you have a comma then "with order by"

what is "WITH" supposed to be?  and where is your order by clause?

I don't know what your ordering criteria is supposed to be, but as an example of what you might need...


SELECT *
  FROM (SELECT /*+ FIRST_ROWS(n) */
              a.*, ROWNUM rnum
          FROM (  SELECT p.fldstring folder_level_1,
                         p2.fldstring folder_level_2,
                         p3.fldstring folder_level3,
                         d.doc_name
                    FROM document d
                         INNER JOIN folder f ON d.id = f.lid
                         LEFT JOIN PATH p ON f.foldid = p.fldtype || '-' || p.fldkey
                         LEFT JOIN PATH p2 ON p2.fldkey = p.fldkey2
                         LEFT JOIN PATH p3 ON p3.fldkey = p2.fldkey2
                ORDER BY folder_level_1,
                         folder_level_2,
                         folder_level3,
                         d.doc_name) a
         WHERE ROWNUM <= :max_row_to_fetch)
 WHERE rnum >= :min_row_to_fetch;


note I removed the extraneous comma and the word "with"  and then specified the columns to order by
