ORA-04088: error during execution of trigger 'string.string' tips

Oracle Error Tips by Stephanie F.

 

The Oracle docs note this on the ora-04088 error:

ORA-04088 error during execution of trigger 'string.string'
 
Cause: A runtime error occurred during execution of a trigger.
 
Action: Check the triggers which were involved in the operation.

A user encounters ORA-06512 and ORA-04088 while attempting to create a custom trigger as follows:

1 CREATE OR REPLACE TRIGGER hari_dt
2 BEFORE INSERT
3 ON
4 hari
5 FOR EACH ROW
6 DECLARE
7 v_name varchar2(20);
8 BEGIN
9 v_name :=upper(:new.name);
10 insert into hari values(v_name);
11* end;
12 /


Trigger created.

SQL> insert into hari values('harindar');
insert into hari values('harindar')
*

ERROR at line 1:

The problem concerning ORA-04088 is resolved when the user is informed that

The problem lies with the fact that you are inserting a row in the trigger which has to fire before insert, the trigger is causing itself to fire over and over and over and getting stuck in a loop.

Remove line which includes the insert.
