Hi,

I am trying to insert a record into a table called 'A' then i am getting the above error ORA-24334 - no descriptor for this position.

Note the table 'A' has a LONG column 'descript'.

But the same query works fine with another table with same as table A with only one exception as 'descript' column is CLOB.

Kindly help me in this.

Thanks in advance.

So use CLOB.
What do you expect us to tell more with what you posted?

Hi Michel,

I need to give a common insert query to support both.

The same should work with table 'A' with LONG column in lower version of ORACLE i.e less than ORACLE 8.

Similary the table 'A' with CLOB column in higher versions of ORACLE. i.e ORACLE 8 or above.


Please clarify if i change a LONG column to CLOB then whether data will loss or not.


Thank you.

Changing the datatype from LONG to CLOB leads to no data loss.
