Re: ERROR: SAVE Undo Block Corrupted. Error Code = 50

Yes.  Originally I thought your system table space had just one datafile.
So I didn't bother.

Now thinking further I should update the script to allocate to a data file
- it might be handy if there are numerous data files in that Tablespace.
But that would also require to alter the table such that it wouldn't
allocate more space in other datafile during the insert code.

Thanks for noticing it.
