If you're bored with seeing the same old error messages, have you tried spicing up your life by installing Oracle in a different language?

SQL> select * from fjfjfjfjf;
select * from fjfjfjfjf
*
ERREUR la ligne 1 :
ORA-00942: Table ou vue inexistante

Otherwise, like someone else suggested, you can have a EXCEPTION clause in a PL/SQL block to catch the error and display a different message, but that won't change the "default" error message. Received on Thu Sep 06 2001 - 19:52:23 CDT
