I created the following stored procedure for
dinamycally execute a DDL Sentence.

procedure ejecuta (sentence  in varchar2)
begin
execute immediate sentence;
end;

And it works well for DML Sentences, but
when I try to execute a DDL sentence like:

create table a (a number);

I receive an ORA-01031: Insufficient Priveleges

But the user that executes and owns the stored
procedure has DBA privileges.

If someone has any idea, please help me, I
will be grateful, if you do so ...

Does the user have CREATE ANY TABLE privilege?  Is it granted to that user through a ROLE, or specifically granted to that user?  If it is through a ROLE, you may have to specifically grant it to that USER.

i.e. Try the following:

GRANT CREATE ANY TABLE TO user_name;

Thank you so much, I didn't realize
that when I'm executing dynamic sql
privileges granted from roles are not valid
they have to be given directly ...

Thanks ...

It's not the dynamic sql, it is the Stored Procedure.  Stored Procedures are created with Owner's Rights.  If you give me the ability to execute a stored procedure in your schema, then I can execute it and it will run just like I have your privileges.  This allows you to give users the ability to access your tables only through the stored procedure (not give any table rights to people, but give them execute on the stored procedures you want, and they can access your tables through the stored procedures).  To make something work in a stored procedure, privileges normally have to be explicitly granted to the user and not granted through a role.
