Recently we have migrated our database from oracle 7
to oracle 8. After this I am facing a problem in one
of my purge program which deletes the records based
on the rowid. What I would like to know is whether
the rowid gets changed to the new Oracle 8 format as and when we access the rows, or its changed at the time of migration? Tx in advance.

Hi, After mirgration in Oracle 8, you need to change your code where you are using ROWID in coding, because Oracle 8 ROWID is different from Oracle 7. you can use DBMS_ROWID built-in package for getting same rowid format.
all the best and try it.
