(Doc ID 1949259.1)

Last updated on JULY 05, 2017

Applies to:

PL/SQL - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Exceptions originating from a pipelined table functions loose the accompanying error message, under some circumstances.

For instance, calling the function via a cursor

Note the missing text after ORA-20999:


Issue does not happen in the following cases:

If a 'built in' error occurs rather than raising a custom one.
If raise_application_error is called before a row is piped.
If the pipeline function is called without using a cursor.
If the pipeline function is called directly from sql.
