Hi mohitqyl,

You want to declare an exception handler to deal with the error, or each type of error.

If you'll post you procedure I'll be glad to show you what to plug in.

Actually, that error is a programming error.  The procedure is calling SUBSTR with an illegal argument.

Trapping the error and handling it is more work than correcting the SUBSTR function call.

I appreciate for your idea. I will surely do that but Can you just show some statement to handle this error.

The IBM documentation is here:

You should also read:

You'll need a handler in your procedure that looks like this:

  DECLARE CONTINUE WHEN {condition};


But I STRONGLY urge you to not use this.  If you have a coding error in your procedure (and the error that you're getting indicates that one exists) all you're doing is masking the error.  Subsequent steps in the procedure could be meaningless, or worse, hazardous to your data.
