How to trap the FRM-47017 error ? [message #366255] Fri, 12 December 2008 05:30 Go to next message

Hi all,

I need to delete a parameter ('branch code') from a parameter list, but this parameter is not always in the list.
I come to the problem that, if the branch code is not in the list and I try to delete it, the FRM-47017 error will popup. I need to suppress this error message.

I try to use exception to trap the error as follows , but not succeed :

delete_parameter(pl_id, 'BRANCH_CODE')
when others then

Also, I try to set the SYSTEM.MESSAGE_LEVEL, still with no luck.

Now I use the ON-ERROR to handle the error, but I have 150 forms that will do the same thing, how can I avoid adding 150 ON-ERROR triggers but still can suppress the error ?

I think I fixed this at a previous site some 8 years ago by building a completely new parameter list that did not include the ones that I had initially tried to delete.

Perhaps using nested 'begin exception; end;' statements might get around the problem. Sorry, I can't remember the final solution we used.
