15 ORA-19999 to ORA-24279

ORA-19999: skip_row procedure was called
Cause: The skip_row procedure was called which raises this error
Action: Skip_row should only be called within a trigger or a procedure called by a trigger.
ORA-20000: string
Cause: The stored procedure 'raise_application_error' was called which causes this error to be generated.
Action: Correct the problem as described in the error message or contact the application administrator or DBA for more information.
ORA-21300: objects option not installed
Cause: The objects option is not installed at this site. object types and other object features are, therefore, unavailable.
Action: Install the objects option. The objects option is not part of the Oracle Server product and must be purchased separately. Contact an Oracle sales representative if the objects option needs to be purchased.
ORA-21301: not initialized in object mode
Cause: This function requires the OCI process to be initialized in object mode.
Action: Specify OCI_OBJECT mode when calling OCIInitialize().
ORA-21500: internal error code, arguments: [string], [string], [string], [string], [string], [string], [string], [string]
Cause: This is the generic error number for the OCI environment (client-side) internal errors. This indicates that the OCI environment has encountered an exceptional condition.
Action: Report as a bug - the first argument is the internal error number.
ORA-21501: program could not allocate memory
Cause: The operating system has run out of memory.
Action: Take action to make more memory available to the program.
ORA-21503: program terminated by fatal error
Cause: A program is in an unrecoverable error state.
Action: Report as a bug.
ORA-21520: database server driver not installed
Cause: User attempted to access a database server through an object-mode OCI environment but the necessary driver for supporting such access to the database server is not installed or linked in.
Action: Check if the driver corresponding to the database server has been installed/linked in and entered in the server driver table.
ORA-21521: exceeded maximum number of connections in OCI (object mode only)
Cause: User exceeded the maximum number of connections (255) that can be supported by an OCI environment in object mode.
Action: Close some of existing and unused connections before opening more connections.
ORA-21522: attempted to use an invalid connection in OCI (object mode only)
Cause: User attempted to use an invalid connection or a connection that has been terminated in an OCI environment (object mode), or user attempted to dereference a REF obtained from a connection which has been terminated.
Action: Ensure that the connection exists and is still valid.
ORA-21523: functionality not supported by the server (object mode only)
Cause: User attempted to use a functionality that the server does not support.
Action: Upgrade the server
ORA-21524: object type mismatch
Cause: The object type of the object is different from what is specified.
Action: Check the type of the object and correct it.
ORA-21525: attribute number or (collection element at index) string violated its constraints
Cause: Attribute value or collection element value violated its constraint.
Action: Change the value of the attribute or collection element such that it meets its constraints. The constraints are specified as part of the attribute or collection element's schema information.
ORA-21526: initialization failed
Cause: The initialization sequence failed. This can happen, for example, if an environment variable such as NLS_DATE_FORMAT is set to an invalid value.
Action: Check that all NLS environment variables are well-formed.
ORA-21527: internal OMS driver error
Cause: A process has encountered an exceptional condition. This is the generic internal error number for Oracle object management services exceptions.
Action: Report this as a bug to Oracle Support Services.
ORA-21560: argument string is null, invalid, or out of range
Cause: The argument is expecting a non-null, valid value but the argument value passed in is null, invalid, or out of range. Examples include when the LOB/FILE positional or size argument has a value outside the range 1 through (4GB - 1), or when an invalid open mode is used to open a file, etc.
Action: Check your program and correct the caller of the routine to not pass a null, invalid or out-of-range argument value.
ORA-21561: OID generation failed
Cause: The handles passed in may not be valid
Action: Check the validity of the env, svc handles
ORA-21600: path expression too long
Cause: The path expression that is supplied by the user is too long. The path expression is used to specify the position of an attribute in an object. This error occurs when one of the intermediate elements in the path expression refers to an attribute of a built-in type. Thus, the OCI function cannot proceed on to process the rest of the elements in the path expression.
Action: User should pass in the correct path expression to locate the attribute.
ORA-21601: attribute is not an object
Cause: The user attempts to perform an operation (that is valid only for an object) to an attribute of a built-in type. An example of such an illegal operation is to dynamically set a null structure to an attribute of a built-in type.
Action: User should avoid performing such operation to an attribute of built-in type.
ORA-21602: operation does not support the specified typecode
Cause: The user attempts to perform an operation that does not support the specified typecode.
Action: User should use the range of valid typecodes that are supported by this operation.

Cause: Trying to get a property which applies only to persistent objects.
Action: User should check the lifetime and only get this property for persistent objects.
ORA-21605: property [string] is not a property of value instances
Cause: Trying to get a property which applies only to persistent and transient objects.
Action: User should check the lifetime and only get this property for persistent and transient objects.
ORA-21606: can not free this object
Cause: Trying to free an object that is persistent and dirty and the OCI_OBJECTFREE_FORCE flag is not specified.
Action: Either flush the persistent object or set the flag to OCI_OBJECTFREE_FORCE

Cause: Attempt to use an invalid key length.
Action: Key length is invalid and valid range is 0 to 64
ORA-21612: key is already being used
Cause: Attempt to use a key that is already used.
Action: Use a new key that is not yet being used.
ORA-21613: key does not exist
Cause: Attempt to use a non-existent key
Action: Use a key that already exists.
ORA-21614: constraint violation for attribute number [string]
Cause: Constraints on the attribute were violated
Action: Correct the value (of the attribute) so that it satisfies constraints
ORA-21615: copy of an OTS (named or simple) instance failed
Cause: see following message
Action: Check that no attribute value violates constraints.
ORA-21700: object does not exist or is marked for delete
Cause: User attempted to perform an inappropriate operation to an object that is non-existent or marked for delete. Operations such as pinning, deleting and updating cannot be applied to an object that is non-existent or marked for delete.
Action: User needs to re-initialize the reference to reference an existent object or the user needs to unmark the object.
ORA-21701: attempt to flush objects to different servers
Cause: User attempted to flush objects to different servers in one function call. These objects are obtained by calling a callback functions provided by the program.
Action: User should avoid performing such operation.
ORA-21702: object is not instantiated or has been de-instantiated in cache
Cause: User attempted to perform an inappropriate operation to a transient object that is not instantiated in the object cache. Operations that cannot be applied to a not-instantiated transient object include deleting or pinning such an object.
Action: User should check their code to see if they are performing such an operation without instantiating the object first, or performing such an operation after the allocation duration of the object has expired.
ORA-21703: cannot flush an object that is not modified
Cause: See the error message.
Action: The object should not be flushed.
ORA-21704: cannot terminate cache or connection without flushing first
Cause: See the error message.

Action: User needs to establish the service context.
ORA-21706: duration does not exist or is invalid
Cause: The duration number that is supplied by the user is not valid.
Action: User needs to establish the duration or use a correct predefined duration.
ORA-21707: pin duration is longer than allocation duration
Cause: The pin duration supplied by the user is longer than the allocation duration. This affects operations such as pinning and setting default parameters.
Action: User should use a shorter pin duration or use the null duration.
ORA-21708: inappropriate operation on a transient object
Cause: User attempted to perform an inappropriate operation on a transient object. Operations that cannot be applied to a transient object include flushing and locking.
Action: User should avoid performing such operation on a transient object.
ORA-21709: cannot refresh an object that has been modified
Cause: User attempted to refresh an object that has been marked for delete, update or insert (new).
Action: User should unmark the object before refreshing it.
ORA-21710: argument is expecting a valid memory address of an object
Cause: The object memory address that is supplied by the user is invalid. The user may have passed in a bad memory address to a function that is expecting a valid memory address of an object.
Action: User should pass in a valid memory address of an object to the function.
ORA-21779: duration not active
Cause: User is trying to use a duration that has been terminated.
Action: User should avoid performing such operation.
ORA-21780: Maximum number of object durations exceeded.
Cause: This typically happens if there is infinite recursion in the PL/SQL function that is being executed.
Action: User should alter the recursion condition in order to prevent infinite recursion.
ORA-22053: overflow error
Cause: This operation's result is above the range of Oracle number.
Action: Decrease the input value(s) so that the result is in the range of Oracle number.
ORA-22054: underflow error
Cause: This operation's result is below the range of Oracle number.
Action: Increase the input value(s) so that the result is in the range of Oracle number.
ORA-22055: unknown sign flag value [string]
Cause: Signed flag used is not OCI_NUMBER_SIGNED or OCI_NUMBER_UNSIGNED.
Action: Use either OCI_NUMBER_SIGNED or OCI_NUMBER_UNSIGNED as sign flag.
ORA-22056: value [string] is divided by zero
Cause: Given value is divied by zero.
Action: Modify divisor value to be non-zero.
ORA-22057: bad integer length [string]
Cause: The length of the integer (ie number of bytes) to be converted to or from an Oracle number is invalid.
Action: Use integer length 1, 2, 4 or 8 bytes only.
ORA-22059: buffer size [string] is too small - [string] is needed
Cause: The buffer to hold the resulting text string is too small.
Action: Provide a buffer of the required size.
ORA-22060: argument [string] is an invalid or uninitialized number
Cause: An invalid or uninitialized number is passed in.
Action: Use a valid number. To initialize number call OCINumberSetZero().
ORA-22061: invalid format text [string]

Cause: Collection element at the given index does not exist.
Action: Specify the index of an element which exists.
ORA-22161: type code [string] is not valid
Cause: Given type code is not valid.
Action: Use one of the typecodes enumerated in OCITypeCode.
ORA-22162: element at index [string] has been previously deleted
Cause: Trying to delete a non-existent collection element.
Action: Check for the existence of the element prior to calling this function.
ORA-22163: left hand and right hand side collections are not of same type
Cause: Left hand and right side collections are not of same type.
Action: Ensure that the same collection type is passed for both left hand and right hand side of this function.
ORA-22164: delete element operation is not allowed for variable-length array
Cause: Trying to delete an element of a variable-length array.
Action: Ensure that the collection is not a variable-length array prior to calling this function.
ORA-22165: given index [string] must be in the range of [string] to [string]
Cause: Given index is not in the required range.
Action: Ensure that the given index is in the required range.
ORA-22166: collection is empty

Cause: Given trim size is greater than the current collection size.
Action: Ensure that the given size is less than or equal to the collection size prior to calling this function.
ORA-22275: invalid LOB locator specified
Cause: There are several causes: (1) the LOB locator was never initialized; (2) the locator is for a BFILE and the routine expects a BLOB/CLOB/NCLOB locator; (3) the locator is for a BLOB/CLOB/NCLOB and the routine expects a BFILE locator; (4) trying to update the LOB in a trigger body -- LOBs in trigger bodies are read only; (5) the locator is for a BFILE/BLOB and the routine expects a CLOB/NCLOB locator; (6) the locator is for a CLOB/NCLOB and the routine expects a BFILE/BLOB locator;
Action: For (1), initialize the LOB locator by selecting into the locator variable or by setting the LOB locator to empty. For (2),(3), (5) and (6)pass the correct type of locator into the routine. For (4), remove the trigger body code that updates the LOB value.
ORA-22276: invalid locator for LOB buffering
Cause: There are several causes: (1) the locator was never enabled for buffering (2) it is not an updated locator but is being used for a write/flush operation
Action: For (1) enable the locator for buffering; (2) ensure that only an updated locator is used for a LOB update operation
ORA-22277: cannot use two different locators to modify the same LOB
Cause: LOB buffering is enabled and an attempt was made to modify the LOB using two different LOB locators.
Action: When using LOB buffering, modify the LOB through one LOB locator only.
ORA-22278: must update the LOB only through the LOB buffers
Cause: LOB buffering is enabled for this LOB and there are buffers for this LOB in the buffer pool. Thus, updating the LOB through means other than the LOB buffers is not allowed.
Action: Update the LOB through the LOB buffers using the locator that has LOB buffering enabled. If this operation is required, buffers associated with this LOB should either be flushed as necessary or buffering should be disabled. Once this is done, reissue the command.
ORA-22279: cannot perform operation with LOB buffering enabled
Cause: The operation attempted is not allowed when LOB buffering is enabled.
Action: If the operation is required, LOB buffering should not be used. In this case, flush buffers associated with the input LOB locator as necessary, disable buffering on the input LOB locator and reissue the command.
ORA-22280: no more buffers available for operation
Cause: There are two causes: (1) All buffers in the buffer pool have been used up by previous operations (2) Attempt to flush a LOB without any previous buffered update operations.
Action: For (1), flush the LOB(s) through the locator that is being used to update the LOB. For (2), write to the LOB through a locator enabled for buffering before attempting to flush buffers.
ORA-22281: cannot perform operation with an updated locator
Cause: The input locator has buffering enabled and was used to update the LOB value through the LOB buffering subsystem. The modified buffer has not been flushed since the write that was performed by the the input locator; thus, the input locator is considered an updated locator. Updated locators cannot be the source of a copy operation. Only one locator per LOB may be used to modify the LOB value through the LOB buffering subsystem.
Action: Depending on whether the modifications made through the input locator to the LOB buffering subsystem should be written to the server, either flush the buffer to write the modifications, or, disable buffering on the locator to discard the modifications. Then, reissue the command.
ORA-22282: non-contiguous append to a buffering enabled LOB not allowed
Cause: The buffered write operation has an input offset value more than one byte or character past the end of the LOB.
Action: Specify an input offset value which is exactly one character or byte greater than the length of the LOB that you are attempting to update through a buffered write operation.
ORA-22283: filename contains characters that refer to parent directory
Cause: Filename contains a path "../" which references a parent directory
Action: Ensure that the filename does not contain characters which reference a parent directory.
ORA-22285: non-existent directory or file for string operation
Cause: Attempted to access a directory that does not exist, or attempted to access a file in a directory that does not exist.
Action: Ensure that a system object corresponding to the specified directory exists in the database dictionary, or make sure the name is correct.
ORA-22286: insufficient privileges on file or directory to perform string operation
Cause: The user does not have the necessary access privileges on the directory alias and/or the file for the operation.
Action: Ask the database/system administrator to grant the required privileges on the directory alias and/or the file.
ORA-22287: invalid or modified directory occurred during string operation
Cause: The directory alias used for the current operation is not valid if being accessed for the first time, or has been modified by the DBA since the last access.
Action: If you are accessing this directory for the first time, provide a valid directory name. If you have been already successful in opening a file under this directory before this error occured, then close the file and retry the operation with a valid directory alias as modified by your DBA. Oracle recommends that directories should be modified only during quiescent periods.
ORA-22288: file or LOB operation string failed string
Cause: The operation attempted on the file or LOB failed.
Action: See the next error message in the error stack for more detailed information. Also, verify that the file or LOB exists and that the necessary privileges are set for the specified operation. If the error still persists, report the error to the DBA.
ORA-22289: cannot perform string operation on an unopened file or LOB
Cause: The file or LOB is not open for the required operation to be performed.
Action: Precede the current operation with a successful open operation on the file or LOB.
ORA-22290: operation would exceed the maximum number of opened files or LOBs
Cause: The number of open files or LOBs has reached the maximum limit.
Action: Close some of the opened files or LOBs and retry the operation.
ORA-22291: Open LOBs exist at transaction commit time
Cause: An attempt was made to commit a transaction with open LOBs at transaction commit time.
Action: Close the LOBs before committing the transaction.
ORA-22292: Cannot open a LOB in read-write mode without a transaction
Cause: An attempt was made to open a LOB in read-write mode before a transaction was started.
Action: Start a transaction before opening the LOB in read-write mode. Ways to start a transaction include issuing a SQL DML or SELECT FOR UPDATE command. Opening hte LOB in read-only mode does not require a transaction.
ORA-22293: LOB already opened in the same transaction
Cause: An attempt was made to open a LOB that already is open in this transaction.
Action: Close the LOB before attempting to re-open it.
ORA-22294: cannot update a LOB opened in read-only mode
Cause: An attempt was made to write to or update a LOB opened in read-only mode.
Action: Close the LOB and re-open it in read-write mode before attempting to write to or update the LOB.
ORA-22295: cannot bind more than 4000 bytes data to LOB and LONG columns in 1 statement
Cause: An attempt was made to bind data more than 4000 bytes of data to both LOB and LONG columns in the same insert or update statement. You can bind more than 4000 bytes of data to either a LONG column or one or more LOB columns but not both.
Action: Bind more than 4000 bytes of data to either the LONG column or one or more LOB columns but not both.
ORA-22296: invalid ALTER TABLE option for conversion of LONG datatype to LOB
Cause: An attempt was made to specify ALTER TABLE options which are disallowed during conversion of LONG datatype to LOB. The only ALTER TABLE options allowed during conversion of LONG datatype to LOB are the default clause and LOB storage clause for the column being converted to LOB.
Action: Remove the disallowed options.
ORA-22297: warning: Open LOBs exist at transaction commit time
Cause: An attempt was made to commit a transaction with open LOBs at transaction commit time.
Action: This is just a warning. The transaction was commited successfully, but any domain or functional indexes on the open LOBs were not updated. You may want to rebuild those indexes.
ORA-22298: length of directory alias name or file name too long
Cause: The length of directory alias name or file name given for a BFILE is too long.
Action: Use a shorter alias or file name.
ORA-22303: type "string"."string" not found
Cause: The user is trying to obtain information for a type that cannot be found.
Action: Check that the schema is correct and that the type has been created correctly.
ORA-22304: input type is not an object type
Cause: The user is trying to obtain the supertype information for a non-object type.
Action: Pass in only an object type.
ORA-22305: attribute/method/parameter "string" not found
Cause: Type element with the given name is not found in the type.
Action: Check to make sure that the type element exists.
ORA-22306: type "string"."string" already exists
Cause: The user is trying to create a type that already exists.
Action: Check to make sure that the type has not been created prior to this.
ORA-22307: operation must be on a user-defined type
Cause: attempt to perform an operation that is allowed only on a user-defined type, and the type is not a user-defined type.
Action: Check to make sure that only user-defined types are being operated on.
ORA-22308: operation not allowed on evolved type
Cause: An attempt was made to replace a type whose attribute definition been been altered.
Action: Submit ALTER TYPE ADD/DROP statement instead of ALTER TYPE REPLACE.
ORA-22309: attribute with name "string" already exists
Cause: The user is attempting to create an object type where more than one attributes have the same name.
Action: Check to make sure that all attribute names are unique.
ORA-22310: ALTER TYPE error. Refer to table "string"."string" for errors
Cause: An invalid alter type statement was submitted.
Action: Correct the errors listed in specified table and resubmit statement.
ORA-22311: type for attribute "string" does not exist
Cause: The type of the attribute does not exist.
Action: No types were created/modified for this DDL transaction. Redo the DDL transaction and add the creation of the attribute's type in the DDL transaction.
ORA-22312: must specify either CASCADE or INVALIDATE option
Cause: An attempt was made to alter a type which has a dependent type or table without specifying the CASCADE or INVALIDATE option.
Action: Resubmit the statement with either the CASCADE or INVALIDATE option. Specify CASCADE if you want to cascade the type change to dependent types and tables; otherwise, specify INVALIDATE to invalidate all dependents.
ORA-22313: cannot use two versions of the same type "string"
Cause: The version of this type conflicts with the version of this type used by another library that was linked in with the application. An application may only use one version of a type.
Action: Check that the libraries being linked with this application and use the same versions of the type.
ORA-22314: method information mismatch in ALTER TYPE
Cause: The number of methods or the method signature do not match that of the original type declaration. This is not supported.
Action: Make sure the method signature stay identical for the previously declared method. Do not drop existing methods.
ORA-22315: type "string" does not contain a map or order function
Cause: The input type does not contain a map or order function so one cannot be returned.
Action: Add a map or order function to the type or catch this error.
ORA-22316: input type is not a collection type
Cause: The user is trying to obtain information for collection types on a non-named collection type.
Action: Use a named collection type for the function.
ORA-22317: typecode number is not legal as a number type
Cause: The user is trying to use a number typecode that is not valid.
Action: Use only OCI_TYPECODE_SMALLINT, OCI_TYPECODE_INTEGER, OCI_TYPECODE_REAL, OCI_TYPECODE_DOUBLE, OCI_TYPECODE_FLOAT, OCI_TYPECODE_NUMBER, or OCI_TYPECODE_DECIMAL.
ORA-22318: input type is not an array type
Cause: The user is trying to obtain the number of elements for a non-array type.
Action: Pass in only a named collection type which is an array.
ORA-22319: type attribute information altered in ALTER TYPE
Cause: The type attribute information does not match that of the original type declaration when altering type. Attributes cannot be altered during ALTER TYPE. Only new methods can be added.
Action: Check that all type alterations are legal.
ORA-22320: missing user version string
Cause: The VERSION option is specified without a user version string.
Action: Resubmit the statement with the version string following the VERSION keyword.
ORA-22321: method does not return any result
Cause: OCITypeResult() was called on a method that does not return any results.
Action: Check that you are passing in the correct method descriptor, or that your method creation was done correctly.
ORA-22322: error table "string"."string" has incorrect structure
Cause: The specified error table does not have the expected table structure.
Action: Execute the DBMS_UTILITY.CREATE_ALTER_TYPE_ERROR_TABLE procedure to create an error table, then resubmit the statement using the new error table.
