ORA-04063 table/view Has Errors Tips

Oracle Tips by Burleson Consulting

Updated March 17, 2011
 

Question:  I am running a Java program that calls a stored procedure and I get this error:

 ORA-04063: view "AR.GPE" has errors  

How to I see the specific error from the ORA-04063 error?

Answer:  You use the oerr utility to see what to do with the ORA-04063 error:

 ORA-04063:  table/view has errors  

Cause:  Attempt to execute a stored procedure or use a view that has errors.  For stored procedures, the problem could be syntax errors or references to other, non-existent procedures.    For views,  the problem could be a reference in the view's defining query to a non-existent table.  Can also be a table which has references to non-existent or inaccessible types.  

Action: Fix the errors and/or create referenced objects as necessary.

You need to execute the PL/SQL independently (within SQL*Plus) and then use the show errors command to see the exact error message.

This will enhance the ORA-04063 and show you the exact line of PL/SQL and reason for the error.

*****************************************************************************

In some cases, the ORA-04063 error is caused when a PL/SQL procedure of package becomes invalid after a change to a subordinate procedure or a schema (table) change.

     ORA-04063: package body "xxx" has errors

To resolve this ORA-04063, I would start by trying to re-compile the package and see what the error is using:

     ALTER PROCEDURE | FUNCTION|  PACKAGE [<schema>.] <name> COMPILE  [BODY]

I use a script to recompile PL/SQL packages.  Because compiling PL/SQL involves getting all PL/SQL within other PL/SQL procedures, you may need to run this several times to successfully compile all of the PL/SQL:

set heading off;
set feedback off;
set echo off;
Set lines 999;

Spool run_invalid.sql

select
'ALTER ' || OBJECT_TYPE || ' ' ||
OWNER || '.' || OBJECT_NAME || ' COMPILE;'
from
dba_objects
where
status = 'INVALID'
and
object_type in ('PACKAGE','FUNCTION','PROCEDURE')
;

spool off;

set heading on;
set feedback on;
set echo on;

@run_invalid.sql
