May I use below code in my report AFTER PARAMETER FORM trigger? actually I want to create a temporary table, which will contain user given dates data then I will use this temporary table in my report.

Is my approach is correct? or if you know any other idea then please share.

Create or replace procedure GtempTbl_proc (Date1 Date, Date2 Date)
   stmt varchar2(1000);
   stmt2 varchar2(1000);
    stmt  := 'create global temporary table t1 as select * from ics_sal_sdr1@livedb_vikdis ';
    execute immediate stmt;
    stmt2 := 'create global temporary table t2 as select * from ics_sal_sdr2@livedb_vikdis ';
    execute immediate stmt2;

This is almost certainly the wrong approach. You should be able to use the queries themselves in your report, no need to create tables. Furthermore, the code will run only once: the second time it will error because the tables already exist.

This looks like SQL Server code, where programmers create temporary tables all the time because SQL Server can't do read consistency properly.
