dba_sys_privs, object does not exist.

I want to check if I have write privileges on a table.

I check this with below sql,

select *
from dba_sys_privs sp
where exists (select 1
              from dba_users
              where username = sp.grantee)
AND privilege like 'INSERT%'

Access to dba_sys_privs ,all_sys_privs ,user_sys_privs to check this information,yields in
object does not exist.

What is the alternative for checking if I can insert into a table
SujithData ArchitectCommented:
YOu can directly select from user_tab_privs to see whether you are granted any insert privileges on the table.
select * from user_tab_privs 
where table_name = '<your table name in upper case>';

As sujith80 suggested, you need to be looking at user/all/dba_tab_privs, not user/all/dba_sys_privs.

I would user user_tab_privs if you are looking for privileges granted to the user you are connected as.
