update long column [message #35694] Sat, 06 October 2001 00:36 Go to next message

Oracle 7.3.4, PL/SQL
I want to update a LONG column on a table ( 2 G )
I cannot find a PL/SQL type capable of storing the LONG information I want to write, the "long" PL/SQL type being limited to 32K
I cannot either write progressively by concatenation in the LONG columns (e.g. this does not work update
set LONG_COLUMN = LONG_COLUMN || var_plsql_long where ... - in a loop)

What Can I do ?
is there a way to append information to a LONG ?
or ... ?
