Hi All,
        I have created a table in oracle 9.2.0.5 table name Test columns Id, name.  I have anothe table Audit_test

CREATE TABLE AUDIT_TEST (
   ROW_ID ROWID,
   OWNER VARCHAR2(30),
   TABLE_NAME VARCHAR2(30),
CONSTRAINT VARCHAR2(30));

I have create primay key on the test table like this

ALTER TABLE TEST
ADD CONSTRAINT PK_TEST_ID
PRIMARY KEY(TEST_ID)
EXCEPTIONS INTO AUDIT_TEST;

After that  I have tried to insert into Test table with the same Id  twice like below
INSERT INTO TEST(TEST_ID, TEST_NAME)
VALUES(1,'TEST_1');

It fails to insert into the record but there is no record in Audit_Test. The way I understood the EXCEPTIONS INTO is when ever there is an exception in inserts the record into AUDIT_TEST table but this is not happing.

Can you let me know what does EXCEPTIONS INTO  do and where I am doing wrong.

Thanks,
Cavaturu

well, the "EXCEPTIONS INTO" does not work this way....

It only works when you have an EXISTING condition (in which you have a table loaded with duplicate data).

when you try to enable the UNIQUE or PK, then the exceptioned rows go to audit table.

in order for you to make this work.
you have to disable the PK first.

then insert into a bunch of duplicates into the TEST table.
then enable the PK.

then you will see all the exceptioned rows in AUDIT_TEST Table.

assumeing you have issued

ALTER TABLE TEST
ADD CONSTRAINT PK_TEST_ID
PRIMARY KEY(TEST_ID)
EXCEPTIONS INTO AUDIT_TEST;
