ORA-00604: error occurred at recursive SQL level string  tips

Oracle Error Tips by Burleson Consulting


Oracle docs note this about ORA-00604:


ORA-00604: error occurred at recursive SQL level string

Cause: An error occurred while processing a recursive SQL statement (a statement applying to internal dictionary tables).
Action: If the situation described in the next error on the stack can be corrected, do so; otherwise contact Oracle Support.

Many users of the new Oracle 11i find themselves being confronted by ORA-00604.  

On this forum, a user finds ORA-00604 after attempting to run a newly created table using select*from cdc;  The message they are receiving is:

ORA-00604: Une erreur s'est produite au niveau SQL r?ursif 1
ORA-04068: ?at de packages existant rejet?
ORA-04063: package body "SYS.DBMS_CDC_PUBLISH" a des erreurs
ORA-06508: PL/SQL : Impossible de trouver unit?de programme appel?br> ORA-06512: ?ligne 3

They are wondering how to get rid of ORA-00604.

The user found that to resolve ORA-00604, they needed to try re-compiling their DBMS_CDC_PUBLISH package using SYS.  Running this repeatedly until invalid packages no longer show, should clear up any issues throwing ORA-00604.   For more information in this process, you can refer to this article:
