Hi All,

I am a newbie to the PL/SQL area. I am trying to generate the XML for a record to insert the data into an audit trail for the table. To do so, I declared a string for VARCHAR2(4000) and it was working fine until the data increased the limit due to a field comments (which itself is VARCHAR2(4000)).

To increase the limit, I changed the type to CLOB and ever since my code has stopped working,

The following is a section of the code that I am using to get the data:

GET_CHANGE_LOG_USERS :=  '<Transaction type="insert">'  || CHR(10) ||
                                                  '<Field value="LOGON_ID">'  || CHR(10) ||
                                                  '<OldValue/>'  || CHR(10) ||
                                                  '<NewValue>'  ||
                                             GET_Record.LOGONID ||
                                                  '</NewValue>'  || CHR(10) ||
                                                  '</Field>'  || CHR(10) ||
                                                  '<Field value="ROLE">'  || CHR(10) ||
                                                  '<OldValue/>'  || CHR(10) ||
                                                  '<NewValue>' ||   GET_ROLE_CD  ||
                                                  '</NewValue>'  || CHR(10) ||
                                                  '</Field>'  || CHR(10) ||

There are a copule of more fields..
         '<Field value="COMMENTS">'  || CHR(10) ||
                                                  '<OldValue/>'  || CHR(10) ||
                                                  '<NewValue>'  ||
                                                  '</NewValue>'  || CHR(10) ||


I have been bugging my head around for last 4 days trying to get a solution to this by myself and copule of other collegues of mine, but no success........

Your help will be very much appricaited...

Cause: There are several causes:

The LOB locator was never initialized

The locator is for a BFILE and the routine expects a BLOB/CLOB/NCLOB locator

The locator is for a BLOB/CLOB/NCLOB and the routine expects a BFILE locator

Trying to update the LOB in a trigger body -- LOBs in trigger bodies are read-only

The locator is for a BFILE/BLOB and the routine expects a CLOB/NCLOB locator

The locator is for a CLOB/NCLOB and the routine expects a BFILE/BLOB locator

  Action: For (1), initialize the LOB locator by selecting into the locator variable or by setting the LOB locator to empty. For (2),(3), (5), and (6),pass the correct type of locator into the routine. For (4), remove the trigger body code that updates the LOB value.
