    Issue:

    When sampling a database, we are seeing the following error- ORA-22950: cannot ORDER objects without MAP or ORDER method. 

    Environment:
    CA Test Data Manager (TDM)- Datamaker, Oracle
    Cause:

    Development has confirmed that the product is currently working as designed. When Datamaker detects a column that it cannot profile, it will flag it and ignore it, then move onto the next one. Sampling will complete for all tables and then a message about a log file will be provided for the columns that were not profiled. 

    Resolution:

    Here is the resolution from Oracle. We recommend working with your DBA to accomplish this.

    Cause: Object types must have map or order methods defined for all comparisons other than equality and inequality comparisons. 
    Action: Define a map or order method for the object type.
