it means you have no room in the oracle tablespace (users).
all files arrived at either their max size, or are not autogrowth enabled.
or, the disk all the datafiles are on is full indeed.

there is no error with the statement itself.

Your USERS tablespace is full. Either extend it or add datafiles, or create PACKLIST in a different tablespace.

We usually don't create much in USERS anyway, it is usually for small experiments, user specific tables, etc.

You could do this, but it requires DBA privs:

alter table users add datafile '/ora/oradata/ORA1/users02.dbf' size 100m;


Or you could change the create statement to put in another tablespace (DATA) for example:

create table packlist (
 ...
) tablespace data;


What are your tablespaces?

Hi, actually angelIII made a good point. You may also want to add autoextend to your tablespaces.
