    Are you sure you don't want to convert it to a clob or at least a varchar2? If you had access to Powerbuilder you could do the conversion with that. Just add a new column to the table and iterate though the table moving the data one row at a time.

    You might also be able to use pl/sql. But that would involve some research.
