CREATE VIEW with FORCE does not work

Yesterday I loaded an oracle dump in our database... and guess what? Not all the views were created. I took a look into the impdp log and I saw some errors complaining that: ORA-00980: synonym translation is no longer valid. So what? The CREATE VIEW statements were issued with the FORCE clause therefore it should have been created, right?

Well, after some diggings on metalink I found this. It basically says that there is a(nother) bug and according to their description: create force view using a synonym for a table fails to create the view if the synonym is invalid. The and databases are confirmed to be affected and this bug is supposed to be fixed in and 11.2.

In my case, the solution was to fix the synonyms problem and after that to reimport just the views using the INCLUDE parameter of the impdp utility.
