sqlplus rem line parsed like command
Posted on 2007-10-16
I am trying to install the patch (5337014) to take RDBMS 10.2.0 to 10.2.3. The install instructions call for the installation of an ancillary patch 5601428 to fix a time-zone problem before the patchset is installed. The patch 5601428 loads a sql script to $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin called utltzuv2.sql. I have tried to run this script from sqlplus with
and I get the SP2-0552 error that the bind variable "REM" is not declared. I got the same error earliier for the string 'MODIFY" in a rem line, but I deleted the string.
Can anybody tell me what's going on here? 'rem' or 'remark' are supposed to denote comment lines. It seems like I'm doing everything correctly from the documentation. Can anybody suggest what I'm doing wrong?
