RE: Why does this "create view" statement fail?

Hi Peter,

thanks, it is working. But the user L2930 has DBA privileges (which includes
select any table).

I thought that direct grants (i.e. not through roles) would only be
necessary with PL/SQL blocks...

Thanks,
Helmut

Hi,
The schema dwhdata needs to grant the select privilege directly to the
schema L2930, for L2930 to be able to create the view.

Hi!

I am experiencing something weird here... I am the user L2930 (with DBA
role).

When I issue a select statement to select data from another user's table, it
works fine:

SQL> select count(beadat) from dwhdata.b3000t;
COUNT(BEADAT)
-------------
            3

Now I want to put that exact select statement in a view:

SQL> create view testview as select beadat from dwhdata.b3000t with read
only;
create view test as select beadat from dwhdata.b3000t with read only
                                               *
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-01031: insufficient privileges

That doesn't make much sense to me... Any ideas?

This is 9.2 on HP-UX 11i.

Thanks,
Helmut
