hi all i am getting this error vcan any one help me out.
ALTER TABLE PRONTO_WISP ADD CONSTRAINT WPNAME_UN UNique(WISP_NAME)
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-02299: cannot validate (WINTER02.WPNAME_UN) - duplicate keys found
You are trying to create UNIQUE constraint on column WISP_NAME, but it has duplicate contents.
Above sql stmt will give you duplicate records for WISP_NAME. You need to delete duplicate entries prior to creating constraint.
SELECT * FROM pronto_wisp
WHERE ROWID NOT IN
( SELECT MIN(ROWID) FROM pronto_wisp GROUP BY wisp_name)
