    literal does not match format string

    Dear All,

    I executed the package body (for which I have given the coding below) in the following way :

    exec Appts_Dss_Delta.appt_load

    and Oracle says :

    SQL> exec Appts_Dss_Delta.appt_load
    appts_dss_agents,agents_load 17-SEP-03 -1861 ORA-01861: literal does not match format string Oracle
    BEGIN Appts_Dss_Delta.appt_load; END;

    *
    ERROR at line 1:
    ORA-01861: literal does not match format string
    ORA-06512: at "DSS.APPTS_DSS_DELTA", line 204
    ORA-06512: at line 1


    Can anyone clarify where Iam wrong?? Just glance thru and give me a hint...


    Regards,

    K.Diwakar

    My guess is you have an explict format string (like a to_date or to_char) somewhere that you are passing garbage to.

    Dear Marist,

    Could it be this way that the procedure is trying to insert values into the table whose columns are defined as date but the values are not actually in the DATE format?
