If you are currently using a release of Oracle Clinical earlier than Release 4.6.6, you must first upgrade Oracle Database, the Oracle Clinical database server and Oracle Clinical databases to Release 4.6.6.
Upgrade to Release 4.6.2 if you are using a release prior to 4.6.2.
Upgrade to Release 4.6.6 after upgrading to 4.6.2, or if you are using a release higher than 4.6.2 and lower than 4.6.6.
