When I using this statement in Oracle to view the values of a table_name, I got this:


and I got this result

Table does not exist. ORA-00942: table or view does not exist

This means the table values can not be display with SELECT statement?

  • Usually there is no schema named user_tables in Oracle. Did you create such a user/schema? If yes, then show us the create table statement for the table table_name. – a_horse_with_no_name Aug 30 '16 at 6:37

I would try the following statement to retrieve the owner of the object:

select owner, object_name, object_type from ALL_OBJECTS where object_name = 'MEMBER';

Then depending on the result(s) returned you would adjust your statement to something like this:


...and replace <owner> with the owner that was returned in the first statement.


That is not how you select a specific column. Use this:

SELECT table_name FROM user_tables
  • Yes I can list all table_name, but I can not list data value in any table with statement select * from – learnscript Aug 30 '16 at 6:36
