Flash back is new feature in ORACLE 10g,
Use: when ever if objects are Droped unexpectedly or by mistake(accidentally) then we can recover through SCN number or time of period we can recover.
Ex:-Flash back table <table_name> before drop;
If table was deleted you get back by issuing above cmd you can get back from recycle bin.
Recyle bin information you will get in..
Kara, you are describing flashback drop (which is based on renaming objects), not flashback query. Flashback query, introduced in 9i, uses undo segments and works like this:
orcl> conn scott/tiger
orcl> select count(*) from emp;
orcl> delete from emp;
14 rows deleted.
orcl> --what did the table look like ten minutes ago?
orcl> select count(*) from emp as of timestamp (systimestamp -10/1440);
orcl> --so now I can repair the damage
orcl> insert into emp select * from emp as of timestamp (systimestamp -10/1440);
14 rows created.
Thanks for correcting me
Thanx, Keneth and Kara
