    Queries allowed on fixed table

    Hi,

    I've mounted my database,when i give the follwing query,'Select * from v$database;",it works,but when i give the query,"select * from dba_data_files;",it gives the following error,

    ORA-01219:database not open:queries allowed on fixed tables/views only.

    Just clear me,
    1. What are the tables/views internally marked as fixed by ORACLE & on what basis ORACLE does this marking?
    2. What is meant by fixed table/view?


    Thanks,
    Malru

    dba_data_files => data dictionary => tablespace system => datafiles

    datafiles cannot be read when database is mounted and not opened

    Hi,
    Check v$fixed_table for the list. It holds the list of base tables and views.
