To minimize the size of error table rows, the system stores only the IDs of fields and users, not their names. To determine the names associated with the stored field IDs and user IDs, you can run queries against the DBC.Tables3VX view.

For example,

SELECT TableName, FieldName, ETC_ErrorCode
FROM DBC.Tables3VX, ET_myerrtbl
WHERE TableId = ETC_TableId
AND   FieldId = ETC_FieldId
AND   ETC_DBQL_QID = 385520516506583068;


Request element … Specifies …
ET_myerrtbl the default system-generated name of the error table for base table myerrtbl, for which you want to retrieve table and column names.
385520516506583068 the unique DBQL query ID for this request.
