Things to try: - Check that the user running the report has execute permissions on any stored SQL procedures called in the report (if any) - Compile the report against the same instance it is being run against.

- You need to be sure to allocate enough space for the Flash Back recovery area, because if you don’t, this may cause problems. - Enabling flashback imposes an overhead on the database, and this could lead to a performance issue, mainly in write-intensive databases. *********************

ORA-00600 is a general error code, which can have many different causes. Without enough information about your environment and what operation you were trying to do, I think it will be very hard to figure out what the problem is.

You could find that out by running the Oracle Universal Installer, and then clicking on the “Installed Products” button. OUI usually gets installed when you install some Oracle product, so I guess you have it on your server.

That sounds strange. Have you connected directly to the Oracle database with the same user configured for the ODBC connection, and run the same query ? The only thing that comes to my mind is the possibility of more than one table with the same name, created on different schemas. You might be querying the [...]

I don’t know of a way to do what you need, and honestly, I don’t think that is possible with Forms 6i (I really hope to be wrong). Some time ago, due to some problems we had with a form, we ended opening it with a text editor like Notepad, and among other things we [...]

One thing to check: Verify the service name you are using to create the link in management studio. It needs to be exactly the same as defined in your tnsnames.ora file.

ORA-000257 is the “archiver stuck” error. If enough space is available, this will not happen… in a perfect world…..

It is probably a configuration issue. Things to check: - You have created an ODBC connection to your MySql database and you have tested it from outside Oracle, and it is working well. - Your Oracle global_names parameter is set to false (init.ora) - You have configured the hetergeneous services. (This consists of creating an [...]

One way could be increasing the size of the repeating frame (in the layout model) up to the size of a complete page, and then copying the field (or text field) that contains the label data the necessary times to fill the new size of the repeating frame. Regards,

You could play with the INSTR function, which returns the position of a specified substring within a string. Usage: instr(<string>,<substring>,<starting_position>,<occurrence>) You can use this function to see the value of a specific element in the PVC_Value, for example, to see the 7th element, the following select should do the trick: <pre>select substr(pvc_value,instr(pvc_value,’;',1,6)+1,instr(pvc_value,’;',1,7)-1-instr(pvc_value,’;',1,6)) from your_table;</pre> and [...]

If you have the Forms Builder installed, you can simply go to HELP -> ABOUT FORM BUILDER. This will show separate version numbers for different components. Look for “Forms [xx bits] version…”.

Sounds like you have created a unique constraint or unique index on the table that didn’t exist on the Oracle database, or you are trying to insert the records a second time. It could also be that the Oracle table was case sensitive, while the SQL Server defaults to case insensitive. If this is the [...]
