    Ora-01410: Invalid Rowid

    Hi Friends,

    I've created a view of two tables, and I included rowid because I am fetching
    its uniqueness thru it. For example:
    Tables:
    1. LOANS_A (NAME, AMOUNT)
    2. LOANS_B (NAME, AMOUNT)

    CREATE VIEW LOANS AS SELECT ROWID as R1,NAME,AMOUNT FROM LOANS_A
    UNION ALL SELECT ROWID as R1,NAME,AMOUNT FROM LOANS_B;

    sql> SELECT R1 FROM LOANS;

    R1
    ---

    AAAAAbbbbbbdddd1ee


    sql> select * from loans where r1='AAAAAbbbbbbdddd1ee';

    ORA-01410: Invalid Rowid


    How do I avoid this error pls....


    Thanks a lot

    you cant query rowid's like that, you shoukdnt really be using rowid at all, use your own primary key

    thanks davey
    sad :( ... this table dont have PK and its partitioned one and got 100+million rows.

    Is this the right wat to do the primary key?:

    alter table loans_a add(pk_1 number);
    alter table loans_b add(pk_2 number);

    update loans_a set pk_1=rownum;
    update loans_b set pk_2=rownum;

    alter table loans_a add primary key (pk_1);
    alter table loans_b add primary key (pk_2);

    Thanks

    Hi

    Whats the table partitioned on ?

    You should understand the underlying data model before deciding on the primary key

    You can always use a rownum or a sequence to generate the primary key

    To find your PK candidate ask yourself "how do I know there are no duplicate rows in this table?"
