Help: Trigger -Not able to delete data from trigger table.

P: 2

I'm facing oracle trigger problem. Anyone can help or advise how to resolve it?

Below are the explaination on my problem

I've created a trigger for my program. When there is a new data insert into table moto_pvs_pulse_daily_yield_tmp, my program will checking and copy the data by each row and insert into table mt_pulse_daily_yield_tmp which is in other instance.

After I success insert into table mt_pulse_daily_yield_tmp, I need to delete the data in the original table (moto_pvs_pulse_daily_yield_tmp), but I'm getting the error as below:

ORA-04091: table MOTOPVS_OWN.MOTO_PVS_PULSE_DAILY_YIELD_TMP is mutating, trigger/function may not see it

Here are my code:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. CREATE OR REPLACE TRIGGER moto_pvs_pulse_daily_yield_trg after INSERT ON moto_pvs_pulse_daily_yield_tmp FOR EACH ROW
  3.      v_sql_error        moto_pvs_db_error.ora_error%TYPE;
  5. BEGIN
  6.         IF :NEW.board_yield >= 0 THEN
  7.             insert into mt_pulse_daily_yield_tmp --MotoTrak Table
  8.             (factory_id,line_id,board_item_number,manufactory_day,panel_yield,board_yield,insert_datetime)
  9. values
  10. (:NEW.factory_id,:NEW.line_id,:NEW.board_item_number,:NEW.manufactory_day,:NEW.panel_yield,:NEW.board_yield,:NEW.insert_datetime);
  14. ELSE
  16. VALUES
  19. END IF;   
  23.     v_sql_error := SQLERRM;
  24.     INSERT INTO moto_pvs_db_error (from_procedure, error_date, message, ora_error)
  27. END moto_pvs_pulse_daily_yield_trg;

P/S: I believed this line is "DELETE MOTO_PVS_PULSE_DAILY_YIELD_TMP;" is caused the problem. but how to resolve it? Is really highly appreciate if anyone can advise me. Thank you very much.

This Error is caused because the TRIGGER is trying to perform DML operation on the table on which it is based upon.

Thanks for your quick response. I had read through the solution url you provide, but still not really understand how to resolve the problem. Can I delete the data for it own table in the trigger itself?

Follow the below steps:

1. Create a Package Spec that will have two Arrays (one will hold the ROWID of the newly inserted value and the second one is to reset the first one else u can also use empty constructor)

2. Create a BEFORE INSERT statement LEVEL TRIGGER ON MOTOPVS_OWN.MOTO_PVS_PULSE_DAILY_YIELD_TMP to bring the Package to its consistent state and initialisze the NULL Varray.

3. Create a After INSERT ROWLEVEL on MOTOPVS_OWN.MOTO_PVS_PULSE_DAILY_YIELD_TMP to get the ROWID of the newly inserted row.

4. Create a AFTER INSERT statement level on MOTOPVS_OWN.MOTO_PVS_PULSE_DAILY_YIELD_TMP and use the ROWID in the package VARRAY to insert that row in to mt_pulse_daily_yield_tmp table.
Then delete the Row in MOTOPVS_OWN.MOTO_PVS_PULSE_DAILY_YIELD_TMP after it is inserted in to mt_pulse_daily_yield_tmp table.

This should work. Let me know if it does not.
