FRM-41839: Disk I/O error on temporary record buffer file %s tips

Oracle Error Tips by Stephanie Filio of  Burleson Consulting

Oracle documents offer this information regarding FRM-41839:

FRM-41839: Disk I/O error on temporary record buffer file %s

Cause:  An I/O error occurred on attempting to read or write a record to the temporary record buffer file.

Action:  Verify that the file system or directory in which the file resides exists, and that you have permissions to read and write to it, and that it contains sufficient space.

Internet sources offer information regarding FRM-41839 in Oracle Forms, Version on any platform.  The document advises that an Oracle user should, "set the TMP ( For Windows) and TMPDIR ( For UNIX) environment variable in their default.env file to a valid directory with sufficient space." to avoid error FRM-41839.  

Another user encountered FRM-41839 "when accessing the discrepancy database." In cases such as these, you may want to consider:

This is a known Forms issue that can occur when a query is executed which
will return a large number of records and disk space is limited.

The error is raised when Forms is trying to create a temporary file which
will store the results of the query but there is not enough free disk space
available (on the drive which is assigned to TEMP/TMP).

Either free up enough space on this drive to allow the temporary file to be
created or move the contents of the TEMP directory to a different drive.
