Symptoms

Package PA_IGT_EXT_API_PUB (PAIGTEAPIB.pls) 120.0.12020000.43

In the query below, the joins to o.link_agreement_status are failing when the column value is NULL. An NVL is required for these joins.

e.g. AND o.link_agreement_status <> 'ASSOCIATED_APPROVED' fails when link_agreement_status is NULL

The statement should be something like AND NVL(o.link_agreement_status,'-1') <> 'ASSOCIATED_APPROVED'

The problem occurs when a condition that should be true returns as false because the join to the table column fails.
An NVL is required when comparing nullable table columns with any other value.
