paula, by any chance you dont have a thick client like powerbuilder or microsoft ADO access involved int eh transaction ? i've seen this error on access from a thick client becuase of microsoft transaction server auto commit internally. ----- Original Message ---- From: Paula Stankus <paulastankus@xxxxxxxxx> To: oracle-l@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Saturday, June 24, 2006 2:25:41 AM Subject: Re: ORA-02041 Guys, We are running on Oracle 8.1.7 and we have database links to another 8.1.7. Finally when we query objects over the database links within a stored procedure (that has no rollbacks/commits but only had selects and a cursur) we get ORA-02041. It looks like it might be a bug. Has anyone dealt with this one before? Thanks, Paula Yahoo! Messenger with Voice. PC-to-Phone calls for ridiculously low rates.
