Delphi 3, Oracle ODBC Driver + Oracle 8 VARCHAR2

Hi All,

I am currently progressing in a project for University and I am experiencing
a problem with Delphi 3.0 and Oracle 8. Whenever I try to insert a record
wth VARCHAR2 data types in Oracle, I receive the error message "Inserted
value is too large for column" when this is not the case.

Also seem to be having problems inserting date values into the date data
I have had to resort to storing dates as a standard CHAR type.

Any help on this would be gratefully received!
