Shipment Stop Count Incorrect or "ORA-01438: value larger than specified precision allowed for this column" Generated When Entering a Shipment Event with the SHIPMENT EVENT TRACKER Agent Enabled (Doc ID 1541646.1)

Last updated on MAY 06, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Transportation Management - Version 6.2.8 to 6.2.8 [Release 6.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When entering a shipment event for a shipment and the SHIPMENT EVENT TRACKER agent is enabled the NUM_STOPS field on the SHIPMENT table is being updated with an incorrect value. The value is equal to the number of ship units on the shipment multiplied by the number of stops. In cases where the number of ship units and stops the following exception would be generated instead of corrupting the value in the NUM_STOPS field.

java.sql.SQLDataException: ORA-01438: value larger than specified precision allowed for this column
