You're trying to say something? If you want nice boring list without much technical contents, you can always send an email to, with "SUBSCRIBE ORACLE-L" in the title or body. You will be protected from someone telling you the truth about your technical abilities as the most important things on the oracle-l is politeness.
Other than that, you're sadly off topic. This is not the right group to discuss my character traits and your perception of them. When I come to think of it, I don't expect something better from you. Here's a sample, just for you:

How do I remove a dbms_scheduler job? Or see one for that matter? I’ve googled, and got lots of answers, but they seem to leave off at cleanup.

I can see this in all_scheduler_job_log and all_scheduler_job_run_details as failed as not a valid procedure… (which is ok).

DBMON @ pegrtdev> exec DBMS_SCHEDULER.create_job ('whse_extract', 'STORED_PROCEDURE', 'FactAppointment.Rebuil

PL/SQL procedure successfully completed.

DBMON @ pegrtdev> exec dbms_scheduler.drop_job('whse_extract', TRUE); BEGIN dbms_scheduler.drop_job('whse_extract', TRUE); END;


ERROR at line 1:

ORA-27475: "DBMON.WHSE_EXTRACT" must be a job

ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_ISCHED", line 178

ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_SCHEDULER", line 544

ORA-06512: at line 1"

Of course, it is completely unacceptable to tell the guy to go away and read some literature. People are using oracle-l as the a freeware CBT, which means that the list is boring and useless, thanks to the moderator whose career these days consists mostly of enforcing politeness. As I am one of the few original members of the list who has been there for more than 10 years, I have every right to complain. If you don't like my posts, you can filter out my messages. If you don't know how to do that, you're a bozo not worthy of my time.
