It's CLOB.

What does "not working" mean?

Can you imagine, that no one here can know what you're doing, when you don't tell us anything about your context??

What do you do? Where are you doing this? How are you doing this? What is the complete and exact error message?

Within the context of pl/sql  you can declare varchar2 variables up to 32767 characters.

If you are using 12c your DBA can enable extended varchar2 types and then you can have SQL varchar2 values of 32K including table columns.

If you need more than that, then you should use CLOB.  As mentioned above by others, you'll need to provide some more context for us to help more as to exactly what is going wrong with your code.

Do note, the 12c extended varchar2 values are internally managed as small CLOB values
