I am  constantly  getting the following while executing a stored proc which is called from within another stored proc .Server  is  ORA10g.

ORA-06502: PL/SQL: numeric or value error

I have checked all possbile causes for this error ... .and it not the common casuses .. ..like field lengths , data type mismatch source and destination tables   etc . . . .

To track the error i have inserted values in to a temporary table for each statement that is execurted in the procedure.

The statment executions stop at  :


Is there anything wrong with using execute immediate statements in a procs .....

Or any specific rules that apply to usage of this statement?

I do not know how to correlate a truncate statement with a numeric value error .

Experts please help.
