SQL Developer 3.0.02 & External table

Hello all,
I encountered an interesting error while working with SQL Developer. I created external table mapped on data file in csv format. Everything works fine up to moment I double clicked the table header of the first column to make data sorting. Since I am not able to see table data even if the SQL Developer has been restarted.
In the 'Data Editor - Log' window I can see the text as follows:
ORA-00600: internal error code, arguments: [rworupo.1], [17], [10], [], [], [], [], []
When I open SQL view of that table I can see:
-- Unable to render TABLE DDL for object FSM.COMPANY with DBMS_METADATA attempting internal generator.
badfile ETL_SOURCE:'COMPANY.bad'
logfile ETL_SOURCE:'COMPANY.log'
discardfile ETL_SOURCE:'COMPANY.dsc'
LRTRIM missing field VALUES are NULL
ETL_SOURCE: 'Company.csv'
In the log file for that table there is nothing, what could explain the error.
Does anybody know how to fix it.
Thanks for any idea.

Hello Jiri!
this is because of SQL Developer does not support "order by" over external tables.
In general it is not disabled in SQL developer to use it for external tables but due to unknown reason execution of select including "order by" clause over external table generates ORA-00600 error.
SQL Developer is saving all used "order by", "filter" settings (and many others) to special cache (user specific XML file) and this setting is used next time you open specific object - table.
It means when you apply "sorting" on external table
- oracle generates ORA-00600
- used "order by" is stored by SQL Developer into cahce XML file
- ...and you cannot open this table from your SQL developer anymore
How to correct it:
- go to SQL developer cache folder (something like C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\SQL Developer)
- try to find file "*GridSettings.xml" which contains this bad cache information
there are usually tons of GridSettings.xml files
you have to find file which contains your specific extenal table name like...
- find "sortClauses" tag
<Item class="java.lang.String">3 asc</Item>
- you can now edit/correct content of this file/tag or just delete it completely
- or you can easily delete complete cache folder - BUT in this case all specific user setting can be deleted!!!
- then your table is accessible again :-)

  • SQL Developer: Not able to view tables

    I am new to sqldeveloper and oracle products. I've recently installed sqldeveloper onto my pc, i am able to connect to the database but when i try and expand the tables item in the treeview i dont get the tables displayed and the error Warning, unhandled exception:Closed connection is shown in the logging page at the bottom. I have uninstalled the oracle client, jdk but still i keep getting this problem.
    Current versions are

    It looks like it may be a privilege issue.

  • SQL Developer - Cannot see list of tables in my connection

    Hi - when I downloaded and started to use the SQL developer tool, once I connected, I could see all of the tables/columns in my connection on the left side of the tool, and I had my query panel, results panel, and SQL history stacked on the right. Suddenly something has changed, and I cannot see the list of tables, etc. in my connection anymore, so I have to rely on memory and SQL history to remember the table and column names. It has to be "hidden" somehow, but view-connections does not help, and trying to click and drag windows doesn't uncover it either.
    Any suggestions?

    Probably better to ask in the SQL Developer forum here: SQL Developer
    I've been trying the version 2 beta though and it has quite a few bugs in. Table browsing is working fine for me, but all my functions and procedures have disappeared from the tree view. It does odd things with code formatting too.
    I don't think it will be supplanting trusty old command line SQL Plus for me yet any time soon...

  • 30EA2 - SQL-Developer 3.0.02 Another Table Data Sort Order Bug

    Although the "30EA1 - SQL-Developer 3.0.02 Table Data Sort Order Bug" still exists in 30EA2, there is a new substantial mistake.
    How to see it:
    Open table1 (Preference "Automatically Freeze Object Viewer Windows" is set). Click data.
    Open table2. Click data.
    Go back to table1. Click Sort. => You see the columns of table2. The is no way to sort table1, before you close the table2 window (tab).

  • SQL Developer 1.5.1 - Sorting Table / List of Columns - Why So Slow

    Hi All,
    why is it so slow to sort the list of columns names in a table.
    It appears to be going back and querying the database again. - shouldn't it just be doing a local sort of the JTable ?
    Edited by: wfs on Oct 28, 2008 2:31 PM

    Yes, it does query again - as it does with everything else being sorted.
    You're right they could implement local sorting on a little, complete set, but that should be requested at the announced SQL Developer Exchange, since I recon that would get pretty tedious (taking in count NLS sorting settings).
    Then mind you have to query again anyway if a result set is not complete (by default, fetches are 50 records at a time), or fetch everything before being able to apply the local sort, which will give you even more problems on large tables.

  • Import bug (fatal error): SQL Developer 4.1EA2 drops destination table upon rollback after error

    I created a table in the worksheet and then I tried to import data into is using SQL Developer EA2. After error is raised, I was presented with the error on the screenshot below. (Note: Rightmost button stands for "Cancel") By choosing cancel (i.e. Click cancel to cancel and rollback.) my destination table is dropped to recycle bin. Rollback should not undo any DDL even when the table was created using the import wizard. But purging a table that was not created by the import wizard is a fatal error.
    Steps to reproduce:
    create the destination table from worksheet and check if it was created:
    column table_name format a21
    create table test_imp_rollback_bug(dummy number(2));
    insert into test_imp_rollback_bug values (-1);
    select table_name from user_tables where table_name='TEST_IMP_ROLLBACK_BUG';
    import CSV using the import settings attached, To achieve this, utilize the new Restore state of the SQL Developer's import wizard. Note: you might need to adjust schema of the destination table.
    Upon "Insert failed for rows  1  through  50 " message presented, click Cancel.
    The table does not exists any more:
    select table_name from user_tables where table_name='TEST_IMP_ROLLBACK_BUG';
    no rows selected
    Edit (jmarton, 2015-04-26):
    Software versions used:
    SQL Developer version:
    Oracle JDK: 1.8.0_31, 64bit, Linux
    Instant client: linux.x64-
    Database: 12cR1 64bit, Linux, EE, CDB-install

    select table_name from user_tables where table_name='TEST_IMP_ROLLBACK_BUG'; 
    no rows selected
    >>Note: you might need to adjust schema of the destination table.
    A rollback won't drop a table. Are you sure the tale isn't there? select from dba_tables or all_tables, assuming you had to change the destination schema as indicated in your test notes.

    The numeric value of 39057 in an Excel cell does display as 06-Dec-2006 when applying a date format DD-Mon-YYYY, so you are getting the right value - just not the right formatting.
    Which column type are you trying to import the XLS date into? If you are not loading the value into a date field, SQL Developer is probably just loading the base excel value of 39057.

  • HOW TO: Open SQL Developer from a batch file with specific tables opened

    I use SQL Developer daily as I develop database intensive programs.
    ** Question **
    How can I define a specific configuration of tabs (i.e. tables, procedures, etc) to be opened upon startup of SQL Developer?
    For example, creating a .BAT file to open SQL Developer with a specific set of table tabs already opened. This will save me the time every morning I use to open SQL Developer and configure all the tables I need opened.
    NOTE: I have tried various options of appending a table name to a command line starting sqldeveloper.exe. For example: ..\sqldeveloper.exe mydatabase.mytable. However, this only opens a worksheet tab with the name "mydatabase.mytable" but does not open my actual table.
    Any help will be appreciated.

  • Unable to view table list in sql developer

    I am able to connect to the database through sql developer but unable to view tables list.
    Select query is displaying the contents though.
    Any Help ???

    Using SQL Developer, I log in using the owner user id and password. I can see all but one of my materialized views. It was definitely created by the user id I'm logged in as. A query of user_objects in sql+ shows all MVs, including the one that's missing in SQL Developer. If I log in using the same credentials in TOAD, the MV is displayed in the current schema, as I'd expect. The super weird thing is that if I use the previous version of SQL Developer, I see that MV! Any thoughts?

  • SQL-Developer 1.5.4 - SQL-Worksheet does not use Table-Owner

    In old versions of the sql-Developer you can drop a Table in the Worksheet and a select Query was built. With the new version 1.5.4 the table-owner is missng and you must fill in the table-owner or the query does not work with tables of other users.
    Is that a bug or are there the posibility of change settings to drop tables in the SQL-worksheet with table-owners.

    The drag and drop functionality was updated so that when you use drag and drop the schema is not prefixed for the current user you are connected to. However it is appended if you drag a table form another connection. It appears to have been overlooked for Other Users. We will address this in a future release. In the meantime,a workaround is to create a connection to the other users and then the drag and drop will append the connection name.

  • SQL Developer not fetching data tables while writting query

    HI , I have recently started using SQL developer 2.1, the problem i face is that SQL DEVELOPER is not showing the tables names while writting the query, we have more than 5000 tables and each table name cannot be remembered.

    I'm using the Mac version of SQL Developer (Version | Build MAIN-64.45) and I'm having similar problems. I'm currently using OS X Snow Leopard.
    The issue does not happen consistently: If I start writing an anonymous block in a new SQL window, the Completion Insight features works well. I can start typing a name of a package (of which there are many in our db) and I'm quickly provided a list matching what I've typed so far. This is also true of variables, functions and procedures within the packages after I type a period following the package name.
    However, if I open an existing package body and start editing, the Completion Insight feature becomes less reliable. If I move my cursor to the beginning of the main block of one of the package body's internal procedures, Completion Insight works. As I move down the package and try to insert new code, Completion Insight stops working. I should note that this package body I'm working with has no errors and compiles fine. I'm not sure what this indicates...whether it's an issue with the editors internal parser or some other issue.
    I'm not sure the best method for starting SQL Developer via the console window on the Mac. I found the following sh file which does launch it from terminal:
    This does launch the application. As I navigate around and follow the instructions you had given (including ctrl-space) I see no output generated out to the console (errors or other messages).
    I'm happy to assist in further debugging. Having Completion Insight work consistently will certainly increase my productivity with the tool.
    Thanks in advance for any help you may provide.

  • SQL*Loader or external table for load a MSG (email) file

    Hi there!
    I'm looking for a way to load an email in a Oracle DB.
    I mean, not all the email's body in a column, but to "parse" it in a multi column/table fashion.
    Is it possible to do with a sql*loader script or an external table?
    I think it is not possible, and that I must switch to XML DB.
    Any idea?

    Why don't you just load the entire MSG (email) as clob into one email_body column or whatever column name you want to use.
    To load data upto 32k, you can use varchar2(32656) but its not a good idea to load clob in that manner because it's very inconsistent as length can
    vary resulting in string literal too long. So you have 2 choices now, first you have to use either procedure or anonymous block to load clob data.
    First Method -- I loaded alert.log successfully and you can imagine how big this file can be (5MB in my test case)
    CREATE OR REPLACE DIRECTORY DIR AS '/mydirectory/logs';
       clob_data   CLOB;
       clob_file   BFILE;
       INSERT INTO t1clob
       RETURNING clob_text INTO clob_data;
       clob_file   := BFILENAME ('DIR', 'wwalert_dss.log');
       DBMS_LOB.fileopen (clob_file);
       DBMS_LOB.loadfromfile (clob_data,
                              DBMS_LOB.getlength (clob_file)
       DBMS_LOB.fileclose (clob_file);
    END;Second Method: Use of Sqlldr
    Example of controlfile
    INFILE alert.log "STR '|\n'"
    REPLACE INTO  table t1clob
       clob_text char(30000000)
    )Hope this helps

  • Accessing MySQL InnoDB tables via JDBC using Oracle SQL Developer

    I had posted a problem in the Oracle SQL Developer forum with how that application (v1.1) accesses MySQL InnoDB tables and someone replied that the "[data migration] team created the integration with MySQL", so I am posting here in hopes of learning more about the problem.
    Here's a summary:
    When I use Oracle SQL Developer to query MySQL InnoDB tables, I need to issue a "commit" before I do each query to ensure that I am getting current results. Otherwise, it appears to be using a snapshot as-of the last commit. Is this a problem with SQL Developer, or a JDBC configuration, or MySQL problem even?

    my mean is that SQL Developer don't show object tables that are defined in user_object_tables or dba_object_tables
    in Tables tree (while other tools such as PL/SQL Developer do it)
    do you know that is there any solution for showing object tables in Table tree in SQL Developer ?

    Any updates on this? I have the same problem. "Types" only shows the object types, but not the tables based on these object types.
