Oracle Clinical - Version 4.6.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Given a DCM with at least one repeating question group having at least one question with a default repeating value defined.

Creating 99 subsets of this base DCM doesn't raise any errors.

When attempting to create the 100th subset for this DCM ( Maintain Study DCMs ,column Subset # = 100 ), the following error is displayed:

123400: CreateDCMQuesGrpfromDCMQG Failed -> ORA-01438: value larger than specified precision allowed for this column

Removing the Repeating Defaults will allow the user, as expected, to create the 100th subset. However, when attempting to redefine the default repeats the following error occurs:

FRM-40508 - ORACLE error: unable to INSERT record.
