ORA-20000 to ORA-20999

Message:
ORA-20000: string

Cause:
The stored procedure ‘raise_application_error’ was called which causes this error to be generated.

Action:
Correct the problem as described in the error message or contact the application administrator or DBA for more information.

Explanation:
The procedure RAISE_APPLICATION_ERROR enables PL/SQL code to issue user-defined ORA- codes with a corresponding custom error message.
The range of ORA code numbers allowed for custom error messages is from ORA-20000 to ORA-20999.
If you are receiving an error in that range, then is it a custom error raised in this way, and the reason/cause will depend entirely on the particular program or package being executed, and the same ORA number may be issued by different applications with a different message for different reasons.
