Error in cast a variable

these are few lines from my long STORED PROCEDURE actually i am new to oracle 11g please
v_s nvarchar2(10);
p_RN nvarchar2(10);
v_s := v_s || cast(p_RN as nvarchar2(10)); - ERROR IS COMING IN THIS LINE
ORA-06550: line 5, column 39:
PLS-00103: Encountered the symbol "(" when expecting one of the following:
06550. 00000 - "line %s, column %s:\n%s"
*Cause:    Usually a PL/SQL compilation error.
please somebody help me

Just a little explanation about the error message.
ORA-06550: line 5, column 39:
PLS-00103: Encountered the symbol "(" when expecting one of the following:
Line 5 column 39 is the starting parenthesis of the "(10)". For using cast you can't add a lenght to the datatype.
If you change that, then you get a different error message:
v_s nvarchar2(10);
p_RN varchar2(10);
  v_s := v_s || cast(p_RN as nvarchar2); -- ERROR IS COMING IN THIS LINE
Fehler beim Start in Zeile 13 in Befehl:

p_RN varchar2(10);
  v_s := v_s || cast(p_RN as nvarchar2); -- ERROR IS COMING IN THIS LINE
ORA-06550: line 5, column 22:
PLS-00382: expression is of wrong type
ORA-06550: line 5, column 3:
PL/SQL: Statement ignored
06550. 00000 -  "line %s, column %s:\n%s"
*Cause:    Usually a PL/SQL compilation error.
*Action:ORA-06550: line 5, column 22:
PLS-00382: expression is of wrong type
This shows that you can't convert/cast a nvarchzar type into another nvarchar type.
It would work if you cast a number into a varchar2 type for example
v_s nvarchar2(10);
p_RN number(10);
  v_s := v_s || cast(p_RN as nvarchar2); -- ERROR IS COMING IN THIS LINE

  • Error message into a Variable.

    Dear users,
    I have a rather usual (unusual from the weekend beers for me though!!) query which I can't figure out a proper way to implement.
    My requirement is like this:
    I have a message class in which I want to define a text 'Employee number & not found'.
    I want to use this in the program, but not to raise this error. Instead, I want to move this error message with the Employee number into a Character(200) variable.
    So instead of using MESSAGE e0xx(messageclass) USING employee number, I would like to move the error text into a variable which looks like:
    lv_text = e0xx(messageclass) USING '1234'   which stores the text 'Employee number 1234 not found' in lv_text.
    How would I acheive it??
    Thanks, V!

    Try tis way
    message e999(00) with i_emp-empno into lv_text.
    press f1 in message will provide you more details

  • Getting error while creating the variable of Schema Element type

    Hi everybody,
    For creating a variable of schema element type I am doing the following steps...
    Select 'Variables' after right clicking on bpel process. IN this window, go to 'Create VAriable' then select 'Element' type. Now in Type Choose, I expanded the my imported schema files. And selected a element type, then click ok to create this variable... I am getting the message...
    What is mean by that.
    I have imported the schema files in project. AFter that I have imported them into the WSDL also. Now why I am getting error while creating the variable. However I can create variable directly in .BPEL file then everything is fine. And it is working also. But what is mean with the above error? Why I am not able to create variable through GUI?

    I have this same problem this morning, and I was going crazy, until I found this webpage on the internet:
    The idea is that the jdeveloper is not very good working with directories with spaces on the directory name. If you move all your work to a directory without spaces, it will work smoothly. At least, it had worked for me.

  • How to catch error message inside a variable?

    I'm trying to catch the error message inside a variable using this this command below:-
    Could you please tell me what is the right approach to capture the error message inside a variable.

    Hi Bhabani,
    I have done this and select an oracle schema.But the variables only captures the (null).Please look into this.You must have one step prior to this refresh variable. Then only it can get the status as given below.
    Returns the one-letter code indicating the status with which the previous step terminated. The state R (Running) is never returned.
    D: Done (success)
    E: Error
    Q: Queued
    W: Waiting
    M: Warning
    If you want the complete error details then you will face issues in case of multi line message. For this best option would be jython variable.Could please provide me some idea how to use this jython variable.I will update you on this soon

  • Throwing error message in BEx variable

    I am using one of the variables in the user exit in cmod. in step1 & step2 I determine some values to be poplated in the variables. What is the ABAP command if say I want to show an error message on the variable screen? For Example, if I want to print that the value is invalid or something

    I want to re-phrase my quesitons a little bit.
    IN user exit there are 3 i-steps. What I want to do is the following.
    In i-step 2 I determine the values for 4 variables based on the 2 values that have default values. This works fine.
    However, if the user changes selection, I want to be able to check in i-step3 what user input and return an error i f values are not valid, so that the query does not run. It seems like step3 does not let me do it.
    Thank you,

  • Error when defining a variable  other than CHAR

  • Error while offsetting a variable

    Hello Experts
    I want to display the data for last 5 years in my query. So I tried using the SAP exit variable Current Calendar Year (0CYEAR) and the offset it by 5. However, I am getting the following error message for the query "System error in program SAPLRR12 and form REP_ASSIGN_INITIAL_OPT-01"
    Any Help on this is appreciated and points will be assigned.

    Thanks Chetan for your prompt reply. I have assigned points.
    But I would appreciate if you help me clear my understanding of offseting a variable.
    Say if the Current Calendar Year variable returns 2008, then will offseting that variable by 5 return me the data for years 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005 , 2004. Or, will it just return me the data for 2008 - 5 = 2004 only.

    You answered my doubt.This one really works . Thanks a lot !
    But i have one more doubt i.e if have created the Presentation variable in the dashboard prompt and I want to use it in a report
    i.e the scenario is If I have created a new column i.e " Revised Salary " in the Presentation Services and want the values to be entered there dynamically upon end users choice. For ex the end user selecrts value of 1 then the report would display an increament of 500 to all the employees in the " Revised Salary " column and if the end user select value of 2 .. the report would display a decrement of 500 in the " Revised salary column".
