I am migrating a few stored procedures from Sybase to Oracle using Oracle Developer tool. The tool migrates alomost 70%-80% of the stored procedures except a few cases where there is a temporary table created and used inside a stored procedures.

Here is an example:

Existing sybase stored procedure:

CREATE GLOBAL TEMPORARY TABLE tt_RptRCRsn
(
  BatchNo CHAR(12) ,
  RecNo NUMBER ,
  CONTRACT CHAR(9) ,
  DateNotified CHAR(10) ,
  Reason CHAR(20) ,
  LOGIN CHAR(7) ,
  CheckNo CHAR(20) ,
  Amount NUMBER(10,2) ,
  Resolution CHAR(20) ,
  ResolvedDt CHAR(10) ,
  Comment_ VARCHAR2(100) ,
  CW CHAR(1) 
);
/ 

CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE RptRCByRsn
(
  v_BegDT IN DATE DEFAULT NULL ,
  v_EndDt IN DATE DEFAULT NULL ,
  v_C IN CHAR DEFAULT NULL ,
  v_W IN CHAR DEFAULT NULL ,
  v_Res IN CHAR DEFAULT NULL ,
  v_A IN CHAR DEFAULT NULL ,
  v_I IN CHAR DEFAULT NULL ,
  v_E IN CHAR DEFAULT NULL ,
  v_B IN CHAR DEFAULT NULL ,
  v_U IN CHAR DEFAULT NULL ,
  v_M IN CHAR DEFAULT NULL ,
  v_N IN CHAR DEFAULT NULL ,
  cv_1 OUT SYS_REFCURSOR
)

The migrated stored procedure compiles with an error - 'Table or view does not exist' even though global temporary table was created. The migrated proceure is not able to find the global temporary table 'tt_RptRCRsn'.

I tried giving grant all to this stored procedure but still its not compiling,

I dont want to make major modifications to the stored procedure as this is the requirement to keep the migrated code (oracle procedures) as similar as possible to the existing code (Sybase procedures)

Can someone please suggest a solution on how do I achieve this?

Beware that the two commands will be run in the current schema, which is usually the schema that you logged in to.

CREATE GLOBAL TEMPORARY TABLE tt_RptRCRsn
CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE RptRCByRsn

These 6 tables must exist in the same schema

ReturnChk
ChecksWires 
BatchSummary 
RCReason 
RCResolution 
Comments

Also, UTILS.CONVERT_TO_CHAR must exist.

Check that you did not inadvertently create tt_RptRCRsn and RptRCByRsn in some other schema, like SYSTEM, and check that tables ReturnChk, etc. also got created in the correct schema.

I have these other suggestions:

  1. Use data type DATE for input parameters and table columns that contain dates, not character columns.

  2. Consider using VARCHAR2 instead of CHAR.

  3. User longer, more meaningful parameter names, instead of v_A, v_I, v_E, etc.

  4. Beware that if you are using sqlplus, then ";" followed by "/" will cause your create table command to be run twice. The output would look like this:

Table created.

CREATE GLOBAL TEMPORARY TABLE tt_RptRCRsn
                              *
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-00955: name is already used by an existing object

If you are using sqlplus, then use either ";" or "/" for create table, but not both.
