Oracle field length error after Oracle patch update


Dear All,

We have an ABAP program wherein we are inserting records in an external (non-SAP) Oracle DB

by means of native SQL. On 22/08/2010, we had updated an Oracle patch in the production server.

After the patch was updated, the program has started throwing error:

An SQL error has occurred: ORA-12899: value too

large for column


438, maximum: 350)#ORA-06512: at line 1

The message text variable has only 219 characters. After some observations, i found that all the data is

converted into exactly double the length after this oracle patch update.

Please help.
