VARCHAR2 Parameter Question

Does a VARCHAR2 input parameter to a stored procedure have a max length? I pass a 465 byte string to a procedure receiving it as a varchar2 and it gives some error of the string byte too small or something.

I cut it down to 195 and it works fine. I bring it up in TOAD to debug it and the parameter shows a value of 200.

Why is that? I thought the max value was 4000. Received on Fri Sep 26 2008 - 12:19:15 CDT
