    If you usesomthing like the follwoing you're OK:


    DECLARE
    v_rowid ROWID;
    BEGIN
    SELECT rowid
    INTO v_rowid
    FROM emp
    WHERE empno = 1234
    FOR UPDATE;

    -- Do something

    UPDATE emp
    SET sal = 2000
    WHERE rowid = v_rowid;
    COMMIT;
    END;
    /


    If you actually store the rowids in a table, or generate them manually your screwed. You can use the DBMS_ROWID package to convert them but I wouldn't bother.

    You should really consider re-engineering your system to avaios the use of stored rowids if possible. As well as this upgrade issue you are prevented from using export/import.
