ORA-00972: Identifier too long - error

Searching experts knowlege base I cannot find the specific scenario that fits my problem.
The SQL is such:
SQL> insert into sys_trading_partner_details_tmp
  2  select * from sys_transaction_type_codes
  3  where sys_transaction_type_code = 'MDI880'
  4  ;
insert into sys_trading_partner_details_tmp
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-00972: identifier is too long
At first i thought it was the length of the table name, but i have since
created another table of equal length.

I could update table manually , but i am trying to perfect a script
to automate a lengthy process.

Please help
Thanks in advance

no, the table name is one character too long, orcale only lets object names be 30 characters or less, yours is 31.
