The values of the COMPILE_STATUS column in DBA_MVIEWS are as follows:
The first two are normal behavior. The compile_status will be 'VALID' right after a refresh but before there is DML on the primary table; it will be 'NEEDS_COMPILE' after there has been DML on the primary table.
The status of 'COMPILATION_ERROR', however, is not expected. This note is intended for a general audience, as an initial starting point for beginning diagnosis of the 'COMPILATION_ERROR' status.
A materialized view (mview) refresh has occurred, and the COMPILE_STATUS in DBA_MVIEWS now shows as 'COMPILATION_ERROR'.
