You can only select the nextval like that in 10g or above.

Are you on 10g?

From a previous question of yours you are using

You will need to select the nextval into a variable and insert that variable.

If you are doing this insert statement outside code of code where you can create and use a variable, you will need to write a before insert trigger to populate CODIGOAPLICACIONFONDO.

I also notice your select query only inserts 4 columns, but you have 5 columns specified in your insert

change your select to something like this...

and then also make sure you are inserting the right number of columns
either remove a column from the insert or select an additional column

SELECT seq_codigoaplicacionfondotmp.NEXTVAL, aplipor, aplicodprod, aplicacred
  FROM (SELECT aplicacionporcentaje1 AS aplipor,
               aplicacioncodproducto1 AS aplicodprod,
               aplicacioncredito1 AS aplicacred
          FROM tmp_solicitud
         WHERE    aplicacionporcentaje1 IS NOT NULL
               OR aplicacioncodproducto1 IS NOT NULL
               OR aplicacioncredito1 IS NOT NULL
        SELECT aplicacionporcentaje2 AS aplipor,
               aplicacioncodproducto2 AS aplicodprod,
               aplicacioncredito2 AS aplicacred
          FROM tmp_solicitud
         WHERE    aplicacionporcentaje2 IS NOT NULL
               OR aplicacioncodproducto2 IS NOT NULL
               OR aplicacioncredito2 IS NOT NULL
        SELECT aplicacionporcentaje5 AS aplipor,
               aplicacioncodproducto5 AS aplicodprod,
               aplicacioncredito5 AS aplicacred
          FROM tmp_solicitud
         WHERE    aplicacionporcentaje5 IS NOT NULL
               OR aplicacioncodproducto5 IS NOT NULL
               OR aplicacioncredito5 IS NOT NULL) s

sdstuber is correct with the subselect.  

Forget my post.  To be honest I cannot remember what version of Oracle allows the use of NEXVAL on an insert into select statement.
