When this query runs, it sometimes was fine, but it sometimes produced this error.  Please advise.

The v_ban_list that is being pulled contains more than 1,000 items.  There is a restriction in Oracle that and in list can only contain 1,000 items.

One way round this is to create a global temporary table and load the individual items of the list into that table and then instead of using an in list, use a sub query.

yes this works.
and another way to work is to change 500 to 250, which works fine too.
