Re: ORA-01438: value larger than specified precision allows



ORA-01438 value larger than specified precision allows for this column
      Cause: When inserting or updating records, a numeric value was
      entered that exceeded the precision defined for the column.
      Action: Enter a value that complies with the numeric column's
      precision, or use the MODIFY option with the ALTER TABLE command to
      expand the precision.

Sounds like you're inserting a value with too many decimal places into a
column with a specified precision (allowed decimal points).  In short, I
would identify the column, and perhaps use the SQR or Oracle round
function.
