this is usually a version difference problem. probably the toad version you have does not know the data type needed for the query, while your sql plus does.
solution: upgrade the toad

one way to get rid of this issue is to use the latest version of toad if you are not having latest version.

i have faced the same issue with latest toad version but in my case, we login into toad thru a different user but the types got created by another user. The toad user can access the table and so we altered this table to have a new field based on the type we wanted. After this we got errors whenever we try to select data from this table.

So we had to give 'grant execute on my_calendar_type to toad_user;' to get rid of the issue.

Thanks

problem is because of sdo_geometry datatype for one of the columns. I guess the version of toad I am using might not support it. thanks a lot for the support
