coping with messages 1 2 ORACLE messages 1 3 abnormal conditions 1 3 calling Oracle customer support 1 4

Using Messages

11

Coping with Messages


This section gives you general information and helpful tips about messages. It covers the following topics:

finding information about errors looking up messages

Finding Information about Messages

Messages that may appear when using Oracle Corporation programs are documented in a number of manuals: Oracle Reports messages ORACLE messages Productspecific messages These messages are specific to Oracle Reports and are documented in this book. These messages are detected by ORACLE, and they can appear while you are running nearly any Oracle program. These messages are specific to one product, and are therefore documented in the manuals for that product. For example, you might get an Oracle*Mail message, which is documented in the Oracle*Mail documentation. These messages are specific to one operating system. A range of message numbers has been reserved for each operating system. For example, the range 7500 7999 is for DEC VAX/VMS messages. For information on these messages, see your Developer/2000 Installation Guide.

Systemspecific messages

Looking Up Messages

The prefix of each message tells you where to find information about the message. For example, Oracle Reports messages have the prefix REP. RDBMS messages have the prefix ORA. If you are using Oracle Reports and see a message without a prefix, first check this manual, then refer to your ORACLE7 Server Messages and Codes Manual.. Following the prefix is the message code number. To look up an Oracle Reports message (REP prefix), you can either check this manual or select Help in the message dialog to display an online version of this manual, positioned at the correct message. If the message is not an Oracle Reportsspecific message, look at the message prefix to determine which product/component generated the message. Then look at the message code number to find that specific message description. Messages are listed in order by the code number.

12

Reports Messages and Codes Manual

Message Prefixes

The following table lists the prefixes of messages that you may encounter: Prefix REP ORA DBA EXP IMP LCC ORA PCC PLS RTL SQL*Loader VGS PDE Type of Message Oracle Reports message ORACLE messages (includes PL/SQL messages) SQL*DBA message Export Utility message Import Utility message Parameter file message Generic ORACLE message Precompiler Compiletime message PL/SQL message Precompiler Runtime message SQL*Loader message Oracle internal graphics system Oracle internal PL/SQL Development Environment

ORACLE Messages
When using Oracle Reports, you might get an ORACLE message (i.e., a message prefixed with ORA). For more information, see the ORACLE7 Server Messages and Codes Manual.

Abnormal Conditions
Sometimes you may encounter an error that is known as an abnormal condition. These are errors for which the exact cause is not clear. The following sections describe the probable causes of abnormal conditions and the actions you can take to solve them.

Using Messages

13

Cause

Abnormal conditions may arise from one of the following causes:

Someone has done something that prevented Oracle Reports from completing the requested task. For example, if someone bypassed the user interface and changed data in Oracle Reports tables directly, they might have entered an invalid value in these tables which has prevented Oracle Reports from completing the requested task. A bug in Oracle Reports prevented the requested task from completing.

Action

You should first contact your DBA and/or system administrator to determine if the message was caused by something other than Oracle Reports. If you determine that the message was not the result of user error or a system problem, then you should take the following steps: 1. 2. Write down the message number and its text. Write down the circumstances that lead up to the message. Try to recall the actions you took, the objects involved (if any), and the exact sequence of keys that you pressed prior to the message. Contact Oracle Customer Support. See Calling Oracle Customer Support below for more information.

3.

Calling Oracle Customer Support


Some messages recommend calling Oracle Customer Support to report the problem. When you call Customer Support, please have the following information at hand: 1. 2. The hardware, operating system, and release number of the operating system on which Oracle Reports is running. The complete version number of Oracle Reports including revision number and port release number, if any. For example, V2.0.05 or V2.0.13. All products (with version numbers) in use when the message was displayed (ORACLE V6.0, SQL*Net V2.0, or SQL*Forms V3.0, for example). If you encountered one or more messages, the exact code numbers and message texts, in the order they appeared.

The problem severity, according to the following codes:


1 = Program not usable. Critical impact on operations. 2 = Program usable. Operations severely restricted. 3 = Program usable with limited functions. Not critical to overall operations. 4 = Problem circumvented by customer. Minimal effect, if any, on operations.

6. 7.

A description of the problem, including any unusual conditions. Also, you will be expected to give your:

name companys name companys ORACLE Support ID Number phone number

Oracle Reports Message Descriptions


This section includes the following:

conventions used in this section startup messages Note: GUI Oracle Reports will always attempt to display messages in an alert. If Oracle Reports cannot bring up an alert (e.g., the problem occurred during startup), then the message will be sent to your standard SYSOUT.

Using this Section

Each description contains the message number and text as well as the following: Cause Action Is a description of the possible causes of the error. Is a description of the possible actions you might take to resolve the error.

Using Messages

15

Recognizing Embedded Variables

To help you find and fix errors, Oracle Reports embeds object names, numbers, and character strings in some messages. In this appendix, these embedded variables are represented by terms placed in angle brackets <>. For example, the message:
REP1232: Matrix X_Cross has an invalid source frame.

would appear in this section as:


REP1232 frame. Matrix <matrix name> has an invalid source

Startup Messages

When an error is encountered and its message cannot be obtained from the message file, then Oracle Reports will display one of the following messages:

Error raised but unable to open message file. Still attempting to report error.

After these messages, Oracle Reports displays a hardcoded message. Hardcoded Messages Following is a list of the hardcoded messages:
File not found: <filename> <filename> Error opening file:

ORACLE error number: <ORACLE error number> <ORACLE description of the error> Bad argument in command list. No runfile was specified. Error opening specified terminal description file: <filename> Unable to get message for error <error number> <Additional information: <information>> Argument was: <argument>

There is one other time a hardcoded message will appear. When an error occurs and for some reason the message subsystem does not execute correctly, then the following message will appear:
The error manager is unable to report an error due to recursive failure of the error subsystem. Aborting.

16

Reports Messages and Codes Manual

Action

When you receive a startup message, you should take the following steps: 1. Contact your DBA. The DBA should be able to verify whether the product has been installed correctly. Refer to your Developer/2000 Installation Guide. If the product was not installed correctly, the DBA should correct the problem. If the product has been installed correctly and the error persists, you should contact Oracle Customer Support for assistance. For more information, see Calling Oracle Customer Support on page 1 4.

ERROR: This report does not contain the data table information. A .rep file cannot be generated. This is an abnormal condition. For information, see Abnormal Conditions on page 1 3. There may already be reports with the same names in the Version 2.0 tables. You attempted to migrate one or more reports stored in the database using the same name as a report that already exists in the database. Rename the reports you wish to migrate, or assign them names that are different from existing reports. Moverep Error: No 1.1 report specified to move. You invoked the R25MREP executable but did not specify any Version 1.1 reports to convert to Version 2.5. Reissue the command, remembering to specify the reports to convert. No reports with name <report name> found in database. You specified a report not found in the database. Determine if you are connected to the correct database and specifying the correct name. Reissue the command. A fatal error occurred while creating a new report for <report name>. This is an abnormal condition. Check that your NLS_LANG and ORACLE_HOME environment variables are set to the correct values. (For more information, see your CDE2 Installation Guide. Also see National Language Support in Appendix C of the Reports Reference Manual.) Otherwise, see Abnormal Conditions on page 1 3. Warning: The name <report name> will be truncated to <integer> characters. You attempted to migrate a report, and R25MREP found a report, column, group, or field name that was not unique and must be changed by shortening the name to a valid length. Note that this could possibly generate an invalid name. Change the name in the original SQL*ReportWriter report to less than 25 characters, or edit the converted Oracle Reports report after it is converted.
