    Question

    When I use a function in a view it results in a varchar2(4000)
    type. I would like to type cast it to varchar2(10)

    create or replace view aview as
    select afunction(tab.number) T_Type,tab.*
    from atable tab;

    How can do that?

    Why not use SUBSTR?

    select SUBSTR(afunction(tab.number),1,10) T_Type,tab.* from atable tab;
