  2. Run batches stkxpld, prepost and stkupd.
  3. Choose an item with standard unit of measure = 'M'.
  4. For this item in table STAKE_SKU_LOC make sure the below data exists:
    a.  For warehouse=905000: STAKE_SKU_LOC.snapshot_on_hand_qty = 52,142,856 and snapshot_in_transit_qty = 1500
    b.  For other 34 virtual warehouses STAKE_SKU_LOC.snapshot_on_hand_qty = 17,142,856 (equal for each)
  5. Load file for 905 warehouse with inventory result. In file quantity of this item = 70
  6. Run batch stkupld. Batch fails with error "ORA-06502: PL/SQL: numeric or value error: character string buffer too small" for some items with standard unit of measure in KG or M.
