    Import Error

    All,
    I run an import and get

    IMP-00058: ORACLE error 1461 encountered
    ORA-01461: can bind a LONG value only for insert into a LONG column
    IMP-00028: partial import of previous table rolled back: 40443 rows rolled back

    The export client is oracle 8i and import client is 11g.
    I know I could set NLS_LANG but I tried and it doesn't work yet.
    ===the 8i exporting database--
    SQL> select * from nls_database_parameters where parameter = 'NLS_CHARACTERSET';

    PARAMETER VALUE
    ---------------------- -------- ----------------------------NLS_CHARACTERSET US7ASCII

    ========the 11g importing database===

    PARAMETER VALUE

    --------------------- ---------------------
    NLS_CHARACTERSET AL32UTF8

    here is my NLS_LANG setting before running the import which failed..
    set NLS_LANG=AMERICAN_AMERICA.US7ASCII
    export NLS_LANG

    thanks...

    How did you make the connection between that error result (inserting a LONG into a column that doesn't support LONG) and the character sets?

    because there is no LONG field on the table, the table is exported and imported as is...and some googling suggests is a client character set issue.
