SQL Script Calculation View: in CE_PROJECTION use CE_CALC function to concatenate an input column and a text string


I have the following code in a SQL script calculation view:

p_r1_errors = CE_PROJECTION (:j_r1_errors,





CE_CALC ((''' is blank.'''),NVARCHAR(255)) AS "CC_ERROR_TEXT"]);

What I would like to do is to concatinate "FIELD_DESCRIPTION" and ' is blank.' and output it as the "CC_ERROR_TEXT".

"FIELD_DESCRIPTION" is currently defined as VARCHAR(255) (not NVARCHAR).

What is the correct syntax to achieve the desired result?

Thank you.

    Let the below screenshots speak how to do it.

    The expression is dynamically evaluated when we use CE_CALC, and the evaluation expression should be a string(hence inside ' ' ). All columns should be inside double quotes. + symbol is used for concatenation. Which ever column is projected using the CE_PROJECTION, only that column can be used inside CE_CALC for evaluation.
