    How to Fix ORA-12899: value too large

    The other day I was installing Peopletools on a Linux instance when I came across this error and I am sure some body else also might get stuck at this stage so i would like to post the solution for this error.

    SQL Error. Error position: 129 Return: 12899 - ORA-12899: value too large for column "SYSADM". "PS_CAN_GOV_COUNTRY". "DESCR" (actual: 33, maximum: 30)
    Error: Unable to insert row 280
    Error: SQL execute error for CAN_GOV_COUNTRY
    Unsuccessful Completition
    Increase the destination column manually as required to insert the rows in that column.
    sql>desc PS_CAN_GOV_COUNTRY;
    Name                                      Null?    Type
    ----------------------------------------- -------- ----------------------------
    CAN_COUNTRY_CD                            NOT NULL VARCHAR2(5 CHAR)
    EFFDT                                     NOT NULL DATE
    EFF_STATUS                                NOT NULL VARCHAR2(1 CHAR)
    DESCR                                     NOT NULL VARCHAR2(30 CHAR)
    DESCRSHORT                                NOT NULL VARCHAR2(10 CHAR)
    sql> alter table PS_CAN_GOV_SCHOOL modify DESCR VARCHAR2(35);
    Table altered.
    sql> commit;
    Commit complete.
