While Debugging the procedure i am getting
"ORA-06502: PL/SQL: numeric or value error: character string buffer too small

The above error is occurring in the Exception part while concatenating the errors into the variable i am getting the buffer too small error.

After assigning a proper datatype with huge size i am getting the above error.

I am using VARCHAR2 as a datatype for that variable.

Can anybody having a solution for my problem.
