ORA-00913

ORA-00913 too many values

What causes an ORA-00913 error?

The SQL statement requires two sets of values equal in number. This error occurs when the second set contains more items than the first set. For example, the subquery in a WHERE or HAVING clause may return too many columns, or a VALUES or SELECT clause may return more columns than are listed in the INSERT.

How Xynomix can help

Check the number of items in each set and change the SQL statement to make them equal.
