Cause: An object name was specified that was not recognized by the system. There are several possible causes:

- An invalid name for a table, view, sequence, procedure, function, package, or package body was entered. Since the system could not recognize the invalid name, it responded with the message that the named object does not exist.

- An attempt was made to rename an index or a cluster, or some other object that cannot be renamed.

Action: Check the spelling of the named object and rerun the code. (Valid names of tables, views, functions, etc. can be listed by querying the data dictionary.)

Action: Either use a different database link or create the database link.
ORA-04055: Aborted: "string" formed a non-REF mutually-dependent cycle with "string".
Cause: This compilation was aborted because the library unit that was compiled would have formed a non-REF mutually-dependent cycle with some other library units. This happens when an attempt is made to compile types that have attributes of other types that may participate in a cycle with this type. Example: create type t1; create type t2 (a t1); create type t1 (a t2);
Action: Break the cycle (possibly by adding a REF or by using another type).

ORA-04062: string of string has been changed
Cause: Attempt to execute a stored procedure to serve an RPC stub which specifies a timestamp or signature that is different from the current timestamp/signature of the procedure.
Action: Recompile the caller in order to pick up the new timestamp.

Cause: An invalid trigger type was given.
Action: Specify either INSERT, UPDATE or DELETE.

Cause: The TRIGGER name or type already exists.
Action: Use a different trigger name or drop the trigger which is of the same name.
ORA-04082: NEW or OLD references not allowed in table level triggers
Cause: The trigger is accessing "new" or "old" values in a table trigger.
Action: Remove any new or old references.
ORA-04083: invalid trigger variable 'string'
Cause: The variable referenced in the trigger body is invalid.
Action: See the manual for valid trigger variable types.

Cause: Old values can only be read and not changed.
Action: Do not attempt to change an old variable.
ORA-04086: trigger description too long, move comments into triggering code
Cause: The trigger description is limited to 2000 characters (for dictionary storage reasons). The description does not include the text of the "when" clause or the text of the pl/sql code executed for the trigger.
Action: If the trigger description contains a large comment, move that
ORA-04087: cannot change the value of ROWID reference variable
Cause: Rowid's can only be read and not changed.

Action: Rewrite the trigger (or function) so it does not read that table.
ORA-04092: cannot string in a trigger
Cause: A trigger attempted to commit or rollback.
Action: Rewrite the trigger so it does not commit or rollback.

Cause: Cannot replace a trigger which already exists on a different table than the one being replaced.
Action: Drop the trigger with the same name and re-create it.
ORA-04096: trigger 'string' has a WHEN clause which is too large, limit 2K
Cause: A trigger's 'when' clause is limited to 2K for dictionary storage reasons. The trigger being created exceeded that size.
Action: Use a smaller 'when' clause. Note, the trigger body could be used to perform the same limiting action as the 'when' clause.

Cause: An attempt was made to concurrently perform two DDL operations on a trigger or trigger table.
Action: Investigate the new state of the trigger and retry the DDL operation, if still appropriate.
