This was happening due to dependency on other procs in Oracle which happened to be invalid.
Fixed by new cliean install of datamodel of oacs.

Janus, if your problem was indeed due simply to invalid Oracle pl/sql procedures, then reinstalled the OpenACS data model from scratch was overkill. Instead, you probably could have just recompiled all the invalid procedures using Trezzo's recompile_all_objects pl/sql procedure.

Andrew, Thanks for the tip, I will defenetly need this proc in the future.<br>
I had other problems with my first install due to java on RedHat 7.3 issue and no data, so I did not mind to reinstall. And besides Im so new to it that the more on hands experience the better (I hope:).
