Oracle data type for long text


Recommended Posts

I'm a little confused here.


I have 3 fields in my table which require long text to be entered so the standard varchar2 isn't enough.


I tried the "LONG" data type but it errored saying a table can only have 1 LONG data type used.


Which data type do i use to cater for text for more than one column?

It depends on what the text contains- if it's literally text/characters, then use a CLOB - character long object. If it's to store "files", like image data, then you should use a BLOB - binary large object. Both are really fun to work with anyway! :)
