    Iam trying to create a materielized view as
    CREATE MATERIALIZED VIEW MV_C_REPORTS AS
    SELECT * FROM C_REPORTS;

    C_REPORTS has a column with long datatype.
    Iam getting 0ra-00997 error illegal use of LONG datatype.
    any suggestions?

    Thanks

    The first thing that comes to mind is, do NOT use a LONG datatype.
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.

    What leads you to believe/conclude that you can create a materialized view on top of a deprecated LONG RAW?
