When executing insert statement which using log errors reject limit, if mulutibyte special characters are included in table name, ORA-911 is caused.

 

SQL> create table "A・B" (c1 number);

Table created.

insert into "A・B" select 1 from dual log errors reject limit

This is caused only when table name includes special multibyte characters, like "・" (U+30FB).

Also, when mulitibyte characters and singlebyte special characters are inluded in table name, ORA-942 is caused.


create table "<MB>(<MB>)" (c1 number);

SQL> insert into "<MB>(<MB>)" select * from testmh log errors reject limit unlimited;
insert into "<MB>(<MB>)" select * from testmh log errors reject limit unlimited
*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-00942: table or view does not exist

  

 * <MB> means multibyte character in this example.
