Oracle Database Errors or Warnings from Error ORA-08462 to ORA-09200
ORA-08462: raw buffer contains invalid decimal data
Cause: The input raw buffer passed to a UTL_PG RAW_TO_NUMBER conversion routine contains invalid decimal data.
Action: Correct the input data.
ORA-08463: overflow converting decimal number to Oracle number
Cause: The output variable passed to a UTL_PG RAW_TO_NUMBER was not large enough to hold the Oracle number resulting from the input decimal number.
Action: Be sure that the input decimal number is valid, and besure that the output variable is large enough to hold the Oracle number value.
ORA-08464: input raw decimal data contains more than 42 digits
Cause: The input raw buffer passed to a UTL_PG RAW_TO_NUMBER conversion routine contained more than 42 digits. This exceeds the maximum size of an Oracle number.
Action: Correct the raw input buffer.
ORA-08465: input mask contains more than 32 characters
Cause: The input mask passed to UTL_PG numeric conversion routine contained more the 32 characters.
Action: Correct the mask input buffer.
ORA-08466: raw buffer length string is too short for string
Cause: The input raw buffer passed to a UTL_PG RAW_TO_NUMBER conversion routine was less than %s bytes long, but the picture mask parameter specified that %s bytes of input data were to be converted.
Action: Either the input data is incorrect, or the picture mask is incorrect. Correct the appropriate item.
ORA-08467: error converting Oracle number to string
Cause: An error occurred when converting an Oracle number to a COBOL <type> of: DISPLAY COMP-3 or character variable. The Oracle number was not in the correct format.
Action: Correct the call to the conversion routine. The input must be a valid Oracle number variable.
ORA-08468: mask option string is not supported
Cause: The mask option <clause> was passed to a UTL_PG conversion routine, but is not supported by UTL_PG. The <clause> can be: USAGE IS POINTER USAGE IS INDEX USAGE IS COMP-1 USAGE IS COMP-2 POINTER
Action: Remove the <clause> from the mask options parameter in the PL/SQL call to UTL_PG.
ORA-08469: must use the SIGN IS SEPARATE clause in mask options
Cause: A signed numeric entry with DISPLAY usage was converted using a non-defaulted character set and its PICTURE character-string contains an S. In these circumstances, a SIGN IS SEPARATE clause must be specified in the mask options.
Action: Either specify a valid SIGN IS SEPARATE clause in the mask options, use the defaulted character set, or don’t specify an S in the PICTURE character-string.
ORA-08498: Warning: picture mask ‘string’ overrides picture mask option ‘USAGE IS string’ to ‘USAGE IS DISPLAY’
Cause: Picture mask USAGE option was overridden by the picture mask.
Action: This is an informational message only. The message may be eliminated by changing the USAGE option to match the picture mask.
ORA-08499: Warning: picture mask options ‘string’ ignored by UTL_PG
Cause: Picture mask options such as OCCUR, SYNC and others are not processed by the UTL_PG numeric conversion routines.
Action: This is an informational message only. The message may be eliminated by removing the unnecessary picture mask options from the parameter list passed to the UTL_PG routine.
ORA-09200: sfccf: error creating file
Cause: Could be out of disk space
Action: See OSD error accompanying this message
