Ahh, so it's not a 'specific' page, it's a 'particular' page.

Well, then, it is rather particular, isn't it?

Umm, you did say it was 'particular'.

Well, gee, that makes the error number between 20000 and 20999. Any clue which number that might be? And any idea what code is causing this error? Any inkling at all?

What, no error text? No line numbers? No utterly useful output to assist in this wild goose chase you've presented?

Again, you stated at the beginning this page was 'particular'.

Be my guest. However you haven't told anyone here where they could go to start figuring anything.

If you can't post specifics (Oracle version to four numbers, code producing the error, the ERROR TEXT and what, exactly, you were doing when this grievous error occured) you can't expect any assistance other than what you've just received. When WE have more information YOU can get information and help. It's truly that simple.
