It sounds like the setting has not been set to allow you to execute a direct database query.
You can do this by logging into the Presentation services as the Administrator user. Clicking on the Settings tab and then selecting the Administration option. On the Oracle BI Presentation Services Administration window select the Manage Privileges option. This brings up the Privileges Administration window, scroll down to the Answers section (listed on the left) and check the Execute Direct Database Requests privilege setting this is defaulted to let no one execute Direct SQL request. Reset the privileges such that the group that the user trying to execute the direct database request belongs to is set to be able to execute the direct database requests. This should alleviate the error that you are getting.
I hope that this helps.
That worked, thanks!
