    Can you elaborate on what this strange behaviour is? Any error messages you see will be most useful.

    Depends. Certainly not out-of-the-box.
    Have you seen this ? http://fdegrelle.over-blog.com/article-2615079.html
    It will also help to know what this CLOB column contents are. Plain text? XML?

    Cheers,
