May be this.....

ORA-01000: maximum open cursors exceeded 
Cause: A host language program attempted to open too many cursors.
The initialization parameter OPEN_CURSORS determines the maximum number of cursors per user. 
Action: Modify the program to use fewer cursors.
 If this error occurs often, shut down Oracle, increase the value of OPEN_CURSORS, and then restart Oracle.  

while compiling any complex problem.


More importantly did you restart the DB ?(bounce the database) after changing this parameter (open_cursors )
