inserting data into remote SQL server.

Fails, with

SQL Error: ORA-02025: all tables in the SQL statement must be at the remote database
02025. 00000 -  "all tables in the SQL statement must be at the remote database"
*Cause:    The user's SQL statement references tables from multiple databases.
           The remote database is not Oracle V7 or above, and can perform
           updates only if it can reference all tables in the SQL statement.

Does anyone know of a work around.

Note: the remote table has fields that cannot be null

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

you may have to retrieve the local values first then insert them.

bulk operations if possible, iterate if necessary

I've also tried the following, which does not work either, the block completes, but no data at remote table, my local and remote tables are have identical column names and types.


DECLARE
CURSOR remote_insert IS SELECT * FROM RMOTRI;
BEGIN
FOR rec IN remote_insert LOOP
INSERT INTO cxprddta.rmotri@E (OTRCUSCHN,OTRCUSNUM,OTRSUBCUS,OTRDELDTE,
OTRLODDTE,OTRPCKDTE,OTRRTENUM,OTRSUBRTE,
OTRPURNUM,OTRITMNUM,OTRCOMTYP,OTRSLSTYP,
OTRSEQNUM,OTRTRNQTY,OTRORWQTY,OTRTRNPRC,
OTRORDTYP,OTRDYSSTR,OTRUPCNUM,OTRCUSITM,
OTRUPCTYP,OTRSTATUS,OTRERRMSG,OTRPRCUSR,
OTRPRCDTE,OTRPRCTIM,X_UPID,X_RRNO)

are you doing a commit when you run the pl/sql block?
Steve WalesSenior Database AdministratorCommented:
As sdstuber mentioned, did you commit after the PL/SQL block.

From the documentation, this is a restriction on remote calls - the issue is with what they call CALLBACK LINKS:

http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/server.112/e11050/majfeat.htm#CIHECAIE

The work around they suggest is exactly what you've done with the PL/SQL block.  If it wasn't committed, it wouldn't appear in the remote database.

You don't say if you're using the Generic ODBC Gateway or the SQL Server specific Gateway, but they but they both say the same thing:

Generic ODBC: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/gateways.112/e12070/feature.htm#ODBCU764
SQL Server: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/gateways.112/e12069/ch3.htm#GMSWN839
FutureDBA-Author Commented:
its sql server gateway.. it seems to work, but the performance is a huge issue. on an insert, for me to insert 1200 records it would take me a few seconds,

same insert with the pl/sql block is taking about a minute.
sdstuberCommented:
did you try bulk operation  (BULK COLLECT local,  FORALL insert )  ?

I've not tried FORALL INSERT across a gateway but if performance is a problem it's worth attempting


if your column name, order,type is the same local and remote then it might look something like this...


DECLARE
    TYPE rmotri_tab IS TABLE OF rmotri%ROWTYPE;

    v_tab rmotri_tab;
BEGIN
    SELECT *
      BULK COLLECT INTO v_tab
      FROM rmotri;

    FORALL i IN v_tab.FIRST .. v_tab.LAST
        INSERT INTO cxprddta.rmotri@e
             VALUES v_tab(i);

    COMMIT;
END;
