Last updated on JANUARY 03, 2018
Applies to:Oracle Purchasing - Version 12.0 to 12.1.3 [Release 12 to 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
When customer populates PO_REQUISITIONS_INTERFACE_ALL.NOTE_TO_APPROVER field with more than 480 characters, they get the below error on import:
SQL Error: ORA-12899: value too large for column
"PO"."PO_REQUISITIONS_INTERFACE_ALL"."NOTE_TO_APPROVER" (actual: 509,
12899. 00000 - "value too large for column %s (actual: %s, maximum: %s)"
*Cause: An attempt was made to insert or update a column with a value
which is too wide for the width of the destination column.
The name of the column is given, along with the actual width
of the value, and the maximum allowed width of the column.
Note that widths are reported in characters if character length
semantics are in effect for the column, otherwise widths are
reported in bytes.
*Action: Examine the SQL statement for correctness. Check source
and destination column data types.
Either make the destination column wider, or use a subset
of the source column (i.e. use substring).
Steps to reproduce:
1. Insert data whose length is more than 480 characters in to note_to_approver field of po_requisitions_interface_all table.
