ORA-01436: CONNECT BY loop in user data

Lets assume our data is:

select * from emp;














when we execute a hierarchical query, it throws an error as

select empno, ename, sys_connect_by_path(ename,' -> ') tree from emp connect by prior empno=mgrno;










To trace this error of Connet by loop using connect_by_iscycle, we may execute following query:

select emp.*, connect_by_iscycle from emp where connect_by_iscycle = 1 connect by nocycle prior empno=mgrno;









and now we can correct this cyclic loop as:

update emp set mgrno=2497 where empno=3061;

and execute our previous hierarchical query

select empno, ename, sys_connect_by_path(ename,' -> ') tree from emp connect by prior empno=mgrno;
