Store encrypted data into a varchar2 column using the DBMS_CRYPTO package. In order to store encrypted data of a RAW datatype in a VARCHAR2 column, you must convert the data using either RAWTOHEX or the UTL_ENCODE package to make it suitable for VARCHAR2 storage.
You cannot directly store the raw encrypted data into a varchar2 column type. This is documented in the PLSQL programmers guide.
