    Access sequences

    Hi,

    I have a sequence in schema "A".

    Now I want to access this sequence from schema "B" through a procedure.

    I ve given the select grant for this sequence..but still I am not able to see that sequence.

    funny part is...few sequnecs I am able to see...its like..out of 10 i can see 6..rest 4 it gives me this error

    ORA-02289: sequence does not exist

    can anyone please tell me if Ive missed any grants?
    Thanks
    Sam

    Please note that if your procedure is created to use owneres rights, it does not sees the rights granted via role. So if you gave grant select on the sequence to a role and then grant the role to the user, owning the procedure, the procedure will still not be able to see the sequence. That's pretty much common mistake

    Regards
    Boris

    Assuming you have your privileges right...

    Have you fully qualified the sequence name?... like schema_name.sequence_name?

    OR

    Have you created a public synonym for your sequence?

    ... perhaps 'cause of you have enclosed the schema_name in between quotes?

    Anyway, thank you for being honest and telling us what really happened
