Begin

In general it should work (if the data types of the record variables match the parameter data types of the procedure, both are unknown to us.)

Get rid of the

exception
when others then raise;


though, it just hides the real error and does nothing to handle it.

Sir,Thanks for your reply

But I got the same error when I tried removing when others exception.

Also the data types are same .

when I pass values manually returned from the cursor the
procedure sp_ins_emp_hist is successfully executed.

But when i ran as a batch, its giving error.

Post the code of sp_ins_emp_hist procedure.

Then the data types are not the same, or you run into an error inside the procedure.

Post the actual SQLPlus session where you execute the code, including all error messages.

And post the result of:

desc sp_ins_emp_hist


and

desc employees

Well you're overlooking something, but since you've given use nothing to work with we can't tell you what it is.
Post:
1) A desc of the employees table.
2) Specification of sp_ins_emp_hist procedure.

Did the line number in the error message change after you removed the exception handler?

That's because the WHEN OTHERS had nothing to do with the error. Thomas was just telling you that in addition to your error, that is just plain bad code.

passing values from a cursor as you are doing is fine.

plsql numeric or value error means:

1) you are putting non-numbers into a number variable
OR
2) you are putting 10 bytes into a 5 bytes variable.

SQL> declare
  2     anumber_v number;
  3  begin
  4     anumber_v := 'a';
  5  end;
  6  /
declare
*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-06502: PL/SQL: numeric or value error: character to number conversion error
ORA-06512: at line 4

SQL> declare
  2     astring_v varchar2(1);
  3  begin
  4     astring_v := '12';
  5  end;
  6  /
declare
*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-06502: PL/SQL: numeric or value error: character string buffer too small
ORA-06512: at line 4

Figure out which one you are doing and fix it.

Good luck, Kevin

The plsql numeric or value error can also be caused by associative array / plsql table, if it is empty.

XE@SQL>  declare
  2   type p_Table is table of number index by pls_integer;
  3   l_Table p_table;
  4   begin
  5   for i in l_table.first..l_table.last
  6   loop
  7      null;
  8   end loop;
  9   end;
 10  /
 declare
*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-06502: PL/SQL: numeric or value error
ORA-06512: at line 5

Yes, forgot about that one. It is obscure.

But the actual problem is not that the array is empty, but rather that one of your loop indexes is null

SQL> begin
  2     for i in 1..null loop
  3        null;
  4     end loop;
  5  end;
  6  /
begin
*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-06502: PL/SQL: numeric or value error
ORA-06512: at line 2

SQL> begin
  2     for i in null..1 loop
  3        null;
  4     end loop;
  5  end;
  6  /
begin
*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-06502: PL/SQL: numeric or value error
ORA-06512: at line 2
