Symptoms

In Oracle Financial Services Analytical Applications (OFSAA) infrastructure, you cannot run the Excel Upload to load data from a spreadsheet into tables in the OFSAA database.  When you go to Excel Utilities > Excel Upload, select the Excel File and the Mapping, and click on "Upload", the following error appears on the screen:

Failed to upload data into <table name>. Error is:java.sql.SQLSyntaxErrorException: ORA-00942: table or view does not exist

A similar error occurs on in the Excel Upload log in /<ftpshare>/STAGE/ExcelUpload/logs:

[ETL-EXCELUPLOAD]Error while uploading Record Number: 1
Exception---!
java.sql.SQLSyntaxErrorException: ORA-00942: table or view does not exist


This error prevents users from loading data into the tables.

The Excel Upload has never worked in this environment.  All Excel Mappings get the same error.
