Comments on: Select a blob across a database link, without getting ORA-22992 Friends of Oracle and Java Wed, 24 Jun 2015 09:59:44 +0000 hourly 1 By: elalgarrobosiquesabiacortarelpan Wed, 24 Jun 2015 09:59:44 +0000 I can’t understand how it works but it really works. My database release is – 64bit.
Thank you very much Anton.

I don’t believe that your query is working for small clobs, and that inserting a large clob in your remote table causes an ORA-00942 in your query.

By: Isaac chocron Sun, 04 Nov 2012 09:16:07 +0000 I tested it on our 11R2 (64bits) with a object type based table that contain CLOB.
When the length of the remote CLOB is more of 4000 characters, I received the next oracle error:

1 select message#, (select message from dual) txt from message_from_machine@copy_values
2* where message#= 2557073
SQL> /
ORA-00942: table or view does not exist
