Having an issue with temp datafile

SQL> select * from dba_temp_files;
ERROR:
ORA-01157: cannot identify/lock data file 202 - see DBWR trace file
ORA-01110: data file 202: 'F:\ORACLE\ORADATA\IWDBT\TEMP01.DBF'

I just ran this query against my database. The path f:\oracle\oradata\iwdbt\ doesn't exist in my environment. How can I get this fixed? The correct path is f:\oracle\oradata\iwdb

These 2 steps should work:

alter database tempfile 'F:\ORACLE\ORADATA\IWDBT\TEMP01.DBF' drop;
alter tablespace <temp_ts> add tempfile 'F:\ORACLE\ORADATA\IWDBF\TEMP01.DBF' size <size>;

You need to substitiute in the tablespace_name for <temp_ts> and the size of the temp file for <size>.

Hope below steps will help

1). Create another temporary tablespace
2). Make this newly created tablespace as default temporary tablespace
3). drop the old temporary tablespace including temp files.
