ORA-14134: indexes cannot use both DESC and REVERSE

Cause : An attempt was made to make a reverse index with some index columns marked DESC.

Action - How to fix it : DBA Scripts :: www.high-oracle.com/scripts

Do not use DESC in reverse indexes. The rule-based optimizer can scan indexes backwards, which allows a normal reverse index to simulate a reverse index with columns marked DESC.
