input value not long enough for date format

This ORA-01840 errors are related with the data to be converted to date format was incomplete; the date format picture was longer than the input data.

Either add more input or shorten the date picture format, then retry the operation.

You should use the NLS_DATE_FORMAT in your conversions.

You should check if column data types should be DATE, if all columns of type are not DATE, then you should use the to_date() function. Don’t rely on implicit conversions.
