Hi all,

I'm having problems creating a function in the following scenario.
I have a user that has 'select' system privileges on certain tables in another users schema. I've created local synonyms for these tables and I can query them without any problems. However, I've been trying to create a function with a select query using the tables from the other schema but I constantly receive compilation errors where it says that the table/view doesn't exist. There are no problems creating this function in the schema where the tables belong but I can't do it from this user. I believe there is an issue with privileges for this user but I'm not sure what the minimum privs are is to make this work.

Many thanks
Erik

hi

you have two option.
1. Use "schema" name before table name in ur function.
2. Or use synonym in function.

sql>conn scott/tiger
sql>grant select on emp to hr;

sql>conn hr/hr
sql>select * from [B]scott.emp[/B];
sql>create synonyn emp_scott for scott.emp;
sql>select * from emp_scott;

sql>create or replace function "name"
...
...
here use 1. synonym or table name with schema. 
like [b] emp_scott or scott.emp [/b]

end "name"



hope this helps.
Mohammad Taj.
