    You can only have one object with a name in a schema. There is probably another object with the same name.

    Code:
    SELECT owner, object_name, object_type, status
      FROM all_objects
     WHERE object_name='TABLE_POSITION_A_IDX2';
    The other possibility is that if you have the recycle bin on, you could try purging the recycle bin, before creating the index.

    Code:
    PURGE dba_recyclebin;
    If you want to know what indexes exist on a table try this:

    Code:
    SELECT index_owner, index_name, column_name, column_position
       FROM dba_ind_columns
     WHERE table_name='TABLE_POSITION_ADJ'
     ORDER BY 1,2,4;
    this space intentionally left blank
