    Oracle error in upgrade express, conversion step 1003.

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: MetaLib
    • Product Version: 4

    Description:
    We're running into problems with the UE for ML 3.13 -> 4.

    In conversion step 1003 on the target machine, the “value too large” error is returned.

    It seems like the conversion code is running into problems when it is trying to insert data longer than 4000 characters into the the database field M41_DAT01.Z00.Z00_DATA (which appears to be type LONG).

    The first case of such a problem here is in document_number 2088, which has a data component 4697 characters long.
    The code fails at source/1003/implement_b.pl line 148.

    The section of the log relevant to the error follows:

    ======================================================================
    Merge the table Z00 from the MetaLib source environment to the MetaLib target environment.
    ======================================================================
    Initilizing the M41_DAT01.Z00 table

    Specifically, step 1003 has the following:

    The table M41_DAT01.Z00 was initilized

    Resolution:
    Try running conversion step 1003 with a newly compiled perl DBI/dbd-oracle.
    Be sure that this dbd-oracle was compiled against the version of oracle installed with ML4.
