Dears,
I´m having this problem, if some one can help me.

I´m trying to do a loader from Mysql to Oracle, in mysql I have one table with more than 100.000 rows and when I do the loader 9 rows show the error “Field in data file exceeds maximum length”. The field in MySQL is “description varchar(600)” in oracle is “description varchar2(600)” and in the archive of loader is “description char(600).

I did a query to be sure that is not only 9 filds that use the all 600 position of the field, the result was more than 100, so, I can eliminate this situation.

Some body had this problem before are have a guess to resolve?

Thanks a lot,
Marcelo

I don't know but if you use phpMyAdmin I think you can see it.
I may be at table level in MySQL.

So you have (almost) the same character set in both databases and the same field length definition, I wonder how you can get a maximum length exceeded error.
Post one of the rows in error using code tags and 80 characters per line.

Regards
Michel

Post the data.
Read OraFAQ Forum Guide, "How to format your post?" section.
Make sure that lines of code do not exceed 80 characters.
Use the "Preview Message" button to verify.
