If you database version is really 8i, then Oracle does not support the ANSI join syntax until Oracle 9.

In Oracle 8, you get:

SQL> select * from dual a inner join dual b on (a.dummy = b.dummy);
select * from dual a inner join dual b on (a.dummy = b.dummy)
                     *
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-00933: SQL command not properly ended

In Oracle 9, you get:

SQL> select * from dual a inner join dual b on (a.dummy = b.dummy);

This is what i am trying..
SELECT mp.a,mp.b        
  FROM M_V_S mvs , M_P mp
  INNER JOIN M_P mp ON (mvs.key_id = mp.key_id)
  ORDER BY a,b;

it says...expecting equals near INNER....

Oops, i didnt notice that the question was asked specifically for 8i and just went along with the zones that said Oracle 8.x / Oracle 9.x. No personal hands-on on 8i, but if John says so after trying it, then it would have to be true.
