    Hi All,

    When I attempt to start SQL*PLUS I am getting SP1.MSB not found error.
    Whenever I get this error I used to re-install Oracle and then work.
    I would like to know whether there's a direct method for resolving this error.

    Any help will be highly appreciated.

    Thanks.
    Vijay.

    check $ORACLE_HOME/sqlplus/mesg

    it has to be there the file otherwise you get the error
    this file is simply contains sqlplus messages

    Hi Pando,

    I have the files in the directory. I have also tried copying the files from some other system
    and paste it there. But still ...........

    I wanted to know whether there's a workaround apart from re-installing the software.

    Hi,

    The Oracle software was installed properly and we were working with the databases etc...
    All of a sudden, this problem came.

    I have encountered this situation a few times before. I had discussed with a few of my Sr. DBA's too.
    The answer I got was.........REINSTALL.

    Can u tell me what u did?

    another example, now I use sp1e.msb and sp2e.msb

    Code:
    oracle@simdes:/oracle/simp/sqlplus/mesg> echo $NLS_LANG
    AMERICAN_AMERICA.WE8ISO8859P1
    oracle@simdes:/oracle/simp/sqlplus/mesg> export NLS_LANG=SPANISH_SPAIN.WE8ISO8859P1
    oracle@simdes:/oracle/simp/sqlplus/mesg> ls
    cpye.msb  cpyus.msb  cpyus.msg  sp1e.msb  sp1us.msb  sp1us.msg  sp2e.msb  sp2us.msb  sp2us.msg
    oracle@simdes:/oracle/simp/sqlplus/mesg> mkdir ../tmp
    oracle@simdes:/oracle/simp/sqlplus/mesg> mv sp* ../tmp
    oracle@simdes:/oracle/simp/sqlplus/mesg> sqlplus internal
    Message file sp1.msb not found
    Error 6 initializing SQL*Plus
    oracle@simdes:/oracle/simp/sqlplus/mesg> cp ../tmp/sp1e.msb .
    oracle@simdes:/oracle/simp/sqlplus/mesg> sqlplus internal
    Message file sp2.msb not found
    Error 7 initializing SQL*Plus

    see I get spanish messages now and instead of putting sp1us.msb and sp2us.msb it works with sp1e* that is because I changed my NLS_LANG

    More than one database?!

    Vijay,

    Do u have more than one database in your machine?

    Check out the value for ORACLE_SID and ORACLE_HOME
    and set them to the respective values you want.

    Export those values and login using sqlplus again.

    This had happened to me more than once.

    See if it helps.

    Cheers,
    Nandu


    Never give up !
