SQL Question

Pro*C can't force parallel DML while sqlplus can?

Whenever I issue 'alter session force parallel DML;' from Pro*C I get an error. Although, it works fine from sqlplus for the same user. Is there any reason for that?


This isn't directly related to Pro*C. The error ORA-12841: Cannot alter the session parallel DML state within a transaction happened in Pro*C because it had already performed DML, whereas a new SQL*Plus session did not. Moving the COMMIT or the ALTER statement should resolve the issue.
