After trying to join two tables I'm getting an ambiguity error. As far as I can see, I've used the table name with the column name throughout the query. Is there some way to identify the offending statement?

Post the SQL and we might can find it. That error typically means that you are referencing a column in the select statement that could come from two or more tables in the from statement.

Select a.First_Name,
           b.First_Name
From   employees a, spouses b
Where a.spouse_id = b.spouse_id;

If you alias the tables make sure you use the alias throughout the query as well.

Following is the query. I'm VERY new at this and, unfortunately, don't yet understand a lot of the syntax. I've tried to find a resource on point, but haven't had a lot of luck. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

the amount in
          "GL_PACK".DebitAmt(amount) as "DR",  
         "GL_PACK".CreditAmt(amount) as "CR",  
is not qualified
    change to  
         "GL_PACK".DebitAmt( GL_TRANSACTION_VIEW.amount) as "DR",  
         "GL_PACK".CreditAmt(GL_TRANSACTION_VIEW.amount) as "CR",
