The parameter is REMOTE_DEPENDENCIES_MODE. I did try it out but it didn't seem to effect what I am having issues with. The description of the parameter says it effects packages, procedures and functions, but doesn't mention views.

The packages in both user schemas use exactly the same name for the remote view. The only difference is where the dblink points. I haven't tried it, but I think my issue is due to a naming collision. If I get a chance to test my theory I will post my results back here.

Thanks all for your suggestions. Received on Thu Aug 07 2008 - 07:39:55 CDT
