Hi All,

I am receiving the following error while inserting records.

"Oracle Error:ORA-12899: value too large for column "MFG_ADMIN"."GAGE_RESULTS"."COMP

whereas I am checking the length of all values before inserting and am sure that none of them are larger than column lengths.

I did some research and found this error might be due to character set.

select * from nls_database_parameters where parameter like '%CHARACTERSET';

PARAMETER                      VALUE
------------------------------ 
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------
NLS_CHARACTERSET               UTF8
NLS_NCHAR_CHARACTERSET         UTF8


Please let me know how can this be related to my problem or if something else is causing this error.

Thanks,
Scott.

ORA-12899: value too large for column %s (actual: %s, maximum: %s)
 *Cause: An attempt was made to insert or update a column with a value
         which is too wide for the width of the destination column.
         The name of the column is given, along with the actual width
         of the value, and the maximum allowed width of the column.
         Note that widths are reported in characters if character length
         semantics are in effect for the column, otherwise widths are
         reported in bytes.
 *Action: Examine the SQL statement for correctness.  Check source
          and destination column data types.
          Either make the destination column wider, or use a subset
          of the source column (i.e. use substring).

Prove your claims, I tend to trust Oracle.

Michel,

I once again did the same mistake. Declared the variable as char datatype and passing it in the insert statement. The value I was passing is less than the database column length but not the array holding it.

I declared it as VARCHAR datatype and it is now working fine.

Thanks,
Soctt.
