Hi there!

How do we find & replace a certain value in the database without even knowing the table and/or field name?

Kindly suggest me an automated tool that can do it for me automatically!

The database is oracle 9i.

I need this suggestion immediately!

Best regards!

The simple approach is to write yourself a procedure (it will not be fast)!

cursor all the data-tables
cursor all the columns on the table
check the data-type for the column
perform search (and or update) for char

This is not nice but does its job. - and once you have the code you never have to loose data again :)

PS - plase post a copy once you have done it :)
