    ORA-01840: input value not long enough for date format

    Hi,

    i make a SELECT query and i have a error message:
    ORA-01840: input value not long enough for date format.
    My select query is:
    Select to_date(datliv,'yyyymmdd') from table@ggos;

    I have the same message error when i make this in pl/sql Procedure.


    Please help.

    What is the datatype of the column DATLIV?

    If it's CHAR or VARCHAR2, the values returned by the following select are the troublemakers:

    SELECT datliv FROM table@ggos
    WHERE LENGTH(datliv) < 8;

    However I have the strange feeling that the datatype of DATLIV is DATE. If this is tru then use TO_CHAR, not TO_DATE:

    Select TO_CHAR(datliv,'yyyymmdd') from table@ggos;
