Count Occurrence of a Character in a String

I had the need to count an occurrence of a specific character in a string and after tossing some ideas back and forth between a couple of my colleges, we came up with the below two SQLs. You pass a string and identify the character you are looking to count its occurrence. In both SQLs below, I'm trying to count how many times does ">>" exists in string "This is>>a string>>to look into>>". The answer of course is 3 times.

SQL Option 1:

 FROM (SELECT SUBSTR ('This is>>a string>>to look into>>', ROWNUM, 2 ) s,
              ROWNUM pos

Get Edit Tables Behind a Record Fields

A straight forward SQL to get edit tables behind field(s) for a specific record. The SQL execludes any edit tables that start with "%" as those are dynamic edit tables with values populated by PeopleCode at run time and thus will not be of a good use in this query.

 WHERE R.RECNAME = :RecordName
   AND SUBSTR(R.EDITTABLE,1,1) <> '%'  
   AND R.EDITTABLE <> ' '
