The character string buffer is too small on line 45.

Unfortunately you haven't included the line numbers.

Read and follow OraFAQ Forum Guide, especially "How to format your post?" section.
Make sure that lines of code do not exceed 80 characters when you format. Use the "Preview Message" button.
Always post your Oracle version (4 decimals).

Which one is line 45?
I think " character string buffer too small" is self-explained, you try to put something somewhere where there is not space enough.

Regards
Michel
