I need to make a particular query on a DB via SQLPLUS.

I have a table structured this way:

This table is populated every day by a procedure that does a count on 2 other tables that should be identical (they are the master table and its snapshot on a daily Fast Refresh).
A line is written by the procedure in the first table with name of the counted table (NAME) value of first count (VALUE1) value of second count (VALUE2) and DATE.

I need to find a query that allows me to identify all those tables that have not been identical for the past 5/7 days. I can't do it by hand because everyday we have a refresh of over 20K tables.

So to be extra clear I'll do a couple of examples:


TabA and SnapA have not been identical for the past 5 days
10 vs 9
12 vs 10
15 vs 14
23 vs 20
38 vs 29

in this case I need to see this table on the query.

TabB and SnapB have not been identical for the past 5 days apart from day 2

10 vs 9
12 vs 12
15 vs 14
23 vs 20
38 vs 29

I don't need this data because I need to be sure that the table and the snapshot are not aligned for at least 5 consecutive days.

I hope my problem is clear. I'm not sure there is a way to solve it easily.

Any help well be GREATLY appreciated.

I have found this query:

select NAME, count(NAME) from USER.TABLE where
(to_char(DATE, 'dd/mm/yyyy') > to_char(sysdate - 7,'dd/mm/yyyy') and VALUE1<>VALUE2)
group by NAME order by NAME;

It gives me a good result. But I need to get only the Count value that is > 7 and not all of them. So to pinpoint directly the tables with issues.

Any help on how to put a limitation in the query above so to see only the counts > of 7?

Thanks again!
