Hi,

try :
SELECT *
FROM (SELECT DISTINCT substr(PARENT, 3) division
      FROM wwglph2.wwgl_dv_tree
      CONNECT BY PRIOR child = PARENT
      START WITH PARENT = 'D-SAC'
      UNION ALL
      SELECT DISTINCT substr(PARENT, 3) division
      FROM wwglph2.wwgl_dv_tree
      CONNECT BY PRIOR child = PARENT
      START WITH PARENT = 'D-INS')
ORDER BY 1

or
( not sure if this one will work )

SELECT DISTINCT substr(PARENT, 3) division
FROM wwglph2.wwgl_dv_tree
CONNECT BY PRIOR child = PARENT
START WITH PARENT IN ('D-SAC', 'D-INS')
ORDER BY 1

Select division from
(
SELECT distinct substr(parent,3) division
         FROM wwglph2.wwgl_dv_tree
   CONNECT BY prior child = parent
   START WITH parent  = 'D-SAC'
)
union all
Select division from
(
SELECT distinct substr(parent,3) division
         FROM wwglph2.wwgl_dv_tree
   CONNECT BY prior child = parent
   START WITH parent  = 'D-INS'
)
ORDER BY 1
