    Here is what I came up with. Its probably not the most elegant code,
    but here it is anyway.

    Code:
    select file_id, file_name, tablespace_name 
      from ( select rownum rank, file_id, 
                    file_name, tablespace_name 
               from ( select file_id, file_name, tablespace_name 
                        from dba_data_files 
                       order by 1 desc ) 
              order by FILE_ID asc ) 
     where rank in (3,4) 
     order by file_id;
    Analytics would yield a cleaner solution though.
    this space intentionally left blank
