Hi!

Through a debug-mode in the application I am working with, I found that the information was stored in a table(?) called anvandare.

In sqldeveloper where I have high privilieges, I can query the table in a window e.g. like this

select * from anvandare

However it does not appear when I make a query like this

SELECT * FROM USER_OBJECTS
WHERE OBJECT_NAME LIKE '%anv%'

or  in the list of all table in sqldeveloper.

 

Question:

1. What could be the possible reason for the non-appearence of the table be?

try dba_tables

or, is it a synonym pointing to other tables?

Since you do not appear to own it, my guess is that it is a synonym.  Since it didn't show up in USER_OBJECTS, it is probably a public synonym.  If it is not showing in USER_OBJECTS, I would be looking at ALL_OBJECTS.

Perhaps my fellow experts are overlooking that you are specifying a lower case string....  try one more time with:

SELECT OWNER, OBJECT_NAME FROM SYS.ALL_OBJECTS
WHERE OBJECT_NAME LIKE UPPER('%ANV%')
ORDER BY 1,2
/

Also, a courtesy reminder that USER_ returns those objects in one's own schema; ALL_ adds those other schemas' objects to which you have been granted SELECT privilege; and DBA_ returns all objects in the data dictionary but requires DBA system privilege to do so.

Hi!

ANVANDARE had the object_type SYNONYM and I found it when I queried SYS.ALL_OBJECTS. Now, I can go on Learning more about SYNONYMS. Thanks a lot.
