how to update a long data type
Date: Thu, 3 Jun 2010 10:36:09 -0400
I am not allowed to change some long data types to clobs. I asked and was told no. This is pretty old, so when I google it I don't see much.
I have a table with a long and I need to update that field (I also tried inserting the record into a test table). It appears that the data I have to update or insert is over 4k and when I do it I get:
ora-00972 identifier too long.
When I google that error, it is normally if your column name is too long. How did people put large amounts of data into longs? I have not used them in years.
I made a test table and tried to insert it and got the same error.
