SQL Error: ORA-38818: illegal reference to editioned object

SQL Error: ORA-38818: illegal reference to editioned object APPS.QP_LIST_HEADERS_ALL
38818. 00000 -  "illegal reference to editioned object %s.%s"
*Cause:    An attempt was made to violate the rule "A noneditioned object
           may not depend on an editioned object."
*Action:   Either make this object editioned; or do not make the illegal

A common reason for this error is missing ENABLE EDITIONS privilege to the user who was trying to run the SELECT statement . I granted the required privilege  by executing below command
alter user <USER/SCHEMA_NAME> enable editions , and issue is resolved.

  2. Great! Thank you very much for sharing! Very helpful!

  3. I think there is a need to provide some more information about SQL and stored procedures. These are actually very important tools to look for.
