Dear Experts,

Could you confirm whether below SQL is valid or not, or could you please offer me an alternative?

Table TA (x number, y number, z clob)
Table TB (a number, b number, c varchar, d varchar, e varchar)

insert into TA (x,y,z,) select a, b, to_clob(concat(concat(c,d),e)) from TB;

No need for to_clob:

insert into TA (x,y,z,) select a, b, concat(concat(c,d),e)  from TB;;

Since you keep asking "SQL is valid or not", again, set up a simple test and try it.

What happens if I put to_clob? Table TB has no CLOB fields.

I think you mean implicit conversion.

Nothing.

>>Table TB has no CLOB fields.

So?  You are inserting varchar2 objects into a CLOB field.  That is just fine.
