    Question ORA-00911: invalid character while typing select name from v$tempfile;

    Hi,

    I am getting strange errors while accessing the V$ views each time I access them throws me some or the other error why Oracle behaves like this?

    Oracle: 9.2.0.7
    Unxi :Aix5.2

    SQL> select name from v$tempfile;
    select name from v$tempfile
    *
    ERROR at line 1:
    ORA-00911: invalid character


    SQL> select Name from v$tempfile;

    NAME
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    /u07/oradata/sreport/wsadatatemp02.dbf
    /u06/oradata/srep/wsadatemp01.dbf
    /u10/oradata/sreport/wsadatatemp03.dbf.dbf

    SQL> select name from v$tempfile;
    select name from v$tempfile
    *
    ERROR at line 1:
    ORA-00911: invalid character

    After a while it works fine,

    SQL> select name from v$tempfile;

    NAME
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    /u07/oradata/sreport/wsadatatemp02.dbf
    /u06/oradata/srep/wsadatemp01.dbf
    /u10/oradata/sreport/wsadatatemp03.dbf.dbf


    but why does this keeps hapening each time when I exit and login again with sqlplus "/ as sysdba" into oracle for the first time it throws me this kind of errors
