ROWID snapshot log is exported,
ROWIDs stored in the snapshot log have no meaning upon import. As a result, each
ROWID snapshot's first attempt to do a fast refresh fails, generating an error indicating that a complete refresh is required.
To avoid the refresh error, do a complete refresh after importing a
ROWID snapshot log. After you have done a complete refresh, subsequent fast refreshes will work properly. In contrast, when a primary key snapshot log is exported, the values of the primary keys do retain their meaning upon import. Therefore, primary key snapshots can do a fast refresh after the import.
