I know there has been a big debate on this BUT nothing has worked for me so far.

SQL> DESC IMS_GRNM;

Name Type
GRNNO VARCHAR2(10)
BILL VARCHAR2(7)


SQL> ALTER TABLE IMS_GRNM RENAME COLUMN BILL TO INVOICE;
ORA-14155: missing PARTITION or SUBPARTITION keyword

SQL> SELECT TABLE_NAME, PARTITION_NAME FROM USER_TAB_PARTITIONS WHERE TABLE_NAME='IMS_GRNM';

TABLE_NAME PARTITION_NAME
----------- ---------------



SQL> SHO PARAMETER COMPATIBLE

NAME TYPE VALUE
---------- ------ -----
compatible string 9.0.0

Can somebody please tell me in simple words how to get rid of it.

I am not aware of any debate. You just need to use the correct syntax and it works:
orclz>
orclz> desc dept;
 Name                                                        Null?    Type
 ----------------------------------------------------------- -------- ----------------------------------------
 DEPTNO                                                      NOT NULL NUMBER(2)
 DNAME                                                                VARCHAR2(14)
 LOC                                                                  VARCHAR2(13)

orclz> alter table dept rename column loc to location;

Table altered.

orclz> desc dept;
 Name                                                        Null?    Type
 ----------------------------------------------------------- -------- ----------------------------------------
 DEPTNO                                                      NOT NULL NUMBER(2)
 DNAME                                                                VARCHAR2(14)
 LOCATION                                                             VARCHAR2(13)

orclz>

That is exactly the same syntax I'm using

ALTER TABLE IMS_GRNM RENAME COLUMN BILL TO INVOICE;
orclz> alter table dept rename column loc to location;

Well, perhaps it doesn't work in your release. It is a bit old.

I believe the problem is that RENAME COLUMN was not available in Oracle 9. I think it was introduced in 10.

Is this the only solution to move onto 10g at least from 9i?

You could add a column with the new name, copy everything into it, and drop the old column.

In older versions, as a workaround, you can add the new column, update the new column with the data from the old column, then drop the old column, as shown below.

SCOTT@orcl_12.1.0.2.0> CREATE TABLE ims_grnm
  2    (grnno  VARCHAR2(10),
  3  	bill   VARCHAR2(7))

Table created.

SCOTT@orcl_12.1.0.2.0> DESC ims_grnm

 ----------------------------------------- -------- ----------------------------
 GRNNO                                              VARCHAR2(10)
 BILL                                               VARCHAR2(7)

SCOTT@orcl_12.1.0.2.0> INSERT INTO ims_grnm (grnno, bill) VALUES ('grnno1', 'bill1')

That would be the last option I guess. Thanks Mate.

I'd think you'd want to move to a version that is supported . . . or at least was supported at some time in this millenium.

If you are still running 9i you are either running without support, or you are paying through the nose for it. Is the rest of your technology stack (hardware, OS, etc) equally old and outdated?

Worse, he is running the worst version Oracle has ever released.

Column renaming was introduced in 9.2.
