ORA-1002 when trying to copy file

When I was trying to copy a file from a data server to the main server, the following error in a select statement occured: "ORA-1002: Message -1002 not found."

The ORA-1002 error message is "fetch out of sequence." Since you received "Message -1002 not found," I can only guess that you do not have your ORACLE_HOME environment variable properly set. If this environment variable is set correctly, then it will find the message file with the message text. And nine times out of 10, this also fixes your problem which threw the error.
