    Could somebody post a better solution?

    What if you get a db that did not tell you the version number? What are you gonna do?

    I never get that because I apply the scripts after patching

    Cool

    THE BEST SOLUTION :

    SELECT * FROM product_component_version;

    product_component_version does not tell you all the patches that have been installed.

    I have installed a patch 8.1.7.1.5 but this only displays the first patch - 8.1.7.1.
    I'm afraid Oracle does not always update the version numbers.

    Hi,

    From Sanjay's mail:
    "If these is difference between major version of datafile and software installed e.g. If the datafiles are 8.1.6 version and suppose you use oracle 9i software to mount oracle 8i database, I am sure , you will get error."

    Oracle does not give any error. This is a method which you will use for Oracle9i migration.

    If you are on unix:

    $ strings system01.dbf | grep "NLS_RDBMS_VERSION"

    NLS_RDBMS_VERSION 8.1.7.2.0 RDBMS version for NLS parameters,

    $

    Put the correct name of your system tablespace data file in place of "system01.dbf".

    I am sure in NT also you can check for the same string "NLS_RDBMS_VERSION" using an utility (no idea what though!).
