I have a problem loading xml data into the CLOB when it's done in Oracle Form
I'm reading XML file as a ASCII data and trying to concatinated  into the CLOB variable for inserting into the Oracle table.

v_clob          clob;
v_file           varchar2(200);
v_file_row    varchar2(32000);
in_file          Text_IO.File_Type;
end_of_file   boolean := FALSE;

and read .xml file

in_file := Text_IO.Fopen(v_file,'r');
WHILE NOT end_of_file
      v_clob := v_clob||v_file_row;   <--- compile error wrong number of types of arguments in call to '||'
insert into xml_table (doc_clob) values (v_lob);

If I declare
v_clob          long;

it work fine, but raises error if lenght exceeds 32K.

Can Anyone provide an example for solving this issue?
