What you need to do is increase the default INIT and NEXT in the TEMP


When you do a SORT, ORDER BY, GROUP BY, MAX, MIN, and other functions,
Oracle uses memory (sort_area_size) to do the calculation. When the memory
is used up, Oracle creates temporary segments in the TEMPORARY TABLESPACE
default for the user running the operation. In your case it is TEMP.

These temporary segments use the default storage clauses for TEMP and in
your case it is too small, resulting in 121 extents. This is the default
limit for your database, based on the database block size.

Change the default storage for TEMP with the above syntax (or different
INIT/NEXT numbers) and you will be set.
