    Question

    Hello,

    I have sql file with many inserts in it for different tables.

    When I run this script using TOAD ( a tool for Oracle application Developers from Quest s/w) it works fine without a single error.

    But when I run this file in a SQL*Plus, I get error
    ***** SP2-0027: Input is too long (> 2499 characters) - line ignored *****

    and because of this many other insert statements fail giving FK error.

    How do I overcome this "SP2-0027"

    Thanks

    Sameer

    It´s a limit in SQL*PLUS, from the manuals :

    "ORA-01704 string literal too long

    Cause: A quoted string specified as a constant was too long.

    Action: Quoted strings may not contain more than 2000
    characters."

    You must to break the string, something like :

    insert xxx values ('string < 2000 chars' || 'another piece of the string ' || 'another' ......


    Regards,

    Chiappa
