You can use assignment statements to assign values to variables. An assignment statement contains an assignment operator ":=", which takes the value specified on the right to the variable on left. The script below show you some examples of assignment statements:

PROCEDURE proc_var_2 AS
  is_done BOOLEAN;
  counter NUMBER := 0;
  message VARCHAR2(80); 
  is_done := FASLE;
  counter := counter + 1;
  message := 'Hello world!';
