    If you don't have the log file(s) in question, then you need to:
    re-sync the databases/schema/tables, or
    advance the CSN to a point in time where you do have log files and deal with missing data separately

    Is an archived transaction log missing?
    ● Extract reads the archived logs when an online log is not available. If you started
    Extract after it was stopped for a long time, the records it needs to process might
    already be archived away.
    ● Restore the archive log that is specified in the error message in the report file, and also
    restore all subsequent logs.
    NOTE Extract should not be stopped for a long time. If you must stop Extract, make
    certain that archives are available all the way back to the time that you stopped
    Extract. If Extract remains stopped for an exceptionally long time, it might be more
    practical to resynchronize the table(s) rather than wait for Extract to go through the
    archives and catch up.
  • Make sense. Thanks for the help. I end up refreshing the target schema.
