Hi,

Can anybody tell me how to insert character value into number field?

As I have one procedure whose input is Varray as character datatype.
Now i want to insert this Varray value which is comma seperated into table whose field is number.

This is not possible to change table number datatype into varchar2 as its master table and its a primary key field with lots of indexes on it.

It is not possible, numbers are not string, numbers don't contain character.

Your requirement are not clear, post an example.

Hi Michel,

I enclosed script with mail .

I want to insert into table without "Execute immediate" as per my requirement.

I think where clause of select query is giving me problem....


" WHERE pmt.payment_id IN ('||V_PAYMENT_ID||')".


As pmt.payment_id is number field and V_PAYMENT_ID is varchar2.



Thanks in advance.

Search for "varying in list" or the like.

Can you please tell in brief as I am not getting you.

I'm not asking anything but you to search for the string I posted.
Note: there a "Search" command in menu bar.

You can also search on AskTom for the same.

Michel
