“ORA-06502: PL/SQL: numeric or value error: character string buffer too small ORA-06512: at "APPS.WF_NOTIFICATION", line #### ORA-06512: at line 5”

This error is received on the requisition approval notification for requisitions created with more than 35-40 lines/ distributions.

PLEASE NOTE: The approver can take an action (approve, reject or forward) on the notification, but the requisition line and distribution information will not be displayed in the notification as a result of the error message.

Until the technical issue causing the problem is resolved, the current workaround is to click on the ‘Requisitions’ tab from the Requisitions Home Page or go into PO Manager> Inquiry> Requisitions to view line items which were placed on the requisition.
