I'm trying to run a query that has a function in it. When I run it i get a permissions error on the function.
when I look up the function, it says it has a "public" owner and an Object type of "synonym."
Forgive, but I'm not an Oracle person by trade.
1. What is a synonym (in as plain of English as possible)?
2. Any significance with it being "public"?
3. I need to request permissions. What do I ask the DBA to grant?
