I am getting ORA-03113 when running a simple query:
select distinct ods_gd_national_package.pkg_qtr_code,'sa' from ods_gd_national_package order by 1 desc, 2 desc;
I have also noticed that if I remove '2 desc' from the query it runs fine. But this code is generated by third-party sofware and we have no control over the SQL generated.
This is most likely a bug. You didn't state which version of Oracle you are running. Is it possible to upgrade to a supported version and/or apply the latest patchset? You can do this without touching the vendors code. If that still does not fix the problem, then you will most likely have to work with the vendor to resolve the issue, since you can't touch their code.
