Hi,

I got ” ORA-00913: too many values ” error in Oracle.

 

 

ORA-00913: too many values

 

Details of error are as follows.

ORA-00913: too many values
Cause: 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.

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


 

 

ORA-00913 error is related with the SQL statement that required two sets of equal values, you should enter more items in the second set than first set as follows.

INSERT INTO test_table
(name,last_name)
VALUES
('Mehmet', 'Deveci',1453);

You should fix above SQL Statement as follows.

SELECT *
FROM TEST_TABLE
WHERE id > 63
AND id IN (SELECT id FROM employee
