-----------------

ORA-00980 synonym translation is no longer valid

Cause: The synonym used is based on a table, view, or synonym that no longer exists.

Action: Replace the synonym with the name of the object it references or re-create the synonym so that it refers to a valid table, view, or synonym.

********************************************
1)Identify the synonyms that are being used in the code and recreate them..

If you had a synonym called S_EMP to the table emp,then :

create public synonym S_EMP for SCOTT.EMP;
