When Others - Exceptions

When Others - Exceptions

(OP)
I know how to trap known Exceptions, but how do I know what Exception occurred in the WHEN OTHERS part?

CODE

EXCEPTION
  WHEN NO_DATA_FOUND THEN
    -- This Project Number is NOT in DB, 
    -- do something here
  WHEN ZERO_DIVIDE THEN
    -- I know what happened here
  WHEN OTHERS THEN
    -- How do I know what has happened here?
    -- Let me know which Exception happened here, please.
END; 

Is there a way to detect it so I can write it to my error log?
So if TOO_MANY_ROWS exception happen, at least I will know that much.

Have fun.

There is a great need for a sarcasm font.

RE: When Others - Exceptions

Hi,
the error number of the most recent error can be found in SQLCODE and the message in SQLERRM. The complete error stack is stored in ora_server_error_msg.
