DML Error Logging for underlying tables autocreated for dimensions

I have problems with logging errors during mapping for underlying tables that are automatically generated for creating dimensions. I know that DML Error Logging is supposed to work only on tables, views and materialized views, and I have tried it out using a pure table in a mapping without any reference to a dimension and specifying the error table name for it. This works perfectly. The error rows were captured correctly in the error table and the correct rows were also loaded successfully to the target table.
However when it comes to mapping to a dimension, I have some issues with that. I specified the shadowtable name for the underlying table(right clicking on the table in design center and then choosing configure), and after deploying I did check that the error table/shadow table and also the target table were indeed created in the database.
The problem lies now in the mapping because I am actually mapping to a dimension and not the underlying table the dimension references to. It seems that the mapping did not manage to capture details of the error table for the underlying table that the dimension was referencing to and thus were unable to capture the errors. Only the corrected rows get loaded and there were no error messages during the loading that suggests that the incorrect rows were detected.
Would appreciate some assistance here.

The DML error logging feature in 10gR2 and 11gR1 was restricted purely to tables, so the dimension operator did not support it. This is now supported in OWB 11gR2 (plus there is the orphan management functionality).

  • DML Error Logging with multiple tables = OALL8

    I have a mapping that, via a splitter, loads 3 tables. This mapping works perfectly.
    Recently we upgraded to OWB so we decided to make use of the new feature of DML error logging. So three error-tables where created and the "error table name" property of each table was entered. When re-creating this mapping in the database the following errors occur: "State of OALL8 is inconsistent", "No more data to read from Socket" (translated from dutch). When removing the value from the "error table name" property again, the mapping can be recreated again.
    What am I doing wrong? Have I run into a bug?

    Which database version are you using?
    Also not sure when exactly the error occurs, when you deploy the map...or when you execute the map? Can you describe as simple a scenario for it to fail that you can?
    I did find a bug 5942415 which was to do with this area..worth checking anyway.

  • OWB 10gR2 Does not support DML Error Logging

    I've just had this confirmed by support.
    So Oracle's key ETL tool does not support 10gR2s key ETL feature DML Logging.
    So far set based loads on large volume databases you are going to find yourself being tripped over into row by row processing.
    I find this staggering.
    Has anyone else found this?

  • Use global temp table for DML error logging

    our database is enterprise edition on solaris 10
    we are wondering if anyone has an opinion of or has done this before, to use a global temp table for DML error logging. We have a fairly busy transactional database with 2 hot tables for inserts. The regular error table created with dbms_errlog has caused many deadlocks which we don't quite understand yet. we have thought using global temp table for the purpose, and that seemed to work, but we can't read error from the GTT, the table is empty even reading from the same session as inserts. Does anyone have an idea why?

    The insert into the error logging table is done with a recursive transaction therefore it's private from your session which is doing the actual insert.

  • Dml error logging for tables in

    Hi experts,
    I have problems loading error records into the shadow table specified in the configuration window for tables. Upon executing the mapping, the execution results show warnings with the error records but these records were not moved to the shadow/error table.
    The actual scenario is: I specified a non-null data rule on the supplier_code column in the supplier table. Inside the mapping where I used this supplier table, I choose the option "Move to error" for this non-null data rule. Upon executing, it seems that owb treats these as warnings and not errors and thus did not propagate them to the error table. Anyone has any suggestion as to how to make use of the error tables in owb?

    DML error logging is generated for set-based PL/SQL mappings if the following conditions are satisfied:
    1. the Error table name property is set for the operator (table/view/mv)
    2. the PL/SQL Generated Mode of the module that contains the mapping is set to 10gR2 and above or Default.
    If the value is set to Default, ensure that location associated with the module has the Version set to 10.2 or above.
    When you use a data object in a mapping, the Error Table Name property for this data object is derived from the shadow table name property of the data object . If you modify the error table name of a data object (using the shadow table name property), you must synchronize all the operators bound to this data object.
    If you are still facing the issue then provide your email and I can send a simple example of data rule mapping in OWB


    When I use a simple expression in my dml error logging statement for a multitable insert I get 'end of file on communication channel' on the compile(in all guis tested). It works fine without the simple expression for the multitable insert. The simple expression works ok with a single table insert.
    this works ok for single table insert and blows up on multitable inserts:
    this works ok for both:
    any ideas?

    No version number, no DDl, and no DML. No help is possible.
    Complete version information and a demo that people can run to duplicate your situation will increase the chance of getting help.
    I, for example, have no idea what you intend with the statement multitable insert. Is this a reference to INSERT ALL or INSERT FIRST or some other syntax?

  • DML Error logging for Update statement

    I am facing a problem with regard to DML Error logging with Update statement .
    oracle : 10.2
    I am executing following DML update:
    table_1  a
    SET a.Exp_DATE =a.EFF_DATE
    WHERE  a.col_a1 != (SELECT b.colb1
                         FROM table_2  b
                         WHERE  a.msisdn =b.msisdn )
    LOG ERRORS INTO table_1_ERR REJECT LIMIT UNLIMITED;                        
    END ;    I was expecting that "ORA-01427: single-row subquery returns more than one row" would be captured in LOG error table "table_1_err"
    but instead I got run time error and whole dml was rolled back.
    Please let me know whether this exception is not captured by DML error logging.

    *Oracle logs the following errors during DML operations:** Column values that are too large.
    * Constraint violations (NOT NULL, unique, referential, and check constraints).
    * Errors raised during trigger execution.
    * Errors resulting from type conversion between a column in a subquery and the corresponding column of the table.
    * Partition mapping errors.

  • DML Error logging table in Set base mode

    Hi all,
    In ETL data errors can be handled thru error logging table. Like this example given in the document-
    INTO sales SELECT product_id, customer_id, TRUNC(sales_date), 3,
    promotion_id, quantity, amount
    FROM sales_activity_direct
    LOG ERRORS INTO sales_activity_errors('load_20040802')
    In this example bulk loading is possible even in the presence of errors. The data errors will go in table 'Sales_activity_errors'.
    I want to generate this kind of coding in OWB in set base mode. For that i have to create a error logging table in target schema. How can I reference this table in a mapping? can it be done by shadow table? It's a very important feature in ETL for bulk loading. Is it available in OWB in set based mode?
    Guyzz please check this out and help me..

    I am not sure if the DML error logging method is avaliable to be used in OWB 10g R2. You can use the data rule method. Create the data rules on the target table. Deploy it from OWB. Create your mappings and then execute them. Two insert statements will be generated. One for loading the target table for loading records where no rules are violated. The other for loading the <target table>_ERR for loading records where one or more error rules are violated.
    Both these statements do a bulk loading. So your purpose will be solved.
    Again you can use the splitter method that has already been mentioned.

  • Error "No entry in table T589A for P" while creating new Infotype

    I've created a new infotype (9605). All the tables, structures, screens etc. have been created using transaction PM01 successfully. But upon execution of Infotype from PA30, the infotype screen is displayed with the following error:
    "No entry in table T589A for P"
    Any input will be highly appreciated.
    Thank you,

    Hi Farooq,
    Untill and unless the the field PSYST-IOPER is cleared explicitly in the program MP960500 (in PBO modules), this error should not occur.
    Also is this error is coming only for 9605 infotype ? Also is any other info availaible in the error message such as entry in table t589a is not available for which value of OPERA (INS, MOD, DEL, LIS etc) ?

  • DML Error Logging Tables?

    How can I use DML Error Logging Tables with OWB10gR2 (in tab-definition and mappings)?
    btw: what really is a shadow-table?

    What you can do to solve this is to add a Pre-mapping to your mapping which calls a procedure that alters the constraint on the target table in which you use the "EXCEPTIONS INTO <error_table> " clause.
    v_table            varchar2(30) := p_table;
    v_constraint          varchar2(30) := p_constraint;
    v_command           varchar2(200);
    e_CannotValidate      exception;
    PRAGMA EXCEPTION_INIT(e_CannotValidate, -2437);
    -- main body
    /* Enable Constraint and write error into exception table */
        v_command := 'ALTER TABLE ' || v_table || ' ENABLE CONSTRAINT '|| v_constraint ||' EXCEPTIONS INTO exceptions';
        execute immediate (v_command);
            WHEN e_CannotValidate THEN
               -- In my case when Unique Constraints are violated I will delete the duplicates.
               DELETE_DUPLICATES(v_table, v_constraint);
            WHEN OTHERS THEN
                NULL;  -- enter any exception code here

  • Limitation on DML error logging

    Can someone please advise what is not supported by DML error logging which was introduced in Oracle 10g?
    one Oracle document says "You cannot track errors in the error logging table for LONG, LOB, or object type columns".
    One says only non-scalar columns, like datatime is not support.
    Another one says it doesn't support nested table.

  • Owb11gr2 dml error logging

    Hi all,
    I was trying to make use of the error tables for dml errors based on data rules defined for a table in owb11gr2. I saw that for a table operator in my mapping, there is this "DML Error Table Name" and "Error Table Name" property. What is the difference between these two?

    According to Oracle "Data Modeling, ETL, and Data Quality Guide"
    Error Table Name :-
    Represents the name of the error table that stores logical errors
    caused by enforcing data profiling and orphan management.
    DML Error Table Name :-
    Use the DML Error Table Name property to log DML errors for a particular data
