Join using external tables

I'm trying to select from three external tables to populate a forth table.
When I run my procedure , I get these error.
What direction do I take to determine the cause of the errors.

seazodiacCommented:
it seems like one of the external table is improperly created.

can you check if the following query can run successfully?

select count(*) from temp_student;

select count(*) from temp_student_code ;
select count(*) from temp_student_email ;

I think that you are using external table in your procedure and somehow your environment variables are messed up.

Could you let us know your OS and Oracle environment variables? You might be able to find some clues from this thread:

The select on the temp_student_code gave the same error.  Thought I had done that query.
Don't go anywhere!
