Known Causes

This error may occur as a result of an existing synonym named mvt_document_history.


  • Run the following query from the MarkView Schema.
    select *
        from user_objects
    where object_name = 'MVT_DOCUMENT_HISTORY' 
        and object_type = 'SYNONYM'; 
  • Restart the Installer which should now succeed.
  • Prior to starting the Installer in your next environment drop the synonym which will prevent the Installer from failing midway through.
