HI everyone,

I an getting the following errors when i execute my procedure.

SQL> exec PROCEDURE_NAME
BEGIN PROCEDURE_NAME; END;
*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-06502: PL/SQL: numeric or value error: character string buffer too small
ORA-06512: at "PROCEDURE_NAME ", line 164
ORA-01438: value larger than specified precision allows for this column
ORA-06512: at line 1

I am using oracle 9i and sqlplus to execute the procedure.

I even tried setting the serveroutput on and increasing the size to some 1000000. But i still get the same errors.

I dont understand what to do.

any help will be appreciated.

thanks in advance

This doesn't sound like a SERVEROUTPUT issue. You would have to post Line 164 of procedure PROCEDURE_NAME, plus what you're trying to put into it before anyone could help you.

the error message clearly says the the error is becauss of error in the procedure body and the main reason is ,it is trying to assign a lave value to a variable of smaller precision.

like assigning 'SSSSSSSSSSSSSS SSSSSSSSSSSSSSS S' to a varchar2(10) variable .

Increase the size of the variable that is trying to store the values larger thatn its size would solve your problem!!
