    Hi

    I am running Oracle 8.0.6 EE. I have a table with a long raw column. I have created a new table replacing the longraw column with a blob column. I would like to migrate my data into the new table. I have tried insert into new_table select ..,to_lob(longrawcolumn) from old_table. This command fails with an error. Any ideas how I can succesfully go round this problem.
