Hi,

Here you have the solution description:

Problem Description:
====================
 
When you create a LOV, the following error occurs:
 
FRM-11901:  Error occurred while trying to create the LOV.


Solution Description:  
=====================  
 
Make sure of the following:
 o  SELECT INTO statement is in the correct syntax.
 o  Block names and item names specified in the statement are valid.  
 
 
Solution Explanation:  
=====================  
 
Use the following syntax for the SELECT INTO statement:  
    SELECT <column names> INTO <item names>
    FROM table
 
For example:  
    SELECT column1, column2 INTO :block1.item1, :block1.item2
    FROM table1  
 
Refer to SELECT INTO Statement in chapter 9, "Language Elements", of the PL/SQL User's Guide and Reference, Version 2.0.    

Solution Description (other possible solution):  
===================================  
 
If the LOV involves selecting a RAW column,
put RAWTOHEX around the column in the SELECT statement.  


Solution Description (other possible solution):
====================================
 
Make sure to grant users and roles privileges to the table.
 
Refer to GRANT(Object Privileges) in chapter 4, "Commands",
of the Oracle7 Server SQL Language Reference Manual.  


Solution Description (other possible solution):
===================================
 
You are getting FRM-11901 creating an LOV  
which is the result of the union of two select statements
 
The following is an example of the syntax:  
 
This select statement works in SQL*PLUS  
  Select dname, loc from dept  
  union  
  select 'Support', 'Belmont' from dual;  
 
When you use the above select statement to create an LOV in  
Oracle Forms, the FRM-11901 error is encountered.  
 
To create an LOV in Oracle Forms using UNION, the syntax of the select  
statement should be:  
  Select dname, loc from dept  
  union  
  select 'Support' dname, 'Belmont' loc from dual;  


I hope this helps you.
