    Unanswered: duplicate ROW_IDs

    Hi,

    Is there a way to find out the rows that have duplicate row_id's across a schema? I have many records with same ROW_IDs within a schema but in different tables.

    Pls advise.

    Above would be a nonsensical exercise.
    What do you plan on doing with the results

    So what?
    ROWID is only meaningful WITHIN a table.

    When all else fails, Read The Fine Manual.
    Native Datatypes

    Physical Rowids

    Physical rowids provide the fastest possible access to a row of a given table.

    Why stop with just ROWID?
    I am sure that you have duplicate dates within multiple tables.
    You could waste more time learning where these "duplicates" reside, too.
