ORA-04052: error occurred when looking up remote object
Oracle Error Tips by Stephanie F.
The Oracle docs note this on the
error occurred when looking up remote object
An error has occurred when trying to look up a remote object.
Fix the error. Make sure the remote database system has run KGLR.SQL to
create necessary views used for querying/looking up objects stored in
During compilation, a forum poster at
Oracle FAQ's continues to
receive ORA-04052 in a link connection Oracle to Sybase:
I am running the SQL and it works
fine over a dblink while I put the same query inside a cursor and am
creating a procedure there is an error that gets generated during
compilation. The link connects a Oracle system to a Sybase system.
The replier informed the Oracle
user that the problem may be that:
Oracle cannot see the remote object. Try to
enable ODBC tracing on the gateway machine to see what is happening
Given this advice, the original issue
concerning ORA-04052 is resolved, yet with a slightly different problem:
The error for some reason was eliminated
when the owner was removed from the table name reference. I am not sure why
it requires the owner information when the SQL is run but when I put
it into the procedure it does not recognize it. In both cases I am connected
to using the same db link and as the same user.
This only required a simple alteration to the
SQL as the discrepancy in this case needed:
In your registry enter string LOCAL
and in value enter the SID. you don't have to write the owner name
