I'm getting the below mentioned error when we call stored procedure named as Fetch_Analysis_Results from OCI program. Below attached is the error message, OCI program,stored procedure.

Error Message
executing fetch() for 1981 time
dbFetchOneRow(): Executing stored procedure
dbFetchOneRow(): Could not execute statment
ORA-06502: PL/SQL: numeric or value error: character string buffer too small
ORA-06512: at line 1

B: Text of OCI program
int dbFetchOneRow(AlarmInfo_t *alarmInfo)

text *plSqlProcedure = (text *)"BEGIN
FETCH_ANALYSIS_RESULT(:nodeType, :nodeName,:paramName, :severity, :thresholdValue, :functionType, :timeperiod, :varianceThreshold, :thresholdOperation, :thresholdFrequency, :profileType, :profileValue, :thresholdRate, :startTime, :endTime, :value);

check local variable declaration. normally you will get this error when you try to fetch or assign value into variable of less length than fetch column length.

ley us say, you declare variable a of length 2.
if you fetch value into that variable of lengh more than that results error.

a varchar2(2);
select b into a from table;
-- if b is of length 3, it will result in error.
