External Table error Capture!

MIHIR KAR used Ask the Experts™
Hi Expert,

When i'm selecting data from external table getting following error , i want to capture all the error into a log for the error visibility.

ORA-29913: error in executing ODCIEXTTABLEOPEN callout
ORA-29400: data cartridge error
KUP-05002: There are no matching files for any file specification in the LOCATION clause.

--I'm using below pkg for creating message for user

o_error_message := SQL_LIB.CREATE_MSG ('PACKAGE_ERROR',
                                             'ERROR:'|| L_mark || '|' || sqlerrm,
                                              to_char (sqlcode));
--Here the pkg only print the ORA -Error , Here i'm looking for both "ORA" and "KUP" error.

Open in new window

But now only 1st line "' ORA-29913: error in executing ODCIEXTTABLEOPEN callout"  got printed in output. rest of lines are skipped.

Please share the solution for this.

Thanks in Advance!

SQLERRM only gives you the current error, not the full stack of errors.  Look at DBMS_UTILITY.FORMAT_ERROR_STACK.
