ORA-00904, as we know, indicates an invalid or nonexistent column name.

My guess is somebody has modified the table at one of your sites, without
using the appropriate replication package to distribute the change to all
sites. Check to see if the FLOWGATE_INFO column is defined consistently in
all masters (or if it is missing).

This is one of the many practical reasons we decided to move away from
Oracle's traditional advanced replication methodology and are instead
looking at streams. It is simply not scalable, and requires an
extraordinary level of control and administration to maintain.

Subject: Error while running DBMS_RECTIFIER_DIFF.DIFFERENCES

I am using DBMS_RECTIFIER_DIFF.DIFFERENCES to find the data difference
between two tables and receiving the following errors.
Does anybody know what could be the reason. The structure of both the tables
is exactly similar. I am not getting any error when I run the MINUS between
two tables...
Any suggestions..
