CA Test Data Manager (TDM)- Subset


The ORA-01000: maximum open cursors exceeded error will occur when an Oracle database runs out of open cursors.  A cursor is a pointer to a private SQL area that stores information about the processing of a SELECT or data manipulation language (DML) statement (INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, or MERGE). Cursor management of DML statements is handled by the Oracle Database.


To resolve this issue you will need to increase the number of open cursors available on your Oracle database.  Please discuss this with your DBA and they will be able to do this for you. The below Oracle knowledge documents will guide you through the process of increasing your cursors.
