ORA-04043

ORA-04043 object string does not exist

What causes an ORA-04043 error?

An object name was specified that was not recognized by the system. Following are possible causes:

An invalid name for a table, view, sequence, procedure, function, package, or package body was entered. Since the system could not recognize the invalid name, it responded with the message that the named object does not exist. An attempt was made to rename an index or a cluster, or some other object that cannot be renamed.

How Xynomix can help

Check the spelling of the named object and rerun the code. (Valid names of tables, views, functions, etc. can be listed by querying the data dictionary.)
