Hi all,

This problem occures only sometimes. I'm getting the list of indexes from the user_indexes table and later perform on them a rebuild operation by using the command :
Alter index index_name coalesce

This might cause on some indexes to the following error:
ORA-01418: specified index does not exist

I know these indexes exist and I didn't find any reson for this situation.

Does anyone have any idea about it ?

Thanks,
Lital

Could you post output of

SELECT * FROM user_indexes WHERE index_name = 'THAT_PARTICULAR_INDEX';

so that we could see how it looks like. Not that it *surely* will help, but ... could be a starting point.

Hi,

I've searched the metalink but couldn't find a bug that matches might be connected to it.
Do you have any information about this bug ?

Thanks a lot,
Lital

You have not yet answered Littlefoot's question.

You might have created the index with double quotes.

Hi Oracle Experts,

Please let me know the reason



SQL> sho user
USER is "RAHS2"
SQL> select index_name,table_name from user_indexes where index_name='IX_objcontent2_rating';

INDEX_NAME TABLE_NAME
------------------------------ ------------------------------
IX_objcontent2_rating OBJCONTENT2

SQL> analyze index IX_objcontent2_rating compute statistics;
analyze index IX_objcontent2_rating compute statistics
*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-01418: specified index does not exist


SQL> analyze index rahs2.IX_objcontent2_rating compute statistics;
analyze index rahs2.IX_objcontent2_rating compute statistics
*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-01418: specified index does not exist


Thanks in Advance
Vijay

Do not use ANALYZE, use DBMS_STATS to gather statistics.

Well since the index_name isn't in upper case in user_indexes it's safe to assume the index was created with it's name wrapped in double quotes.
This means that it's case sensitive and you have to wrap it's name in double quotes each time to want to refer to it in code.
Here's the same thing with a table:
SQL> create table "bob" (a number);

Table created.

SQL> select * from bob;
select * from bob
              *
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-00942: table or view does not exist


SQL> select * from "bob";

no rows selected

SQL> 


Suggest you drop the index and re-create it without the double-quotes
