ORA-01410: invalid ROWID tips

Oracle Error Tips by Burleson Consulting (S. Karam)

 

Question: I have a table which is partitioned ,whenever I pass a query I?m getting ORA-01410: invalid ROWID.

 

Answer: The Oracle docs note this on the ora-01410 error:

ORA-01410 invalid ROWID
 
Cause: A ROWID was entered incorrectly. ROWIDs must be entered as formatted hexadecimal strings using only numbers and the characters A through F. A typical ROWID format is '000001F8.0001.0006'.
 
Action: Check the format, then enter the ROWID using the correct format. ROWID format: block ID, row in block, file ID.

The ORA-01410 error can indicate logical data corruption, precipitating a recovery with RMAN.

The format of the rowid is: block id, row in block, file id. If you know the block id, you may be able to use a statement such as:

delete from <table> where rowid like '<block id>%'

Without a recovery of the corruption (ARCHIVELOG mode) or RMAN recovery, Your ONLY Hope to recover from a ORA-01410 error is to use the BBED utility to patch the corrupt blocks and it won't be a cheap or easy fix! It could take days of hard work, depending on the extent of the corruption.

You will need an expert in the Oracle block internals so you will either need to do this with the aid of Oracle technical support (800-223-1711) or a 3rd party expert like my team (800)-766-1884.

Check our links to BBED, in case you understand Oracle block structures.
