  2. hi
    this is an Oracle error.
    This happens when you are trying to insert a value in database , i.e larger than the size specified in database.
    for example ....
    in your database table is like this

    name varchar2(10)

    but you are trying to insert "Ashim Chakraborty" in that field.

    Hopefully it will solve your problem.
