ORA-00942 error during insert/update operations

I am getting the following error while the application is doing insert/update operations:

ORA-00604: error occurred at recursive SQL level 1
ORA-00942: table or view does not exist

However, the application is working fine while doing select operations.

This is a Java application, and it is using the JDBC to connect to the Oracle 8.1.7 server. I have done the update operation through the SQL*Plus prompt, and it is working fine.

In order to fix this problem, you'll have to know which recursive SQL statement is causing the ORA-00942 error message. I just covered this topic last week in the following question:,289625,sid41_cid608827_tax294550,00.html
