Hi all,

Am getting the following error while impoting an external table through Oracle Warehouse Builder 10.2:-

SQL Exception
SQL Exception
Repository Error:SQL Exception..
Class Name: CacheMediator.
Method Name: getDDEntryFromDB.
Repository Error Message: ORA-22835: Buffer too small for CLOB to CHAR or BLOB to RAW conversion (actual: 4660, maximum: 4000)
--Complete error log attached.--

I have created the External table through SQL Plus. Its a fixed length format table with record delimited by newline.
The length of one record is 522 bytes. All datatypes used in External table defination are CHAR.

Help required..

Thanks in advance..

I'm sorry, I wouldn't know why OWB returned an error.

As a workaround, why wouldn't you load data using SQL*Plus (and external tables feature), or a simple SQL*Loader session?

The requirement is such that we need to use only OWB.
I tried to reduce the number of columns in this external table and it worked fine. I think there is some problem with the total length of the source text file. The source file is of 522 bytes length. And number of columns are 95.
