Hi Team,

Below is the code, I have written to store the column values into a collection using a select statement. I am getting the below error, kindly help me in this regard. Any help is really appreciated.

CREATE TYPE enames_var IS VARRAY(200) OF VARCHAR2(30);

l_empdata enames_var;
select first_name into l_empdata
from employees;

ORA-06550: line 4, column 8:
PL/SQL: ORA-00932: inconsistent datatypes: expected UDT got CHAR
ORA-06550: line 4, column 1:
PL/SQL: SQL Statement ignored
06550. 00000 -  "line %s, column %s:\n%s"
*Cause:    Usually a PL/SQL compilation error.
