I'm getting an error.  I've researched it but still not sure what to do.

I run...

select dbms_metadata.get_ddl ('PACKAGE_BODY','<<package name>>') from dual

And I get...

ORA-25153: Temporary Tablespace is Empty
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_METADATA", line 5088
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_METADATA", line 7589
ORA-06512: at line 1
25153. 00000 -  "Temporary Tablespace is Empty"
*Cause:    An attempt was made to use space in a temporary tablespace with
           no files.
*Action:   Add files to the tablespace using ADD TEMPFILE command.

Looks like you don't have a temporary tablespace or it is offline.

Possible the user you are using doesn't have a default temp tablepsace.

 select tablespace_name, status from dba_temp_files;

select temporary_tablespace from dba_users where username='SOME_USERNAME';

>> select tablespace_name, status from dba_temp_files;

Brings back nothing


>>select temporary_tablespace from dba_users where username='SOME_USERNAME';

I ran with my username and get the result back of "temp"


BTW - this is the crap I hate about Oracle.

Then you need to create a temp tablespace:

Why am I getting this when I just run a query to see a package contents?

My guess is dbms_metadata creates temporary objects internally.

Some objects cannot be created in a permanent tablespace.

Thx, slightwv.

I'll accept your answer, but I can't test it.  Says I have ""insufficient privileges."

Never thought this would be so hard.

You need to be SYS to create tablespaces.  If you don't have SYS access, have your DBA create it for you.

Any database created should have a TEMP tablespace.  Since yours doesn't, I would try my best to figure out why.  This can do bad things to your database...
