A procedure can not create a user?

8
I am reading and thinking that a user (or any object) cannot be created within a procedure. Is that correct? I am new to
PL/ SQL, not programming, but do apologize.
I have a StdtTable (in SYS) with 3 columns: account, password, rowid.
I just want to read each row and create a user. This is what I have, does anyone have any idea's? The code is sloppy as I am stuck on the create. :-( Thank you. Oh, I am running this is SQLDeveloper.

CREATE OR REPLACE
PROCEDURE makeStudents

AS
-- declare all variables!

iReturnCode int:=0;
iNextRowId int:=0;
iCurrentRowId int:=0;
iLoopControl int :=13;
iRowId INT :=0;
vhELLO VARCHAR2 (30 CHAR) := 'HELLO';
vchACCOUNName varchar2(7):='';
vchPasswordNmbr varchar2(9):='';


BEGIN

SELECT iRowId into iNextRowId FROM SYS.STDTable;

-- Retrieve the first row
SELECT iRowId, STDAccount, STDPASSWORD INTO iCurrentRowId, vchACCOUNName,vchPasswordNmbr
FROM SYS.STDTABLE WHERE iRowId = iNextRowId;
/* EXCEPTION
WHEN NO_DATA_FOUND THEN
RETURN;*/
-- start the main processing loop.

WHILE iLoopControl > iNextRowId
LOOP
BEGIN

CREATE USER vchACCOUNName
IDENTIFIED BY vchPasswordNmbr
DEFAULT TABLESPACE STUDENTTABLESPACE
QUOTA 10M ON example
QUOTA 10M ON system;

-- processing.

SELECT iRowId into iNextRowId
FROM SYS.STDTable
WHERE iRowId > iCurrentRowId;

SELECT iRowId, STDAccount, STDPASSWORD INTO iCurrentRowId, vchACCOUNName,vchPasswordNmbr
FROM SYS.STDTABLE WHERE iRowId = iNextRowId;

/* EXCEPTION
WHEN NO_DATA_FOUND THEN
RETURN;*/

end;--begin in while
end loop;--in while
end;--procedure

You can execute any DDL commands from with a procedure by using EXECUTE IMMEDIATE .

Well, all worked fine. Said procedure successfully completed. But no users were created. AM I missing something???

I am very confused. I ran the script below and it worked and was completed. But where are the users it was supposed to create? Am I to do something in addition to running the procedure? I am so sorry if this is a baby question.
Thank you
Brig

Hi, Yes I am doing this under SYS. Someone told me I shouldn't use SYS and create tables there. Should I use system?
I also think my code is just wrong. I have changed it many times. I think I need to start over, thinking clearly. Then I will repost if it doesn't work.

Thank you so much for listening and helping :-)
