I am trying yo capture a date from one of the query and assigning it to date variable and wanted to pass the variable in another Query. below is the sql that i gave a try
declare EXTRACTION_DATE date;

  SELECT max(end_date)  into EXTRACTION_DATE from cxadmin.cycle_count_period;  
   SELECT id, start_date, end_date, trunc(end_date) -
      trunc(start_date)  as period, 
TRUNC(TO_DATE(ADD_MONTHS(TO_DATE(EXTRACTION_DATE), -11 )),'MM') as PeriodFirstDate        
  FROM  cxadmin.cycle_count_period where trunc(end_date) -
      trunc(start_date) >= 60 order by start_date asc ;

for security purpose, i masked the table name.
I am getting the below error when i ran the query.

Error at line 1
ORA-06550: line 11, column 4:
PLS-00428: an INTO clause is expected in this SELECT statement
Please let me know what mistake am i doing in here. your reply will be highly appreciated.

The error is:

an INTO clause is expected in this SELECT statement

In addition, using TO_DATE on a DATE variable or expression is an error.
