Hi Experts,

We have an urgent one here:

Using Delphi 7 with Direct Oracle Access 4.0.7.1, we are trying to insert an XML string into an Oracle 10g XMLTYPE data field and it is returning the errors:
"ORA-21500 Internal Error" and then it gives "OCI-21500 Internal Error".

Your immediate help would be very much appreciated.

Cheers,
Alex

well no experience using this via doa,

but i usual do prestore the xml-doc into a clob-field,
there is included a after insert-trigger on the table,
which does then a validation of the doc against a schema
and transfers it, if valid, into the xmltype-field,
otherwise a invalid-flag will be set on the table

of course this is only a workaround in your case

We have found that Oracle's XMLTYPE field (10g) does not permit ascii chars 17 through 22 so these have to be removed from the XML before trying an insert into the field. Thanks for your time.
