Hi,

I have a oracle form. When i use Compile Module (Ctrl + T) I am getting the following error:
FRM-30457: Warning: Maximum Length ignored for character-datatype subordinate mirror item MAIN_CONTROLS.DATA1.
Can anyone help to resolve this warning message?


Thank You

Hi cookiemanster,

It shows like below actions...
Quote:

Error Cause:
A non-zero value was specified for the Maximum Length property in a subordinate mirror item whose Data Type is CHAR, ALPHA, or LONG. The Maximum Length property for such an item will be obtained from the master mirror item (the item specified by the Synchronize with Item property).
Action:
Specify the Maximum Length property in the master mirror item.


I checked both the items have datatype 'Char' and both of them have Maximum length specified. Still I am getting this error.

The error clause strongly implies you shouldn't specify max length in the sub-ordinate item.

You have 2 items. One of them is MASTER ("original"), another one is SUBORDINATE ("copy").

Remove these values from the SUBORDINATE (i.e. "second" i.e. "copy") item.
