I am trying to create a trigger that inserts a record in table c that is created on table b after dml is performed on table a. If that is confusing let me try this: there are 3 tables, table 1 has records, table 2 creates records everytime a user performs dml on table 1, table 2 is a log table that is used to refresh data in a fast refresh materialized view. So whenever a refresh occurs that table gets purged. I want to keep the records in that table. So I created another table (table 3) and I want the records in table 2 to be written to table 3 whenever a dml statement is done a record in table 1. I am not sure of what the most efficient way of doing this. I have tried the following:

create or replace trigger MVIEW_HOLDINGS_T
AFTER INSERT OR UPDATE OR DELETE ON HOLDINGS
begin
insert into FAST_UPDATE_INDEX (site, name, SNAPTIME$$, DMLTYPE$$, OLD_NEW$$,
 CHANGE_VECTOR$$) VALUES (site, name, SNAPTIME$$, DMLTYPE$$, OLD_NEW$$, CHANGE_VECTOR$$) from MLOG$_HOLDINGS where name.holdings=pdf_name.MLOG$_HOLDINGS and site.holdings=site.MLOG$_HOLDINGS;
end;
/

I type show errors and get the following: Errors for TRIGGER MVIEW_BIB_HOLDINGS_T:

LINE/COL ERROR
-------- -----------------------------------------------------------------
2/1      PL/SQL: SQL Statement ignored
2/174    PL/SQL: ORA-00933: SQL command not properly ended

could someone tell me what is wrong?

create or replace trigger MVIEW_HOLDINGS_T
AFTER INSERT OR UPDATE OR DELETE ON HOLDINGS
begin
insert into FAST_UPDATE_INDEX (site, name, SNAPTIME$$, DMLTYPE$$, OLD_NEW$$,
 CHANGE_VECTOR$$) VALUES (site, name, SNAPTIME$$, DMLTYPE$$, OLD_NEW$$, CHANGE_VECTOR$$) from MLOG$_HOLDINGS where name.holdings=pdf_name.MLOG$_HOLDINGS and site.holdings=site.MLOG$_HOLDINGS;
end;

not VALUES, but SELECT:
create or replace trigger MVIEW_HOLDINGS_T
AFTER INSERT OR UPDATE OR DELETE ON HOLDINGS
begin
insert into FAST_UPDATE_INDEX (site, name, SNAPTIME$$, DMLTYPE$$, OLD_NEW$$,
 CHANGE_VECTOR$$) 
  SELECT site, name, SNAPTIME$$, DMLTYPE$$, OLD_NEW$$, CHANGE_VECTOR$$ 
    FROM MLOG$_HOLDINGS 
   WHERE name.holdings=pdf_name.MLOG$_HOLDINGS 
     AND site.holdings=site.MLOG$_HOLDINGS;
end;

you are missing a join  in the query, indeed..
also, you don't refer to the NEW / OLD information to limit the rows to be inserted...
