PL/SQL Blocks

P: n/a
I'm the user of an oracle data base, recently, the dba installed a
patch on the data base and we got problems couse the aplications
couldn't do any insert or select; the desition was to remove the patch
and leave the data base as it was orginally, it was done but one of
the binaries is not working properly and the technical support of the
aplication told me that maybe the use of PL/SQL Blocks was affected by
the install/uninstall of the patch. Im not strong in PL/SQL so I don't
know what it means, could you give me any clue?

I'm afraid we can't help much with so little information.

Let's say someone changed a part on your car, and it started to make a funny
noise.
You take it back to the garage, and they take out the part they changed.
But you still have problems. How do you fix the car?

Pls provide any error message you get (noise description), patch number
(part) they installed/deinstalled.

And what is the binary you're talking about? Does it belong to Oracle or
your application?

Could you give more details as to how this binary "is not working
properly" (error message, version, ...). If you want to see any
invalid PL/SQL stored in the database, take a look at STATUS in
DBA_OBJECTS, and look for anything "INVALID" for
procedures/functions/packages/package bodies (for OBJECT_TYPE). You
can try to compile anything invalid using "alter
procedure/function/... compile", and issue a "show errors" if it
fails, to see the reason why it wouldn't compile. That's all I can
advise, based on the skeleton of info you provided.
