ORA-06512 : at line
ORA 06512 or ORA 6512 is a common error faced by oracle users and administrators alike during the operations of an oracle database. The ORA-06512 error in itself does not indicate the actual issue or an exception code. ORA-06512 normally indicates the line number at which the oracle PL/SQL code has caused an error or exception condition. The rest of the article provides steps to analyze this error along with further references that can be leveraged for solving an error ORA-06512.
[Oracle][ODBC][Ora]ORA-01013: user requested cancel of
ORA-06512: at "MMS_TEST.YPPAMERGE", line 93
ORA-06512: at line 1
In the above example, ORA 6512 message generated by the oracle database server indicates that the error 1013 was caused by the user cancelling the current operation while the ORA 06512 error indicates the line number at which the code execution was cancelled.
You should try to focus on the ORA-01013 oracle error in this case and use the ORA 6512 to identify the line number or code which has caused an exception and fix the exception or add an additional exception handler based on the type of error.
ORA-06512 at string line string
Cause: Backtrace message as the stack is unwound by unhandled exceptions.

ORA-31626: job does not exist
ORA-31633: unable to create master table "DB12.SYS_EXPORT_SCHEMA_08"
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_SYS_ERROR", line 95
ORA-06512: at "SYS.KUPV$FT", line 863
ORA-01031: insufficient privileges
You can notice that ORA-06512 shows the line number at which the error occurred. In this particular case, the focus error is really ORA-31626 which tells us that the job doesnt exist and the real reason for the same is the ORA-01031 which clearly tells us that the privileges for the job are missing.
So we resolved this error by granting create table privileges to the user who is trying to perfom the dp export.
