ORA-01410: invalid rowid

gs79 used Ask the Experts™
I got this error when I was doing a massive insert/update on a table (merge). The procedure has multiple procedures with in itself which involves truncating the temp tables, fetching data into temp tables and the some transformations on temp tables before insert/updating the target table..

When I re-ran the procedure again, the error didnt occur..

So what are the circumstances this error occurs? How to catch the erroneous rowid when the error occurs..

Please advice..
