Oracle Compilation errors using “show errors” commands – no errors

sometimes when you try to recompile an oracle object such as a “package” for example using the command line in “sqlplus”, you face a message that compiled with errors.

when you type: show errors

in sqlplus , the prompt states “no errors found”.

while actually there are errors and issue with the oracle object, to resolve this either check this oracle object under the schema using TOAD or sqldeveloper and go the “errors” tab and check what exactly is the issue.


use the following query to fetch the error information in sqlplus:

select text from dba_errors where name = ‘[OBJECT_NAME]‘ and owner = ‘[schema_object]‘;

Where [OBJECT_NAME] is then name of Database object which is having the problem.

Where [schema_object] is the name of the schema user.
