  PLS-00753 error tips

Oracle Database Tips by Donald BurlesonApril 10, 2015

Question:  I am getting the PLS-00753 error when I wrap and then compile a PL/SQL package:

SQL> show errors

Errors for PACKAGE BODY xxx:


-------- -----------------------------------------------------------------
0/0 PLS-00753: malformed or corrupted wrapped unit

The package compiled without error, but I get the PLS-00753 upon execution.  How do I fix this PLS-00753 error? 

Answer: The oerr utility shows this for the PLS-00753 error:

PLS-00753: Malformed or corrupted wrapped unit.

Cause:  The format of the wrapped unit being compiled is not understood by the compiler. This may be because the unit was edited or modified after it was wrapped.

Action:  Rewrap the unit.

Also see my notes on the wrap utility and MOSC  Note 362164.1

It can be that wrapped packages were extracted from one database and loaded to another computer with different NLS settings. Resolution is to ensure that the NLS settings on both computers match.  You can also see the PLS-00753 error if you revoke the "public" privilege from utl_file and you can re-grant public to utl_file:

grant all on utl_file to public;

Note:  The PLS-00753 error can happen when the PL/SQL being wrapped has trailing spaces on any line.

Also see MOSC Note 470366.1 titled "Permissions for Packages DBMS_RANDOM, UTL_FILE, UTL_HTTP, UTL_SMTP and UTL_TCP"
