    Of course you cannot do that because the value test1 is not a number. String literals are OK for inserting into a clob.

    In regards to your CLOB column question...

    1- You cannot directly insert a string larger than 4000 bytes in your CLOB column
    2- For a string larger than 4000 you have to call a procedure, check dbms_lob.write
    3- For a string larger than 32000 bytes you would have to loop to append data in 32K chunks, check dbms_lob.writeappend

    But you can use dbms_lob to read a flat file and load that with dbms_lob.
