Good morning, I am trying to replicate the northwind sample database in oracle 11.1.0.7.
The employees table is set up with 2 blob fields, one of which (NOTES)should contain a text string.
The inserts fail on this column with the error: " ORA-01465 Invalid hex number"

This is one of the insert statements:
INSERT INTO Employees(EmployeeID, LastName, FirstName, Title, TitleOfCourtesy, BirthDate, HireDate, Address, City, Region, PostalCode, Country, HomePhone, Extension, Photo, Notes, ReportsTo, PhotoPath) VALUES (2, 'Fuller', 'Andrew', 'Vice President, Sales', 'Dr.', TO_DATE('1952-02-19 00:00:00','yyyy-mm-dd hh24:mi:ss'), TO_DATE('1992-08-14 00:00:00','yyyy-mm-dd hh24:mi:ss'), '908 W. Capital Way', 'Tacoma', 'WA', '98401', 'USA', '(206) 555-9482', '3457', null, 'Andrew received his BTS commercial in 1974 and a Ph.D. in international marketing from the University of Dallas in 1981.  He is fluent in French and Italian and reads German.  He joined the company as a sales representative, was promoted to sales manager in January 1992 and to vice president of sales in March 1993.  Andrew is a member of the Sales Management Roundtable, the Seattle Chamber of Commerce, and the Pacific Rim Importers Association.', null, 'http://accweb/emmployees/fuller.bmp');
Here is the DDL of the table:
CREATE TABLE "NORTHWIND"."EMPLOYEES" 
   (	"EMPLOYEEID" NUMBER(10,1) NOT NULL ENABLE, 
	"LASTNAME" VARCHAR2(20) NOT NULL ENABLE,
