Can we create our own exceptions in oracle?

I am having a pl/sql procedure. I am handling exceptions in exception block. There are couple of logical errors which may occur during the process.

So, whenver there is a situation occurs other than oracle exceptions, I want to handle it programatically, and want to pass a reasonable message.

So, I am thinking whether we can create our own exceptions or not?

Is there anyway we can do this?

Error numbers in the range -20000..-20999 are reserved for the user-defined errors. You can easily raise your own error and catch it later as an exception:

--- This code will throw ORA-20010

raise_application_error(-20010, 'Operation failed');
