    ORA-166512: string value too long for attribute "job_action"

    963638
      Tried to schedule a job in Oracle SQL Developer but got a message that the string value ..my PL/SQL code is too long... is there a way around this?

      Is there possibly a way to break the PL/SQL into parts that get scheduled executed in a certain order



      Thanks

          You could (and probably should) put your code in a procedure or package and the the job is just a call to the procedure.

              Okay ran into a bump putting it in a procedure...

              I am trying to schedule this SOA Purge script...


              spool soa11g_purge_script.log

              set echo on
              set verify on

              -- delete all instances older than 30 days
              define days=30

              alter session set current_schema=dev_soainfra;
              alter session set nls_date_format='yyyymmdd hh24mi';

              variable cur_datetime varchar2(13)
              exec select (sysdate - &days) into :cur_datetime from dual;

                That isn't PL/SQL, it is a SQLPlus script. You could still convert it to a procedure, but you would have to use a lot of dynamic SQL using "execute immediate" to run the ddl.

                The best thing to do is to set it up to run from a batch file or shell script and use the oracle scheduler to execute that as an external job.

                Or just use the OS scheduler.

                This has nothing to do with SQL Developer. If you have questions about the oracle scheduler you should ask in the Database - General forum.
