The problem is that your parameter names and placeholders are vaild for SQL Server, but not for Oracle. Oracle looks for a leading colon rather than an ampersand. Change your code to this, and it should fix this error.

tables = Session["tables1"].ToString();
string source = (string)Session["source"];
conn = new OracleConnection(source);
string schemaOwner = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["SchemaOwner"].ToString();
oraclecommand = new OracleCommand("select column_name,data_length,data_type from all_tab_columns where table_name = :TableName and owner = :SchemaOwner order by column_name",conn);
conn.Open();
oraclecommand.Parameters.AddWithValue(":TableName", tables.ToString());
oraclecommand.Parameters.AddWithValue(":SchemaOwner", schemaOwner);
OracleDataAdapter da = new OracleDataAdapter(oraclecommand);
DataSet ds = new DataSet();
da.Fill(ds);
