- updates the same primary keys within some workspaces, just to be sure that some workspaces has conflicts
- run dbms_wm.refreshtable using a where clause to refresh only the affected records
- display a message whenever there are conflicts.

The refreshtables is executed within a loop to be performed on every workspace, and at some point it raises
