Error ORA-00942 in db13 -> UpdateStats

Hello Guys,

we experience one Error in two (QAS and Prod) of our ERP Systems.

When scheduling job UpdateStats in DB13 we got following error:

BR0301W SQL error -942 at location BrStatsJobCheck-1, SQL statement:


ORA-00942: table or view does not exist

I searched the notes but found only DBA_SCHEDULER_JOBS in association with Oracle 10g, but this is a Oracle 9.

Here are some additional informations :

    Hi Macro,

    Cause: The table or view entered does not exist, a synonym that is not allowed here was used, or a view was referenced where a table is required. Existing user tables and views can be listed by querying the data dictionary. Certain privileges may be required to access the table. If an application returned this message, the table the application tried to access does not exist in the database, or the application does not have access to it.

    Action: Check each of the following:

    the spelling of the table or view name.

    that a view is not specified where a table is required.

    that an existing table or view name exists.

    Contact the database administrator if the table needs to be created or if user or application privileges are required to access the table.

    Also, if attempting to access a table or view in another schema, make certain the correct schema is referenced and that access to the object is granted.

      Hello Rahul,

      Thanks for the answer, but this is the standart Updatestats which you can select in the DB13.

      Nothing is changed.

      So the question is, why use the brtools the DBA_SCHEDULER_JOBS Table, when it's only recognized in Oracle 10 (I think so)

    Seems like an error with the OPS$ Users.... read SAP Note 400241

    Hu Guys,

    OPS$ user was correct.

    But we've found an incorrect installation of the whole systems.

    We've exported both systems and imported them again (homogenous Systemcopy).

    Now both systems are OK.


    a lot
