    Exclamation Unanswered: character string buffer too small

    I’m running into a problem when I try to convert some of our clob fields to character strings to display on a Powebuilder report. I’m using the function dbms_lob to convert, as in:

    Select dbms_lob.substr(d.notes,32767,1) from myreport d

    32,767 is the maximum string size this function can handle, and the sql statement is crashing with a “character string buffer too small” error when it retrieves a really big report from my Oracle database.
    Is there a way to display my data from Oracle clob column which I converted to string in my stored procedure so it can display on my PB report without crashing my system?

    How can I get around this?

    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.
    Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.
