- this might
be of use to you. And the YEEEEHAAAA in the exceptions part should actually
be p_corigid too (I think). I'm still debating about what to do about the
when others part. (And the dummy numbers have been changed to protect the


create or replace function doink(p_corigid in varchar2) return varchar2 as

 v_fop varchar2(10);
 BUM_NUMBER exception;
 pragma exception_init(BUM_NUMBER, -1722);


 select /*+ NO_MERGE(Z) NO_PUSH_PRED(Z) PUSH_SUBQ(Z) */ distinct
nbr_cc_fop_name into v_fop from
   (select nbr_cc_fop_name, nbr_cc_fop_high, nbr_cc_fop_low
 from nbr_cc where nbr_cc_fop_name in ('AX','MC','VI','DS')) Z
   where to_number(trim(substr(p_corigid,1,20))) between
   and to_number(trim(nbr_cc_no_high));

 case v_fop
   when 'AX' then return '123412341234123   '||SUBSTR(p_corigid,21);
   when 'MC' then return '1234123412341234   '||SUBSTR(p_corigid,21);
   when 'VI' then return '2345234523452345   '||SUBSTR(p_corigid,21);
   when 'DS' then return '3456345634563456   '||SUBSTR(p_corigid,21);
 end case;

 when no_data_found
   then return p_corigid;
   then return 'YEEHAAAAAAAAA';
 when others
   then return p_corigid;
